1Once known strictly as a Tourism-Based Economy, the city of Fort Lauderdale has grown and now supports a variety of different industries, including High Technology, Film and Television Production, Marine, Manufacturing, Finance and Insurance, Real Estate, and Avionics/Aerospace.

The name of "Fort Lauderdale" was derived from a series of actual Forts that were built by the United States during the Second Seminole 1War. The Forts took their name from Major  William Lauderdale, who was the Commander of the detachment of soldiers who built the first fort.  However, development of the city did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned at the end of the conflict. The City was Named "Fort Lauderdale" and was incorporated on March 27, 1911.

Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America" for its extensive system of Waterways, including the New River, Intracoastal Waterway and a large number of Deep Canals.

1The Highly Desirable Community of "Coral Isles" of Fort Lauderdale is located on one of the many Finger Canals on the Intracoastal Waterway.  Here you will find Elegant Mediterranean architecture with extensive loggias/balconies. An aray of Mega Mansions with all the luxury a Buyer would expect and plenty of room to dock your Mega Yacht.  Home Owners of this Community enjoy the daily parade of Yachts and the Spectacular Skyline at night.  Homes in this Community range anywhere from 10 Million to well over 15 million dollars. Homeowners can expect to pay Annual Real Estate Taxes ranging anywhere from $50,000 to well over $100,000. 1 1
