As one of the nation’s fastest-growing metropolises, Fort Lauderdale offers an unmatched array of cultural, fitness, and lifestyle amenities — many, just steps from The Residences at W Fort Lauderdale. From sailing to shopping, museums to marinas, the city is truly a world-class destination.
With its sun-kissed beaches and azure Atlantic Ocean, Fort Lauderdale has long been known as the Venice of America. Today, the city is an official boating mecca — excelling at everything from cruising to yachting to stand-up paddle boarding. There’s fishing, of course, along with the annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and both the International Fishing and Swimming Halls of Fame.
Fort Lauderdale is also excelling on the cultural front. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts, one of the top 10 most visited theaters in the world, and the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale are testaments to the city’s tradition of high-culture excellence. There’s also kid-friendly fun at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science and Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theatre. A clutch of elegant country clubs and premier golf courses offer ideal settings for both low-key deal-making and casual competition. And the nearby Hard Rock Stadium is where serious sports fans find pro-level fun.
With its world-class shopping, fine dining, and all-access outdoor activities, Fort Lauderdale isn’t just for vacations — it’s a place to truly call home.
