Fort Lauderdale was incorporated on March 27, 1911. The City of Fort Lauderdale is situated on the southeast coast of Florida, centrally located between Miami and Palm Beach.
I remember years ago, the ship I was on, the USS Bainbridge dropped anchor off the coast and we were allowed to mingle with the Spring Breakers on the beach. Times change. These changes to the area have provided an advantageous economic climate for helping the City of Fort Lauderdale establish itself as a world-class international business center and one of the most desirable locations for new, expanding or relocating businesses. Once known strictly as a tourism-based economy, Fort Lauderdale now supports a diverse range of industries, including marine, manufacturing, finance, insurance, real estate, high technology, avionics/aerospace, film and television production.
