Your Fort Lauderdale vacation

Somewhere between Miami glamour and South Beach relaxation lies the perfectly balanced, totally vibrant Fort Lauderdale. Once a teenage party destination, Fort Lauderdale still sings with golden beaches and ocean breezes, but the scene is decidedly cooler and swankier.

Play at notoriously clean beaches or spy mega-yachts and world-class cruise ships. Explore the vast Intercoastal or take on countless cultural or eco adventures. Shop Las Olas boutiques and dine in style or hit happening local bars for happy hour.

Whatever your pleasure, let the Orbitz travel team inspire your Fort Lauderdale vacation with the top 10 things to do, best times to hit the beach and lesser-known gems.

  • Known for hot (and hotter) weather, Fort Lauderdale brings on warm beach vacations with gusto. For ideal beach weather and the most popular time to visit Fort Lauderdale, plan your trip between November and April when highs range from the 70s to the low 80s, with nighttime lows in the 60s.

    For the best hotel deals and fewer crowds, come to Fort Lauderdale late May through October. But here's the catch: this "rainy season" typically brings brief afternoon showers, followed by increased humidity which can make the heat downright intense. On the flip side, the town is much more accessible, open and affordable.

  • Cruiser's Express water taxi

    Before or after a Port Everglades cruise, travel famed waterways to five top stops, including the beach and Las Olas.

  • Historic Walking Tour

    By full moon or daylight, spend one hour touring the historic district with the Fort Lauderdale Historic Society.

  • Happy Hour

    Celebrate a Fort Lauderdale tradition from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with reduced drinks and food at Southport Raw Bar, Tarpon Bend and more.

  • Sea Turtle Walk

    Join the Museum of Discovery and Science to explore Loggerhead sea turtle nesting grounds, select nights June to July.

  • Young at Art Children's Art Museum

    Find interactive exhibits and top studio classes in a rare art-only museum for kids.
