Fort Lauderdale
Hospitality Industry

Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Fort Lauderdale area.

Fort Lauderdale was a small, very informal beach resort town without much civilization around it, a nice retreat from the crowds of Miami, and especially popular among college age vacationers. Interest in this coastal playground soared when the film Where the Boys Are was released, and Fort Lauderdale became the preferred venue for Spring Break. The open air Elbo Room lounge at the corner of Las Olas and A1A still looks the same and is the last remaining vestige of that era. As the population increased, along with the city's revenue, Fort Lauderdale made an irreversible decision to be less hospitable to Spring Break, and instead convert the beach strip into a more upscale commercial area with sidewalk cafes, and an elegant shopping mall.

Whether it was Spring Break's move elsewhere, or the steadily growing population and civic infrastructure, Fort Lauderdale has become an exemplary all-American city of ever-increasing size, and now sprawls well into what used to be undeveloped Everglades. The legendary golf courses of Inverrary and Bonaventure, the proximity to the Everglades National Park, the longest stretch of unobstructed public municipal beach in Florida, the canals that have inspired the nickname "Venice of Florida" where you can take water taxis most anywhere you want to go within the city limits, and the still moderate size of a town where you can find everything found in bigger, less maneuverable cities all continue to make Fort Lauderdale a superior choice for your vacation or business meeting.
