Fort Lauderdale Vacations

As you amble along Ft. Lauderdale’s waterways—which glisten under the evening sun—you pause a moment to do some reflecting of your own. Your adventure in this city has been a meaningful one, wise wanderer. The meandering canals, rows of skyscrapers, and pristine beachfront have opened your eyes to the beauty of Florida’s bustling Broward County. Yet as fast-paced as life is here compared to more rural areas of the state, you don't feel rushed at all. The rolling ocean waves have a calming effect on this city that permeates every part of town. To think, when you booked this Fort Lauderdale getaway, you weren’t sure what was in store for you. Now that you’re here, you don’t ever want to leave.

Major Attractions

When you embark on your Fort Lauderdale vacation, you’ll discover a city overflowing with activities. Gamble at one of the casinos, then hop on a yacht and explore the Intracoastal Waterway…or simply stretch out beneath the sunshine on Fort Lauderdale Beach or Las Olas Beach. You can cycle, snorkel, and golf as well, and even take an air tour over the city or the nearby Everglades. Soak up some of the area’s cultural history by wandering the Museum of Discovery and Science or the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens. For shopping, eating, and drinking, look no further than Las Olas Boulevard and the downtown area.

Hotels in Fort Lauderdale

The magic begins as soon as you arrive in this splendid Southeastern city. If this is your first time in this part of Florida and you can’t decide which hotel would make the best home base, here’s a look at four of the city’s finest accommodations.

  • B Ocean Resort: Do you crave the feeling of the wind in your hair? This resort provides free bike rentals, allowing you to cruise up and down the coast at your leisure. It’s located close to downtown Fort Lauderdale and the airport, and features nautical-inspired rooms that call to mind the sound of the sea. Hop on a water taxi, explore the Everglades, or go deep sea fishing, then return to the B Ocean for dinner at the on-site restaurant.
  • The Atlantic Hotel & Spa: Soak up more of Fort Lauderdale’s rich culture with a stay at this upscale beachfront hotel. After a long day of adventuring, relax at the Atlantic’s award-winning spa, or settle down for a drink at the poolside bar and cafe. In the mood for something fancier? Reserve a table at the Beauty & the Feast Bar & Kitchen, which is adjacent to the radiant lobby, or head up to the fifth floor for casual fare and remarkable views at the Ocean Market Grille.
  • Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach: Take a siesta on the sundeck, feel the breeze on your skin, and enjoy an amazing meal at this modern beachfront hotel. With a refined atmosphere and excellent location, the Sonesta puts you in the middle of Fort Lauderdale’s shopping, dining, and entertainment scene, ensuring you’ll won’t run out of activities to pursue. But eat light while you’re exploring the city, so you can enjoy a delectable entree at Bistro, the Sonesta’s waterfront restaurant.
  • W Fort Lauderdale: Sporting an iconic, sailboat-inspired construction unlike anything else the city, this exotic retreat is anything but ordinary. Take a dip at WET, the hotel’s glistening rooftop pool, then warm your bones by the fire pit and poolside bar. The W’s on-site steakhouse, STEAK 954, is also not to be missed, and the 23rd-floor Bliss Spa invites you to enjoy sweeping views of the city while indulging in unrivaled rejuvenation treatments.
