Fort Lauderdale’s winter weather is outstanding and November to April is the peak season. This is the dry period, which experiences average high temperatures of 24-28°C and average low temperatures of 15-19°C.

The winter season also plays host to a number of popular annual events. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival (March) is a great family event, which includes the grand parade, traditional Irish music and children’s activities. Another event which is more suited to adult visitors is the Wine and Culinary Celebration (April), which showcases spirits, wines and beers from around the world, paired with food from some of South Florida’s leading restaurants.

Fort Lauderdale overview

Thanks to the 1960 movie, Where the Boys Are, this once-quiet city in South Florida became synonymous with Spring Break.  But starting in the 1980s, the city of Fort Lauderdale made efforts to change its image and started to put limits on the mega-party scene, hoping to ensure a family-friendly experience.

Today, the city still draws plenty of college kids in March, but the energy is not quite so wild. In fact, Fort Lauderdale has moved upmarket and Port Everglades is now one of the largest cruise centres in the world. The T-shirt shops and souvenir stores that once overwhelmed the waterfront have given way to trendy shops, nice restaurants, and a two-mile promenade that offers unobstructed pedestrian access along one of the city’s nicest beaches.

The water is what attracts most travellers to book a flight to Fort Lauderdale – the area boasts more than 20 miles (32 km) of powdery sand beaches and 300 miles (482 km) of waterways, making it truly the “Venice of America”.
