Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a bustling metropolis with an estimated population of almost 200,000.

Spread out across 36 sun-soaked square miles, the city is brimming with everything from beautiful ocean views to metropolitan skylines, and is filled with activities that reaffirm why tourism is the city’s second largest industry.

Within walking distance of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center—the location of RM Auctions Fort Lauderdale auction—the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina boasts an array of tasty dining options, including one that’s poolside with a very attractive outdoor bar. The rooms at this restaurant’s hotel give a picturesque view of the ocean and the many boats – including cruise ships – traveling through. In fact, the Fort Lauderdale cruise ship port is one of the busiest around.

The Riverwalk in Fort Lauderdale provides a relaxing alternative to touring around the lively city. It features year-round events, some of which include seafood festivals and burger cook-offs. Staples of this site also include plentiful stores and boutiques, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and the Museum of Discovery and Science.

This city, rich in culture, offers hundreds of different gastronomic options that are sure to whet anyone’s appetite. Several of the restaurants are within walking distance of hotels, making them perfect for exploring the area by foot. A particular favourite restaurant of mine is 101 Ocean, which offers a delectable menu and a bar staff that executes cocktails with the utmost care and precision.

No matter what time of year, Fort Lauderdale is always bustling with events and activities. Whether it’s a day spent soaking up the sun along miles of sandy beaches or sitting down to dine al fresco, Fort Lauderdale is the place for you. And if the lights and glamour get to be too much, consider sitting poolside and ordering a tasty burger, cherishing the memories you’ve made in one of Florida’s most beautiful cities.
