Ask any student in Florida what their plans for Spring Break is…the answer will be one of the most unanimous ones you’ll ever receive. Fort Lauderdale has long been established as the quintessential Spring Break destination what with an unending flow of beer, beach shores and of course, wet t-shirt contest. This perception is however, slowly changing as all age groups are thronging the city of Fort Lauderdale, and not just for beer mind you! It’s now a place where you can have a family holiday as well as a weekend getaway…the cultural side of Fort Lauderdale has blended in smoothly with its touristy fever to welcome a much more stable and substantial crowd.If you venture inland, away from the beaches and shacks, Fort Lauderdale might actually surprise you- in a nice kind of way. With its extensive canal system, get from one point to another by water and explore the land on foot. With museums, estates and parks to whet your tourist appetite and beaches and piers to balance out any overdose of history and culture.
