Fort Lauderdale, FL Real Estate History

The history of Fort Lauderdale is named after a fort that was built during the Second Seminole War. The city did not actually become established until fifty years later. There were actually three Fort Lauderdale forts that were built in the area. They derived their name from Major William Lauderdale, the commander of the soldiers in this area. The city of Fort Lauderdale was found adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean and features seven miles of beaches.

The climate of Fort Lauderdale is truly tropical. The summers are hot and humid and winters are warm and dry. Although, there are cold fronts that come through from November to March. However, the average temperature for each month is around 74 degrees Fahrenheit. The majority of the year is warm and can be likened to the Caribbean tropics.

The economy of Fort Lauderdale is highly dependent on tourism. The city was a very popular spring break destination from the 40s to the 80s, but is heavily reliant on cruise ships and nautical recreation today. Instead of attracting the college crowd, the city attracts a more affluent tourist today.
