To the east of the city, Interstate 95 (I-95) provides the major north-south artery. This connects Fort Lauderdale to the centres of Miami to the south and West Palm Beach and Jacksonville to the north. West of the city, Florida's Turnpike provides the main north-south route. It runs to Homestead and the Florida Keys to the south and to the north it runs to Orlando and on to North Florida. Running east to west, the I-595/I-75 connects Fort Lauderdale with Florida's West Coast, including cities such as Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota and Tampa.

AIn the city itself, roads are laid out in a grid. As a general rule, avenues run north-south, while streets and boulevards run east-west. There are many toll roads in the South Florida area but using these is far easier when you opt for our Express Toll Service.

Sixt Tips back to top

Fort Lauderdale is sometimes known as the Venice of America, in reference to its many canals. It is one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in Florida, with many European visitors and a thriving gay scene. The downtown entertainment district runs along Las Olas Boulevard from east to west. To the eastern end of the boulevard, there is around a mile of upscale restaurants and boutiques. Move across the railway lines to the west of the boulevard and you will find an area that caters to a younger crowd and is especially lively at the weekend. There are lots of cool nightclubs and casual restaurants and also the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Wilton Manors is almost a distinct city within Fort Lauderdale. It is a popular LGBT area and has many bars, nightclubs and restaurants enjoyed by this community. The center of the area is Wilton Drive, around NE 26 Street, two miles north of the downtown area. Beaches are undoubtedly a major attraction of the city and they are easily accessed when you choose car rental in Fort Lauderdale. You will find parking just to the south of Las Olas Blvd and more beneath Las Olas Blvd Bridge.

Fort Lauderdale Beach, also known as The Strip, is one of the city's most popular destinations. You will find a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants and hotels right beside the beach. This helps to create a lively but laid-back atmosphere. Las Olas Blvd is a great place in the Downtown area to take a stroll, with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Old Fort Lauderdale Village & Museum gives a great look into the past of the city. Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop is a huge flea market and the ideal place to find a bargain. It also has the largest drive-in movie complex in the US, with 13 screens.
