Miami Beach, look out. Fort Lauderdale Beach continues to evolve from a seasonal tourist spot to a year ‘round family destination. For good reason. Fort Lauderdale has more than seven miles of sandy beaches that are home to restaurants, sidewalk cafes, nightlife venues, shops, nearby homes and luxury oceanfront condominiums.
Drive through these neighborhoods to see some of Florida's most spectacular homes and most striking tropical landscape designs by award winning landscape designer, Luis Llenza. In fact, these east-side neighborhoods have seen truly luxurious new construction activity. Buyers are coming in, purchasing one or more adjacent, waterfront lots, tearing down the existing homes and building modern marvel mansions. One buyer bought three lots on a point and built a lavish 12,000-square-foot home.
Boasting some of the most beautiful beaches in the United States, Fort Lauderdale Beach is wide bicycle zones and pedestrian friendly with safe walkways for those taking a stroll. Trendy and timeless, what once was known as “the strip” today hosts daytime shopping and tasty eateries with a flourishing nightlife.
Fort Lauderdale also is home to St. Pius Catholic Church and The Galt Mile Synagogue. Whether in highrise condos or single-family homes, with approximately 10,000 residents, there’s something for everyone.
SUN-SPLASHED SPLENDOR . . .
The host to many major events throughout the year, Fort Lauderdale Beach is the home to the Greater Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and the 4th of July Family Celebration. The yearly Winterfest Boat Parade and Fort Lauderdale Air & Sea Show are huge attractions to Fort Lauderdale residents and nonresidents alike.
Condos line the beach, selling for between $200,000 and $2 million in crown jewel buildings like L'Hermitage, L'Ambiance, and The Palms. The Intracoastal Waterway is lined with residential buildings like The Sapphire, Vantage View, and La Rive who boast prize-winning views. There is nothing quite like watching the sunset from a sky rise apartment along the ocean, or experiencing the colors of a sunset reflecting from the Intracoastal.
Most single family homes sell for more than $700,000 and it is not unusual for homes in the Fort Lauderdale Beach area to sell for values extending far into seven figures.
Fort Lauderdale Beach visitors and vacationers typically stay at the W Fort Lauderdale, B Ocean Fort Lauderdale, Pelican Grand Beach Resort, The Westin Beach Resort & Spa Fort Lauderdale, or The Ritz Carlton Ft. Lauderdale.
The Fort Lauderdale Beach area is also known for their award winning gay accommodations. The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa, The Grand Resort and Spa, Royal Palms Resort and Spa, and Pineapple Point Guesthouse & Resort are among the most popular hotels for gay visitors.
