Fort Lauderdale
Glittering on the Gold Coast in the Sunshine State, Fort Lauderdale spreads across a chain of islets, linked by a network of waterways. Mucking about in boats is obviously one of the pleasures of a holiday in Fort Lauderdale, but this sophisticated resort city is great for landlubbers too, with magnificent beaches fronted by amore
Lots of rude people - Michael Smith. Date of travel: Aug 2008
Almost no one here is from For Lauderdale. Largely minorities, who are generally pleasant, but the caucasians are horrible. Rude traffic. Not a fun place at all. nasty

My husband and I went to Ft. Lauderdale to go deep sea fishing before we went on a cruise out of Miami. We were somewhat hesitant about what the area would look like because it was about 6 months after Hurricane Wilma hit. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The area was actually quite nice and the beaches weren't too bad. It was a little chilly the day we were at the beach and the beaches had some debris, but other than it wasn't too bad. We ate at a nice restaurant called the Bimini Boatyard. It was in walking distance of our hotel and we thought the sticky bread, or Bimini Bread, was awesome. I think the waitress thought we were a little crazy because we were raving about the bread. We were lucky on our fishing trip and my husband caught his swordfish. They hadn't been biting lately, so we were very happy we caught it. Other than the swordfish and giant turtle, that was all we caught that day. We were just glad it was what we were wanting to catch! The main dislikes we had about Ft. Lauderdale was the expense of the parking. We had to pay $14 a night to park our rental car ourselves at our hotel. Valet was $17! Tour Operator: Hotelscombined.com
