Because of its location it is very popular with tourists and when World War Two started the city was a major US base. Ideally located, the port of Fort Lauderdale is very popular as it is close to the Bahamas and Caribbean therefore many yachts and cruise ships stop off.

Large companies such as American Express and Motorola are located in this growing city. As the city is a popular tourist area most people flock to the beaches and take in tours of the Everglades.
