Fort Lauderdale is a popular travel destination thanks to its beautiful beaches and its sunny climate nearly all year long. Temperatures may drop a bit in the winter, but they don't even compare to the frigid Toronto winters.
Snow birds fly to Fort Lauderdale every winter, and some head to the city in the summer to leave for one of the many cruises that use it as a departure point.
Fort Lauderdale has one airport: The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (airport code FLL). The airport is the second most popular in Southern Florida, and flights are available to points all over the world.
Though Toronto may be just under 1,500 miles from Fort Lauderdale, a flight from YYZ to FLL will only take a little over three hours nonstop. If you take a charter flight, you can also cut down on the unnecessary steps of waiting in long lines to check in or going through uncomfortable security checks. You can go from shivering in the cold in the morning to sitting by the beach with a cocktail in your hand by the afternoon.
Not surprisingly, some of the most popular times of the year to fly from YYZ to FLL are during the winter months. If you are planning a trip during this time, just know that you will need to book with some lead time to get the flights and lodging that you want. Otherwise, you could run into delays.
You can save money and open up more travel options by booking in the off season, which is generally from the spring to the fall - particularly if you are planning to set off on a cruise to the Caribbean. You'll be able to snag great deals on flights, as well as lodging, cruise packages, and more. You can then channel those savings into more luxurious accommodations or outings during your trip.
Whatever time of year you plan to visit, you'll have plenty to do in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding area. Start thinking about your trip today!
