The city of Fort Lauderdale is a famous tourist location attracting more than 10 million visitors each and every year. The city has even been referred to as the "Venice of America," because it features an intricate network of canals. The city of Fort Lauderdale is home to a huge yachting center.

In 2006, the city of Fort Lauderdale and its surrounding area had more than 120 nightclubs and over 4,000 restaurants.

The city derived its name after a series of forts constructed by the United States in the Second Seminole War. The forts took their name from Major William Lauderdale. He was a commander of the detachment of soldiers who constructed the first fort. The development of the city did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned to end the conflict. At first, 3 forts called "Fort Lauderdale," were constructed. The first one was at the fork of the New River. The 2nd fort was located at Tarpon Bend on the New River between the Rio Vista and the Colee Hammock neighborhoods. The 3rd fort was built near the Bahia Mar Marina.

The first inhabitants within the area were the Seminole Indians. In the 2nd Seminole War, New River Fort was built during 1838, at the site of the existing Fort Lauderdale. In the year 1893, the first trading post was built in a home which served also as the bank, town hall and the first post office. During 1911, Fort Lauderdale was officially incorporated as a township.
