Fort Lauderdale is a coastal city on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Florida. And it’s US version of “Venice” because of the canal system throughout the city. If an ordinary American must have a car, then it is normal for a local to have a boat or a small yacht. And ther are beaches, sun, relaxation and food.
Despite the fact that this airport is on the list of the 50 busiest in the world, renovation has not been carried out here for a long time. Although they plan to start soon. It really needs an update, because Hollywood Airport looks rather "tired" and shabby.
The airport consists of 4 large terminals, between which internal shuttles run. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants and recreation areas everywhere. Although it should be noted that the quality of local food and service is not appreciated by travelers. Well, at least there is everywhere access to free Internet so that you can pass the time in anticipation of migration control. Moreover, the staff here may also not be too welcoming. Just try to finish everything as quickly as possible and finally go to rest in the city.

A day at Fort Lauderdale is a day at the beach. And there is nothing wrong with that, because the beaches here are truly luxurious.

Nevertheless, every new traveler still goes to the beach at first. Although there are other interesting places. About them further.
If you will pass by a building called NSU Art Museum, be sure to stop and look inside. This art museum contains one of the most extensive collections of paintings by the American surrealist William Glackens, as well as 6,000 works by artists from around the world, including avant-garde artists from the Second World War. Even the modernist building itself is already interesting to study, but the collection is definitely worth several hours of study.
In the vicinity of Fort Lauderdale is a series of Everglades swamps. So that they did not stand idle in vain, the locals came up with crazy entertainment: riding a high-speed airboat.

Perhaps Florida cannot boast of some authentic dishes. Still, it is a tourist destination that is trying to please everyone. But Fort Lauderdale can surprise you with unusual tastes.
In Fort Lauderdale, you can find literally everything: from Italian cuisine to Argentinean, from Indian to Vietnamese. Moreover, all this food will taste almost indistinguishable from what you can try in the country where it was invented.
But bypassing American restaurants is not worth it. They make great burgers and American pies with anything inside, which is just what the cook’s imagination lacks. And including Fort Lauderdale, you can find seafood everywhere, including oysters and lobsters. And you can drink all this with local craft beer, which is brewed here in dozens of small breweries.
