Fort Lauderdale

The beautiful Ft. Lauderdale Beach looking north along A1A.

For decades, as portrayed in the movie Where the Boys Are, Fort Lauderdale Beach was known primarily as a place where college students came by the thousands to celebrate Spring Break. In the mid 1980s, the City decided to made a concerted effort to shed its image as a mecca for college students by passing a strict ordinance prohibiting public drinking.
