Fort Lauderdale warmly welcomes business professionals as well as vacationers with a chic, yet comfortably-casual attitude. The vibe is friendly, sunny, sophisticated…never stuffy. Nicknamed Venice of America for its beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, the city of Fort Lauderdale is part of the Greater Miami Area – the seventh-largest metro area in the U.S. – offering a wealth of pleasures by land or sea just minutes from the airport terminal.


Fort Lauderdale’s global influences are reflected in its arts and culture, spanning a wide array music, art, dance and theater, including nationally-acclaimed performances. The Broward Center of the Performing arts hosts concerts, ballet performances, operas and Broadway shows. Arts, jazz and blues festivals are scheduled throughout the year. And if you’re in town the first Sunday of the month, check out the SunTrust Jazz Sunday brunch, a live outdoors concert at Riverfront.
