The popular Florida city of Fort Lauderdale is no stranger to travelers. While the metro area is home to approximately 5.5 million, the city welcomes a whopping 10 million or more each year to its beaches, canals and inland attractions. With a track record like that, it's hard not to indulge in a trip to this Floridian hot spot. Book your car rental in Fort Lauderdale and get ready to have some fun!
A new way of boat travel
Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America," so why not park your Fort Lauderdale car rental near one of the city's many canals and spend a few leisurely hours on the water? While traditional gondolas are a watercraft option, you can also tour the canals from the comfort of a water taxi. Whatever transportation method you choose, just remember to sit back, relax and enjoy the tropical sights and climate!
Don't get your feet wet
Florida is known for its marshy habitat, but in Fort Lauderdale, you don't have to fight your way through the muck to explore this enchanting ecosystem. Direct your rental car in Fort Lauderdale in the direction of Tree Tops Park to see the natural area's 243-plus acres. Boardwalks cover 23 acres of freshwater marsh, so you'll have no trouble staying dry while you examine local birds and reptiles along your walks. You can also investigate some of Fort Lauderdale's oldest history in the park at Pine Island Ridge, a 102-acre archaeological site that includes a number of nature trails.
A sight for sore eyes
Part botanical garden, part butterfly sanctuary, no one's ever too old to enjoy the attractions of Butterfly World. Located just a few short miles from the city center in the nearby city of Coconut Creek, Butterfly World is a perfect day trip to take in your Fort Lauderdale rental car. Relax in the Tropical Rain Forest Aviary amid the many winged gems who reside here - there are few experiences that are quite as calming as a butterfly softly landing on your shoulder, finger or arm. Take a gander at the thunderous waterfall, feed the fish at the rainforest pond, or just take the time to smell the roses … or the numerous other tropical flowers!
Casual meets sophisticated in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, where the deep blue ocean and its spectacular beaches give way to the world-famous Everglades and some of the best dining and nightlife in the state.
