New to Town? How to Settle Into Your New Fort Lauderdale Home
With its sunny disposition and welcoming community, Fort Lauderdale makes it easy to feel at home whether you’ve lived here for three weeks or 30 years. However, as pleasant as the city’s warm weather and white sand beaches may be, they won’t help newcomers when it comes to finding a great hair salon, a trusty mechanic, or other local services after moving to Fort Lauderdale and surrounding towns.
That’s where this guide comes in. If you’ve recently purchased a home in Fort Lauderdale, these resources courtesy of Eileen Kedersha will help you knock out your new-to-town to-do list so you can start enjoying all that sunny Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Give me a call for any special information requests, I will be happy to discuss your questions.

Fort Lauderdale Cruising
Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America. It is truly a waterfront paradise. As you explore the cities many canals you begin to realize the unique status it holds. To see the center of Greater Fort Lauderdale from an completely new perspective, including the fabulous mansions and mega-yachts of Millionaires’ Row, cruise the New River around Tarpon Bend on one of the charted cruises available. The handsome marinas of the Intracoastal Waterway are in full view and give boaters stunning views in all directions.
If you follow the water west, the meandering Middle River gives you the chance to take in the area at your own pace using perhaps a kayak or on a paddleboard. You can take your pick of scenic waters to explore.
If you want to explore at a faster pace rent a jet ski and power your way around the waterways to find your own favorite spot.
If you would like to dine on the water front Fort Lauderdale most assuredly can accommodate you wishes.
