The Top 10 things to do in Fort Lauderdale   by Isla Campbell

Famous as one of America's favourite holiday destinations, Florida's Fort Lauderdale encompasses some of the very best sights and attractions from the sunshine state, making a rewarding year-round getaway. Renowned amongst the sailing community for its many marinas, Fort Lauderdale has built up a steady and strong army of visitors who travel to it every year for boating, yachting and more. However, there are plenty of other reasons to visit this sun-kissed beach destination, and here are ten of the most popular.

Though all of the beaches in the area have their own unique character and perks, the most popular by far has to be Fort Lauderdale Beach itself. Thousands of visitors are drawn to this spotless beachfront all summer thanks to its miles of clean sand, warm waters and backdrop of busy bars, clubs and restaurants. For snorkelling around the famous Florida coral reef, head to Hillsboro Beach, or spend a day on Hollywood Beach to feel like you're on a movie set.

After a long day's sunbathing, stretch your legs a little at Sawgrass Recreation Park, where the Everglades come to life. Jump on one of the airboat tours and let a knowledgeable guide show you the real Everglades, complete with alligators and even reconstructed Seminole Indian villages. Or jump aboard a Jungle Queen Riverboat Tour to take a sightseeing trip of a lifetime up and down Florida's New River. Stop off for a BBQ on the Jungle Queen Indian Village Island and keep an eye out for wildlife on route.

Alternatively, following 'Florida's Most Beautiful Mile' is another equally good way of exploring Fort Lauderdale. This bustling downtown walk will take you through the city's historic district and past many of the top restaurants and museums, including the Museum of Discovery and Science. Designed for the whole family, this interactive museum is full of hands-on exhibits, a massive IMAX cinema and even a replica of a living forest.

Discover even more of Fort Lauderdale's indigenous wildlife by taking a visit to Butterfly World. Themed around a large rainforest, this family attraction has thousands of colourful butterflies, as well as caterpillars too, all in glass hot houses. Over at Flamingo Gardens you can spend a day exploring real botanical gardens, where dozens of these brightly-coloured wading birds live, as well as other wild inhabitants, like the river otter and even the wild bobcat.

Delving into Fort Lauderdale's historic past couldn't be easier as the city's many museums and exhibitions make learning about the area's history a treat. The Bonnet House Museum & Gardens dates back to the 1920s and, as such, is listed on America's National Register for Historic Sites. Once owned by artists Evelyn and Frederic Bartlett, the house and extensive woodland and swampland grounds were bequeathed to the Florida Trust and now remain as a conserved and untouched reminder of the city's bygone days.

Whatever reason you choose to visit this naturally vibrant and sun-kissed city, there are many Fort Lauderdale Hotels and restaurants to enjoy in between attractions.
