Welcome to Marina Bay Marina Resort

Discover Ft. Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale was a spring break paradise for decades, immortalized in the Connie Francis movie "Where the Boys Are." By the 1980s, the spring breakers got too rowdy and the city government decided it wouldn’t put up with their shenanigans even if they brought tourism revenue to Fort Lauderdale. It was at that time that the city chose to invest in the fine arts, high-end shopping, and similarly luxurious lodging and entertainment in order to attract another kind of tourist entirely. Their plan worked: luxury tourists brought in $800 million during the spring months of 2004, compared to $110 million with the spring break crowd of 1984.

Within a few short years, Fort Lauderdale successfully changed its reputation from "cultural wasteland" to "hot place to see and be seen." Today, the city hosts millions of domestic and foreign tourists from various social classes. Downtown Fort Lauderdale, featuring Riverwalk and Las Olas Boulevard, is ground zero for "seeing and being seen."
