Fort Lauderdale Has Fun in the Sun in New 101 Days of Summer Campaign

The Venice of America just made it easier to plan your next visit.

Fort Lauderdale, renowned as the Venice of America for its 300+ miles of navigable canals and waterways, has made planning your next vacation there easier with its 101 Days of Summer campaign.

The new tourism campaign from Visit Lauderdale provides a one-stop site for travel planning to Greater Fort Lauderdale’s 31 communities, including a curated list of events and activities taking place between now and Labor Day Weekend. The LGBTQ+ city is renowned for its diverse and inclusive scene, welcoming everyone under the sun to come for a visit.

Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding communities are a true multi-hyphenate travel destination with plenty of activities for every budget and itinerary, explains Stacy Ritter, Visit Lauderdale’s president & CEO, and 101 Days of Summer was designed as the perfect way to explore your options.

“We wanted to provide our visitors and locals with a roadmap to relaxation this summer,” Ritter explained. “So, whether it’s sunbathing, boating, fishing, shopping, or exploring our decadent foodie paradise, our list has something for everyone.”

The progressive and forward-thinking community has an average year-round temperature of 77 degrees and plenty of sunshine. It also has 24 miles of pristine beaches divided amongst eight distinct beach communities, promising the perfect experience for every flavor and identity of beachgoers. The area is also a foodies’ paradise, with restaurants to match every taste and budget.
