About Fort Lauderdale
Take advantage of TPIE's idyllic location in Fort Lauderdale which boasts a variety of cultural, historical, and social activities. Fort Lauderdale's 23 miles of beaches are, of course, a popular draw. Stroll, bike, or skate along Atlantic Boulevard and the Beach Promenade, or take part in the many water sports available, such as kite surfing. Fort Lauderdale is also known as the "Venice of America," due to its extensive canal system. A water taxi tour along the inland canals will give you easy and inexpensive access to major points throughout the city, as well as allow you a glimpse of the rich and famous along what's known as "Millionaire's Row." Fort Lauderdale offers every amenity you could possibly want: an eclectic dining scene, theater, dancing, museums, golf, shopping, boating and, of course, miles and miles of pristine beaches.
