Fort Lauderdale is a city in the US state of Florida and the county seat of Broward County. This canal-laced city has come a long way from its past image of a rowdy and party city. Today, as a result of renewal and innovation, the fast-food stands and T-Shops have been replaced by restaurants and up-market stores. But still, the major attractions of the city are its stunning beaches, great swimming, year-round sunshine and near perfect weather. Fort Lauderdale is often dubbed as the ideal weekend getaway destination. While planning your trip to this gorgeous city on a budget, try and visit in the months between June and November, as the hurricane season increases your odds of finding economic airfare to Fort Lauderdale alongside low- cost hotel tariffs.
