Fort Lauderdale, FL

Travel to the Greater Fort Lauderdale area just once, and you’ll soon understand what all the fuss is about. Residents aren’t lying when they talk about the area’s high quality of life. You’ll want to spend all your free time outside, as the average temperature is 76 degrees. And trust us, it won’t be hard to fill that time, since you’ll have access to miles of beaches and waterways where you can boat and paddleboard, hundreds of parks, golf courses, gardens, etc. When you’re ready to relax, you can head back to a home that suits you and your lifestyle. In fact, folks here can choose from downtown housing options, quaint suburban homes, LGBT-friendly neighborhoods, waterfront condos and ranches. And when it comes to education and business here, both are thriving. Greater Fort Lauderdale is home to 35 colleges and universities and 200 corporate, regional and international headquarters.
