Fort Lauderdale to Bahamas Port Guide
Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Guide
The US city of Fort Lauderdale is located in the State of Florida and lies on the Atlantic Ocean coast, roughly 40 km to the north of Miami. The city's average year round temperature of 77 degrees F, with around 3,000 hours of sunshine, make it a very popular tourist destination.
The city takes its name from a series of forts which were constructed by the US during the Second Seminole War in the first part of the 19th century. For visitors interested in the arts, then a trip to the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District is a must. This area runs along Las Olas Boulevard, east to west, from the beach area to the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale.
There is a daily ferry service between Fort Lauderdale and Freeport on the Grand Bahama Island. The 76 mile journey takes roughly 2 hours.
