Majestic Fort Lauderdale Beach
Want to be on vacation year-round?
Fort Lauderdale Beach is the perfect neighborhood for everyone from surfers to celebrities living the high life, water lovers, young families, and anyone else who enjoys spending time outside and living in a fun and active community – all located on the beautiful shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
For many years, Fort Lauderdale Beach was primarily known as a destination for tourists and college kids on spring break. Though it’s still a popular spot for both, in the mid-80s, initiatives were put in place to make the area more family-friendly and many redevelopment projects began. Today, people flock to Fort Lauderdale Beach from all over the world, and it’s become an amazingly vibrant community that many lucky people call home.

Living on Fort Lauderdale Beach

Obviously, the main attraction of living on Fort Lauderdale Beach is that you’re so close to the ocean. For people who love to swim, fish, or do anything else involving the water, being steps away from the Atlantic Ocean is a dream come true. If you’ve ever stayed at a resort that was right by the sand and thought that it would be great to have that as your backyard year-round, Fort Lauderdale Beach is for you.
Though there are some modestly-priced single-family homes, because many are ocean-front properties, the majority of the larger homes and mansions on Fort Lauderdale Beach start in the millions. But for those who like condo living, there are many options in the area as well, including a number of new or pending luxury waterfront developments.
There are several schools in and around Fort Lauderdale Beach, including:
