Just north of Miami, Florida, is Fort Lauderdale. The population of 182, 437 inhabitants makes Fort Lauderdale one of the larger destinations within the Miami metropolitan area. The stunning year-round weather and proximity to the Atlantic on the east coast have made this medium-sized district a popular tourist destination for Americans and the rest of the world. A combination of cruise ports, hotel resorts, Yacht clubs, and nightclubs have allowed Fort Lauderdale to establish itself as one of the United States' premier party destinations. There are over 36,000 hotel rooms, 100 marinas, and 45,000 yachts, which serve millions of visitors each year. Despite vast volumes of passing trade, the resident population in this part of the Miami metropolitan area remains relatively stable, with the lion's share of people using it for holiday getaways. As a result, much of the local economy relies on tourism, which provides visitors with endless sightseeing tours, nightclubs, and restaurants.

The original inhabitants of the Miami region were Tequesta Native Americans who lived on the land for upwards of two thousand years.

The arrival of Spanish trade ships and explorers in the 16th century led to an unwitting spread of smallpox and flu, which decimated the native population. In the nineteenth century, Miami saw significant conflict between Seminole tribes and settlers, which came to a head with the Second Seminole War in 1836. The response of the United States was to build several forts in the area, one of which was Fort Lauderdale, from which the principal city takes its name. The economic structure experienced a massive boom during the 1920s, followed by a devastating crash. However, much of the town's current provenance relies on the Second World War, when vast amounts of navy and air force bases were built. Many of these bases were later converted into yachting bays, which account for some 45,000 yachts in the local region. Fort Lauderdale is a part of the Gold Coast Region, which includes Miami and West Palm Beach, taken from the stunning, golden sands and beaches that line the coast. 

  • Fort Lauderdale is nicknamed the Venice of America,

    with over 23 miles of beaches stretching across the East Coast.  Tourists can take the opportunity to ride on chartered cruises, ferries and take deep-diving tours of the abundant sea life. Boardwalks, hotels, and nightclubs line the beaches, which allow guests to navigate the morning through the evening during their travels seamlessly.
  • Las Olas Boulevard is perhaps the destination of choice for newcomers who want to experience what Fort Lauderdale has on offer. The palm-tree lined-stretch gladly provides 30 dining experiences, unrivaled shopping centers with 65 boutiques, leading museums, and ten international art galleries. 
  • The iconic Fort Lauderdale Beach Park offers golden sands and sea that are well-maintained throughout the year. Picnic tables, basketball courts, and outdoor grills are set up across the beachfront. Simultaneously, the nearby boardwalks offer a plethora of drinking and dining destinations with jaw-dropping views across the Atlantic coast.

Nightlife in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale was a one-time destination for spring breakers but, in recent years, has reinvented itself as a cosmopolitan destination for more seasoned clientele. In terms of out and out nightlife this city is diminished somewhat by the carnival atmosphere found in neighboring Miami Beach. However, Fort Lauderdale remains a top-level nightlife city with an egalitarian blend of mainstays from its boom in the mid-twentieth century to modern contemporary bars and dining. 

  • Mai Kai Restaurant and Polynesian Show on the North Federal Highway is one of the mainstays that has survived over seventy years of trade. The tiki-culture reigns supreme with Leis, drinks served in coconuts, and tropical decor. Weekend shows start from 6:30 pm, 9:30 pm, and 11:30 pm.
  • On Seabreeze Boulevard is the incomparable Wreck Bar. This nightlife hotspot's interior appears as a sunken galleon ship with aquariums through the portholes and windows. From Wednesday to Saturday, mermaid shows take place through the windows and from the hotel's top. 
  • The Federal Highway is a spot lined with hotels and stunning bars as well as shows. Point Royal, run by celebrity head chef Geoffrey Zakarian from Food Network, is well worth the visit, while Jaxson's Ice Cream has become something of a celebrity in its own right to tourists from all over the world.

SERVPRO of Fort Lauderdale South Provides Round the Clock Fire Restoration Services to Local Residents.

A property fire does not just affect one part of the home. The production of smoke from combusting materials causes significant residual damage and odor. These soilings are at their most prominent close to the source of the fire. However, the pressure generated by hot air can lead to plumes of smoke spreading throughout the home. Some of these residual smoke damages may appear invisible to the naked eye but can still affect indoor air quality. SERVPRO has a team of dedicated customer service staff who can answer your call twenty-four hours a day. Our technicians are experienced with up-to-date training on effectively restoring property from smoke and indoor air-quality damages. The process of transforming a burnt structure to its preloss condition can take time. Our team is proactive in completing tasks to ensure restoration offers maximum efficiency with the homeowner's minimum inconvenience. 

  • Production technicians can quickly rid your home of non-salvageable materials, which can mitigate against indoor air-quality issues. By removing non-salvageable materials from the site, we can focus our efforts on restoration, which increases cost and time efficiency.
  • Our air-filtration devices (AFDs) are state of the art, using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters to remove odor and soot particles as small as 0.3 microns. Technicians can use negative air pressure machines to establish containment in the home and prevent ulterior rooms from being affected. 
  • Controlling odor requires special equipment and training. SERVPRO technicians can use thermal or non-thermal fogging equipment to fumigate a property quickly. Powerful venting box fans can help to encourage air-exchange and remove unpleasant odors.

Burning materials can leave behind an unhealthy environment in your home. Contact SERVPRO of Fort Lauderdale South at (954) 388-8554 for expert restoration.
