Besides the great weather and friendly people, civic leaders in Fort Lauderdale have made major investments in changing the popular stereotype of their city as just a spring break destination that appeals to young people. In fact, the city’s 23 miles of now-pristine rejuvenated beaches which have been honored with national Blue Wave Beach certification as among the safest, cleanest, and user-friendly beaches in the country which are a far cry from the beer-can littered image that many people think of when it comes to Fort Lauderdale. The Fort Lauderdale area also has more than 300 miles of navigable waterways in the form of creeks, rivers and canals and it is not surprising that city residents have more docks than driveways. Nevertheless, the city still suffers from a relatively high crime rate that is more than twice the national average so stay safe and travel in groups.
