Heading down for a coastal escape to Fort Lauderdale? I’ve shortlisted the ultimate list of the best AirBNBs in Fort Lauderdale to make choosing your dream stay simple and easy. 

Tucked away on the south-east coast of the great state of Florida, Fort Lauderdale is less talked about that its bigger neighbor Miami (which is only 30 minutes away), but totally deserves more credit as a top U.S destination for fun in the sun. 

This cozy city may only have half the population that Miami does, but it has a seriously impressive amount of things to see, do and experience. 

Known for its stunning beaches, boats and waterfront lifestyle, Fort Lauderdale is a leafy city with a community vibe. There’s a range of family-friendly suburbs, and the central hotspot is Las Olas Boulevard, an oceanside strip jam-packed with restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, luxury residences and upmarket hotels.

Fort Lauderdale: 4-Hour Deep Sea Drift Fishing Trip

“Spend 4 hours drift fishing aboard the Catch My Drift off the coast of Fort Lauderdale and fish for snappers, grouper, mahi mahi and more. Just 1 mile off the coast, you will experience deep waters, the Gulfstream current, and stunning coastal views.”

https://www.getyourguide.com/fort-lauderdale-l1392/4-hour-deep-sea-drift-fishing-trip-in-fort-lauderdale-t32207/

Price: From $65 USD (4 hours)

Review: “The boat ride out to the drifting spot was worth the price of admission by itself. The captain and crew worked very hard to try to get as many people to catch something with good amount of moving the boat location and constantly changing the bait. The initial instruction on how to use the reel was done in such a way as to not make us greenhorns feel like we were in kindergarten. Will definitely add this to my standard list of fun things to do when visitors come to town.” – Stephanie, United States
