Unexpected & Unforgettable Fort Lauderdale
Journey with us back to the days when Fort Lauderdale was just a lonely little Indian trading post on the edge of the wild and formidable Everglades. It was during this time period that Seminole Indians would pole their long boats out of the Glades and down the New River to Stranahan’s Trading Post. In modern times, Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” due to its graceful waterways and maritime bearings. The city has been striving through its revitalized riverfront, carefully restored neighborhoods, vibrant downtown and beautified beachfront to become “one of the most beautiful cities in America.”
Explore some of Fort Lauderdale’s charming and historic neighborhoods as we recall the pioneering heritage and verdant enchantment of this proud city. Hear about the town’s hardy settlers and their stories of adventure and struggle in the untamed Florida wilderness that is now Sailboat Bend, Himmarshee Village, Rio Vista, Las Olas Boulevard, Coolee Hammock, Las Olas Isles and the world-famous Fort Lauderdale Beach.
Allow our guides to bring you some unique insights into the dynamics that endear this city to its residents and visitors alike. Once you have experienced the rich architectural spectrum, exciting museums, tropical gardens, tree-covered streetscapes and abundant civic pride that characterize today’s Fort Lauderdale, you too may be apt to admit that what you found here was both unexpected and unforgettable. We look forward to having you join us.
