I just got back from Ft. Lauderdale a week ago. It's an awesome beach and traffic builds up in the area especially on A1A, where the beach is located so if possible, try to find a place that is walking distance or you will have to pay for parking. Fort Lauderdale is more geared for the younger crowd although there are people of all ages there. I booked my trip thru Expedia. Depending how picky you are with hotels, if you're not too picky, the Sea Club Resort has an excellent location (the beach is right across the street), a nice pool, a restaurant/bar called the deck, it's right on the strip, free parking, free Wi-Fi (it's a bit slow tho). If you chose not to have a rental car, there's a tolley that you can catch on the strip for a minimal cost and transportation to & from the airport for a fee (you can call the hotel to find out the particulars). The Sea Club Resort needs updating, it's one of the oldest hotels there but the price is right, clean enough and the location is great! Google it to see the pics and if you have google earth you'll see how great the location is for only a fraction of the price of all the other fancy hotels around it. There's night life south of the hotel on the strip or you can always go to Las Olas(sp?) which is very close by. There's a strip mall on the south end of the strip with night life, restaurants, bars, stores etc. Also, South Beach Miami is only about a 45-60 min ride away(you need a rental car if you want to do that), I spent the day there, there's definitely alot of action there. Good luck!

Fort Lauderdale is one of the cleanest beaches around. I go there often and it is usually clean. Fort Lauderdale Beach is also a very large beach. You have about 1000 feet of beach between the dunes and the water. Other areas around have much less beach space.
Certainly not the only time.

It's a decent beach.
