With a reputation as a Low-Key Get-Away, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, is a 1/2 mile wide hamlet which has that old fashioned, charming "beach village" vibe. This town is one of the only locations in Florida where the three-tier natural coral reef system is close enough for visitors to swim out for snorkeling or diving.

Retro Cool, Hollywood Beach is home to the Boardwalk which runs 2 ½ miles up and down this sun-kissed oceanfront. Visitors can stroll along on foot or hop on a bike and find a great outdoor café to wile away the hours watching "man's best friend" run up and down the area's favorite dog beach.

Top 10 Things To Do in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
By Renee Chapple

1. Hit the Beach!
Fort Lauderdale's beaches offer crystal-clear water, beautiful white sand and great weather year-round! You'll probably find the beaches of Fort Lauderdale a little tamer than South Beach but just as much fun for the family!
2. Everglades
With 1.5 million acres of swamps, saw-grass prairies and sub-tropical jungles, Everglades National Park is one of the most unusual public parks in the United States. Located on the southern tip of Florida, the park is home to 14 rare and endangered species, including the American Crocodile, the Florida Panther and the West Indian Manatee. A large portion of the park is primitive, explored only by adventurists and researchers – but visitors have ample opportunity to walk, camp and canoe.
3. Museum of Discovery and Science
Your kids will love Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Discovery and Science. You're bound to find a learning adventure for the whole family. The museum is home to over 200 exhibits including the largest living coral reef in captivity, bats, snakes, the Runways to Rockets aerospace exhibit and an IMAX theater.
4. Butterfly World
Butterfly World offers visitors a fun, educational opportunity to get an up-close look at this 10-acre butterfly farm and research facility. In addition to being the birthplace of over a million butterflys, Butterfly World features the largest free-flight hummingbird aviary in the United States.
5. Las Olas Riverfront
Las Olas is Fort Lauderdale's hottest place to eat, drink and be merry! If you're nautically inclined, feel free to pull up in your boat and dock for free! The restaurants of Las Olas will serve you right on your boat!
6. Flamingo Gardens
Flamingo Gardens is a 60-acre sanctuary that showcases the natural beauty of the Florida Everglades. It features native, rare and exotic plants and animals. You can also tour a working citrus grove, visit the free-flight aviary or tour the 1930s Wray Home.
7. Secret Woods Nature Center
The Secret Woods Nature Center is one of South Florida's secret gems. This preserve is part of the Broward County Parks system and is located in Dania Beach, just a half mile west of I-95 exit 25. Secret Woods features a 3,800 square foot walk-through butterfly preserve, two nature trails and an interpretive center. It's a great place to visit with or without children and reconnect with the natural beauty of South Florida.
8. Buehler Planetarium & Observatory
The Buehler Planetarium & Observatory, tucked away on the campus of Broward Community College in Davie, is a small, but wonderful attraction for science lovers. You'll rarely find a crowd at the Buehler, allowing you to benefit from the knowledge and attention of the talented staff. Hours are very limited, so check their website in advance for show times and public observatory hours.
9. Gulfstream Park and Casino
Gulfstream Park is one of the state's approved "racinos" offering a combination of thoroughbred horse racing and casino gaming. If you're the gambling type, or you just enjoy horse races, Gulfstream's a great place to spend a day.
10. Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA)
The Broward Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA) is one of South Florida's premier entertainment venues. BCPA features musical entertainment, theater and other special events. Check their website for upcoming performances and show times.
