For 56 years, the city known as the Venice of America has played host to the largest in-water boat show in the world, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), which takes place this year from November 3-7 in the Yachting Capital of the World.
Known simply as “FLIBS” to those who know it best, the show attracts a global audience of 100,000 yachting and boating enthusiasts over five days. More than 1,000 exhibitors from 30 countries showcase $4 billion worth of superyachts, boats of all types and yacht “toys” such as personal submarines, water-propelled jet packs and whatever is the latest addition to yachting fun. Beyond the amazing display of 1,500 watercraft, the show’s jaw-dropping display of exotic autos delights crowds of car aficionados every year.
You don’t have to be solely into yachts to enjoy this fabulous lifestyle event. In addition to being the event where yacht buyers and sellers converge each year to see what’s new, the show also delivers plenty of fun, including its popular floating cocktail lounges, live music, fishing and boating seminars for adults and children of all ages, live water sports demonstrations and marine-themed art and jewelry, all displayed across more than 3 million square feet of exhibit space.
Fort Lauderdale is a great place to visit, with lots to do on water and on land. While famous for its beaches, the city is home to a world-class museum and performing arts center, fashion-forward shopping and an outstanding selection of luxury hotels, progressive dining and nightlife.
With 165 miles of navigable inland waterways, one of the most popular things to do is get out on the water and enjoy everything this special city has to offer. There are many convenient options, including private and group charters and boat rentals. While on the water, you can stop for cocktails or a bite to eat at one of the many waterfront restaurants and bars or take a “cruise to nowhere” along canals lined with mansions and yachts.
Whether it’s touring exclusive waterfront neighborhoods, booking an offshore or inshore fishing trip, staying fit with a never-ending choice of watersports such as diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking in the Everglades, or simply relaxing at one of the many world-class spas, the city of Fort Lauderdale offers many wonderful choices.
