Fort Lauderdale is known as "America’s Favorite Beach Community" due to its spectacular beach as well as the "Venice of America" due to its extensive canal system. Its waterways are lined with luxurious mansions, high-rise condominiums, resort hotels, as well as towering office buildings. Located 25 miles north of Miami and 40 miles south of West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale lies near the center of more than five million people on Florida’s Southeast coast. Fort Lauderdale was the favorite hot spot for spring breakers well into the 1980s and remains popular for them today. Fort Lauderdale is considered a downtown business district, a beachfront, and a nightlife mecca for Broward County and its surroundings. Fort Lauderdale is home to Port Everglades, one of the largest freight and cruise ports in the United States.
