Fort Lauderdale lies on the Atlantic coast of South Florida and is within Broward County. This city is the county seat of Broward County. Known as the “Venice of America,” it is defined by its beautiful waters and 7-mile long public beaches, yachting, boating, its canal system, museums, parks, and businesses. Fort Lauderdale, which was established in 1911, is located between Miami and Palm Beach. With a large population of almost 180,000, it is the largest city in all of Broward County, and the seventh largest city in Florida. More than half of Fort Lauderdale’s residents are American/white, followed by a relatively large African population and a slightly smaller Hispanic population.
This myriad of waterways city is named after Major William Lauderdale, who fortified several forts against the Seminoles in the mid 1800s. Fort Lauderdale is a continually growing economic, international, and commercial business center with industries like finance, marine, manufacturing, real estate, technology, insurance, film and television production, and aerospace.
