The 23 miles of sun-kissed beaches and extensive canals and waterways which have seen the area dubbed 'the Venice of America' are all yours to explore on a Fort Lauderdale holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
This part of the Florida coast capitalises on its beautiful natural location by offering a range of nature-watching, sightseeing and fishing tours, any of which will let you get right to the heart of this stunning area. And of course, the best way to explore the extensive system of waterways is to take a boat trip.
If you love to shop, you'll love Fort Lauderdale. This is a chic resort, with plenty of classy boutiques, relaxing sidewalk cafes and upmarket restaurants where you might even be able to indulge in some star-spotting.
Not far out of town is one of America's biggest outlet malls, Sawgrass Mills, which boasts no fewer than 400 stores, so it's definitely the place to stock up on your gifts and souvenirs.
For a spot of culture, you should try the Museum of Art or the whole family will get lots from a visit to the Museum of Discovery and Science, where you're actively encouraged to take a hands-on approach with the exhibits and displays.
A Fort Lauderdale package holiday or all-inclusive holiday will be the best-value way of seeing this chic location. And you're only a 20-minute drive from the Everglades, one of America's foremost natural attractions, and home to a large colony of alligators.
For a break which lets you sample the high life, USA-style, you couldn't do better than pick a Fort Lauderdale holiday from The Co-operative Travel.
