Fort Lauderdale

Just because the U.S. acquired Florida from Spain in 1821, didn't mean it came easy.
The City of Fort Lauderdale is named after the series of three forts built by the U.S. (the first by a Major Lauderdale) during the Seminole Wars (fought to forcibly relocate the Indians).  

The picturesque residential areas near the coast with its intricate system of waterways and canals is what comes to mind when you think of life in Fort Lauderdale is that everybody has a boat but the City is much larger than the narrow strip with ocean access along its eastern edge.  Although the 2006 Census estimate put the population 185,804, there are an estimated 42,000 boats making the "Venice of America" nickname seem appropriate.

The downtown area is growing. A clean vibrant area, there are 2 shopping and dining meccas that residents and tourists flock to: Riverwalk and Las Olas.  The residential areas offer a big variety of homes in size and price. There are approximately 90 different neighborhoods (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_neighborhoods_in_Fort_Lauderdale).  Fort Lauderdale airport is often used instead of Miami by South Florida residents because it is less busy and sometimes offers cheaper flights.  A major seaport, Port Everglades is a major cruise ship hub.  Fort Lauderdale offers all the amenities of a large city in a cleaner, brighter resort-town setting.

Fort Lauderdale also has an interesting history. The city grew up around the abandoned Second World War forts that were built in the area under the command of a Major Lauderdale.
