Every city and town in America has its own distinct personality and if you are just moving to our area you are in for a pleasant surprise as you begin to appreciate the three key attributes that help to define Fort Lauderdale:
As you look around our city you will begin to see that Fort Lauderdale is a unique blend of well defined neighborhoods, each with its own community focus, and all located within a city that is big enough to offer all the finest amenities yet small enough to still have a hometown feel.
That defined neighborhood approach was no accident and came about over twenty years ago when our city came together and set a goal of making Fort Lauderdale the best city of her size in national rankings, and in less than a decade we reached that goal and never looked back.
Whatever your interests and whatever your lifestyle there is a community here for you in the Greater Fort Lauderdale region:
If you're a beach person your love our offerings in areas like Harbor Beach, Coral Ridge, or even Lauderdale by the Sea. We have condos, co-ops, town homes, and single family residences to match your requirements and price point.
If you're a boater Fort Lauderdale is your paradise with our system of canals and waterways that meanders throughout the city and again, offers a full range of housing options and price points. Fort Lauderdale has been officially recognized as the "Boating Capital of America" and we are the home of the world's largest boat show held each October.
If you are raising a family you'll find neighborhoods with great schools as well as community activities focused on the needs of growing families. We even have outstanding perimeter areas like Plantation, Parkland, Davie, and Weston that each offer unique opportunities for people with special interests, even horses!
If you're getting ready to retire and kick back and become a snowbird then you will love our youthful attitude that makes Fort Lauderdale so special. This is a place you come to remain active and healthy, not a place to get old and depressed. If you see three guys in their 80's at a coffee shop in Lauderdale they are probably working on a deal not sitting around comparing their aches and pains!
If you are looking to relocate your business or start a new one you'll find that Fort Lauderdale maintains a vibrant business community with national, regional, and local companies all contributing to the economic health and vitality of our community.
On behalf of everyone in my company and everyone in our community I would like to welcome you to what I believe is the best city in America – Fort Lauderdale, Florida!
