Fort Lauderdale is very much a city of waterways, with over 300 miles of natural and artificial waterways slicing through the area. The city started out as a swampy outpost with a fort, which is where the city got its name. In an effort to drain the swamps and create more land for the region’s growing population, a series of canals were created. This incredible engineering effort resulted in immense amount of navigable waterways, earning Fort Lauderdale the nickname “Venice of America.” The abundance of waterways along this coastal region has made Fort Lauderdale a boater’s paradise, with over 42,000 yachts registered in the area. It seems only natural that such a water-centric city would also host one of the world’s busiest ports.
