If you’re happiest in the water, you’ll love holidaying in gorgeous Greater Fort Lauderdale. Boasting 23 miles of Blue Wave-certified beaches, the region is lapped by clear, turquoise waters warmed to perfection by the Gulf Stream throughout the year. It’s also the only place in the U.S. where you can snorkel and dive on a living coral reef straight from the beach, without needing a boat. At Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, a beach village with a laid-back vibe, plus Hollywood, complete with a two-mile-long boardwalk, you can swim a leisurely five minutes and discover the reef’s natural beauty.
