You’re guaranteed to find a spot along the 23 miles of shoreline in Fort Lauderdale. As opposed to Miami, Fort Lauderdale is not as jam-packed with people, allowing for more relaxation after months of exams and schoolwork. So, grab a towel and lay in the sun, or take a swim in the Atlantic.
Sick of tanning? Stay outside and take a dive charter to experience Fort Lauderdale underwater. Dive through the caves and reefs to see a wide array of sea life or scuba through the wrecks of different boats off the coastline of Fort Lauderdale.
