Florida is known as the "Sunshine State" thanks to its 310 days of sunshine per year and 900 miles of beautiful palm-lined beaches. Our City is one of the most delightful locations in the U.S. It is only 25 minutes by car from Miami and it is surrounded by parks and beaches. Fort Lauderdale is an attractive residential area and offers countless free-time activities. The Museum of Modern art is within walking distance and so is world-renowned Las Olas Boulevard, a shopping and restaurant heaven. 

The state offers a variety of natural attractions, such as a long chain of islands off the southern coast, over 30,000 lakes and the Everglades National Park. This park preserves the natural habitat for thousands of tropical plants and animals and is still home to Indian tribes. Fort Lauderdale itself is internationally known as the "Venice of America" with 85 miles of navigable waterways and canals.
