Welcome to The Fort Lauderdale MetroGuide service, your source for information on the Greater Fort Lauderdale area. The Fort Lauderdale MetroGuide is a member of the MetroGuide Network, a collection of information sites, all using a similar interface, for major metropolitan areas worldwide.
Greater Fort Lauderdale -- between Palm Beach and Miami -- embraces some 30 municipalities, from Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Hollywood along the shoreline, to newer communities such as Weston and Southwest Ranches stretching nearly into the Everglades. Many of these hospitable communities have full-scale agendas of arts, cultural and sports events along with year-around balmy fun.
Entertainment ranges from the incomparable Fort Lauderdale Boat Show or Air & Sea Show spectacles along famed Fort Lauderdale Beach to Florida Panthers action in Sunrise. In between are rodeos in Davie, jazz festivals on Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk, the annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and assorted arts and food festivals unfolding throughout Broward County. Each December, Greater Fort Lauderdale takes on added sparkle with stellar festivities tied to the Winterfest Boat Parade.
Just minutes from the shore is Greater Fort Lauderdale's Arts and Entertainment district, home to attractions, shops, restaurants and parks. Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk, a brick-lined promenade along historic New River, leads to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science with its 3D IMAX Theater, the Museum of Art and Stranahan House -- one-time pioneer trading post and home to the area's first school teacher.
