Living in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale lies on the Atlantic coast of the United States, in Florida. With over 11km of shoreline and a tropical climate, life in the city is spent outdoors, by the water and on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Once known as a spring break hotspot for college students, today Fort Lauderdale attracts more affluent visitors, with Americans fleeing the cold weather in the north for a warmer winter and spring in Florida. Expats living in Fort Lauderdale will be able to enjoy the Florida lifestyle with thousands of restaurants, bars and nightclubs to enjoy. With all of that choice, expatriates can use the discussion groups and forums on InterNations to connect with other expats in Fort Lauderdale to get their recommendations or even to find a dinner buddy. There is also a fantastic arts culture in the city, with the Riverwalk district being dedicated to music and entertainment and annual music festivals; Langerado and Tortuga.

Moving to Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is not only known for its coast, but also the network of canals that weave through the city. Millions of tourists visit each year to see 'the Venice of America' and take in tourist attractions like the Billie Swamp Safari. Unlike many cities, Fort Lauderdale has a unique system for designating and recognizing neighborhoods, with more than 60 districts having been recognized. The downtown area around Las Olas Boulevard has been extensively redeveloped with new hotels and condominiums which may be an ideal spot for an expatriate in Fort Lauderdale. If you are an expat moving to Fort Lauderdale, you can find help with choosing where to settle by connecting with other expats for advice on the forums and discussion groups at InterNations. Expats in Fort Lauderdale will also be able to help with information on apartments, housing and even storage.
