Ft. Lauderdale family vacation deals, ideas and travel tips
Greater Fort Lauderdale, the area that makes up Hollywood, Deerfield Beach, Coral Springs and a dozen or so more municipalities, sprawls for more than 20 miles along the Broward County beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Famous more than two decades ago as a "spring break" spot, Fort Lauderdale has become family-friendly. No more wet T-shirt contests, but great restaurants, wonderful shopping and a fine assortment of accommodations make it an ideal getaway for families with children!
The area is popular with those who love the water: swimming, diving, fishing, boating of all kinds and just soaking up those rays on some truly magnificent beaches have long been the attraction. With water, water everywhere, there's even an International Fishing Hall of Fame in Dania Beach, and an International Swimming Hall of Fame on Fort Lauderdale Beach.
