Our Giants located near our Boston moving headquarters know how brutal New England winters can be. A dose of sunshine is a great cure for many stressors, and Fort Lauderdale has a wonderful climate. As a city with a subtropical rainforest climate, the temperature averages around 65 Fahrenheit or higher all year round and increases in the summertime.

#2: An infinite selection of beaches

Fort Lauderdale is a 12-month beach season city, which is ideal for those who want to relax by the water all year round. Since the beach is such a common part of life in South Florida, you can even pick which one you want to visit based on your lifestyle or mood. You can find family-friendly and dog-friendly beaches, beach camping, nude beaches and other hidden gems throughout the area, like St. George Island.

A trip to Venice might be out of your reach, but you can experience the magic of a traditional gondola ride right in South Florida. Known as the “Venice of America,” you can enjoy all the attractions of Fort Lauderdale from the comfort and pace of a gondola ride. One company known for gondola tours is Las Olas Gondola, and they offer a unique experience for all types of visitors.
