1. Fort Lauderdale Beach
You can’t visit Fort Lauderdale without visiting the beach with the same name. There’s plenty to do on this stretch of sand, which runs a little over a mile from the infamous Las Olas Boulevard. Along the shore you’ll find people learning how to surf, paddle board and even taking part in underwater adventures like snorkeling. The area is also known for its high-class hotels like the W Fort Lauderdale and the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, as well as incredible restaurants, many of which boast beach-front views.
