Where the boys were is now where the families are in a city that worked hard to break away from its spring break party destination and rebuilt itself as a family-friendly one. Gone are the multitudes of bars and motels that once lined A1A, formerly a densely packed cruising road along the beach referred to by locals as "The Strip." Today, luxurious resorts catering to families and open-air restaurants complement the sandy, open beaches.

Nearby, the city's art district surrounds Las Olas Boulevard, where boutiques and galleries, as well as outdoor cafes and world-class restaurants beckon. In downtown, a larger-than-life discovery museum provides perfect rainy day activities. But it's the warm-weather and outdoor fun that make Fort Lauderdale a perfect family destination, with kayaking adventures, water sports, hiking in state parks, and fishing excursions.
