The Venice of America

Known as the "Venice of America" because of its elaborate canal system, sunny Fort Lauderdale boasts a semi-tropical climate, blissful year-round ocean breezes, 3,000 hours of annual sunshine, dazzling scenery and fantastic beaches. A favorite vacation spot for families, the coastal city offers a range of activities at sea, including boating, snorkeling, fishing and a variety of water sports. And there are plenty of diversions on land as well, such as the Beachfront Promenade, a top spot for strolling and biking, and Las Olas Boulevard, the area's hip shopping, dining, arts and culture thoroughfare, running east to west to create the exquisite Riverwalk.

  • More Ways to Unwind: Fort Lauderdale's Best Spas

    If warm ocean and soft sand aren't relaxing enough, then we recommend a taking a spa day. In Fort Lauderdale, the luxuriant treatment options seem almost as endless as the sunny days.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale Spa. This elegant, full-service resort spa features 11 treatment rooms spread throughout 8,500 square feet of finely appointed space, which also includes a state-of-the-art Technogym fitness center and luxury spa boutique. Take your pick of indulgences, from massages to manicures and pedicures - and if sun damage or anti-aging are concerns, the Ritz-Carlton Spa proudly offers the area's only Chiral facials, a gentle, plant stem cell-derived treatment to help combat fine lines and wrinkles.

    Bliss Spa.  Tucked between the dazzling Atlantic shoreline and the calm Intracoastal waterway along Florida's Gold Coast, this trendy resort spa is true to its name: Whether you stop in for a quick treatment après sunbathing, or devote the full day to pampering, a visit to this hip, retro-inspired facility is pure bliss. We recommend the ginger rub to help exfoliate sun-battered skin after a day of beach bumming - and while you're relaxing post-massage, don't miss the spa's infamous brownie bar for a real indulgence.

    Red Door Spa Fort Lauderdale. Nestled in the popular Galleria Mall, this day spa feels so blissfully removed from the hustle and bustle of the city that you never feel as though you're in retail space. Clean lines and contemporary furnishings echo the modern interior of more urban destination spas, such as Red Door's flagship in New York City. And the treatments, ranging from facials and massages to body scrubs and aqua therapies, are sure to take you away.

    Heavenly Spa by Westin, Fort Lauderdale. The AAA Four Diamond Westin Beach Resort & Spa is an unexpected indulgence along the white-sand beaches of North Fort Lauderdale, providing a range of personalized treatments within a sleek, modern facility. Beyond the usual massage offerings, try the signature 'Rollersage,' a luxurious take on traditional hot stone treatments, featuring heated crystalline spheres that are believed to enhance energy while helping to melt away stress and tension.
