Fort Lauderdale's outstanding quality of life results from an unsurpassed combination of cultural, recreational and educational amenities that have attracted a highly trained, well-educated, diverse work force. The world famous Fort Lauderdale Beach, the downtown Riverwalk, the Center for the Performing Arts and the Museum of Art, the Swimming Hall of Fame and Las Olas Boulevard, are but a few of the landmarks that flourish in Fort Lauderdale.
Nearly 300 miles of navigable waterways crisscross Broward County, which is how Ft. Lauderdale got its nickname: "The Venice of America." If you love water, Fort Lauderdale is a dream come true. The city's annual indoor boat show is the world's largest. The Christmas parade isn't a bunch of floats winding down Main Street; it's a plethora of boats floating down the Intracoastal Waterway. Fort Lauderdale is so obsessed with water, there's even an International Swimming Hall of Fame and the well renowned Beach Place with excellent opportunities for shopping and dining.
Historic homes such as the Stranahan House and Bonnet House offer a glimpse of the hardships settlers endured in the early part of this century. A five-story IMAX movie screen and hands-on exhibits for kids draw thousands to the Museum of Science and Discovery. The $50 million Broward Center for the Performing Arts now lures those who once jetted off to New York for opera and theater.
For new or expanding businesses, Fort Lauderdale offers one of the best business climates in Florida. Located in the heart of Southeast Florida, with convenient, efficient transportation and communication resources, Fort Lauderdale is fast becoming an international business hub with expanding global business opportunities in the Americas, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. A diverse labor pool, excellent quality of life, and progressive city government make Fort Lauderdale an unbeatable location for businesses to take root and succeed.
The transformation is so dramatic that Greater Fort Lauderdale unabashedly adopted a new tagline ? ?Greater Than Ever Fort Lauderdale.?
