You are Ft. Laurderdale, Florida, located on the Eastern coast of Southern Florida, not far from Miami. From software technology to international trade, from financial services to tourism, Fort Lauderdale enjoys a robust, diversified business climate. In recent years, Broward County (metropolitan Fort Lauderdale) has substantially outpaced the national economic growth rate, while the countys population has climbed to nearly 1.7 million. Centrally located Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is the fastest-growing passenger hub in the nation, and was the fastest recovering airport hub since 9/11. In addition, the bustling Port Everglades is attracting new cruise ships and cargo lines. Contemporary high-rise condominium residences and hospitality properties are transforming downtown and the central beach area of Fort Lauderdale, and adding a new dimension to the regions year-round appeal to leisure and business travelers.
I bet the warmth and sunshine of being in Florida appeals to you, although politically, you are somewhat different from most Floridians. That's why I stuck you here, where the attitudes of people are more liberal and diversified from the norm, like yours are. Ft. Lauderdale is full of interesting people and activities, including lots of culture that you would probably throw yourself right into. You are open-minded and appreciate the finer things in life. You like variety and fun, and you don't need to be in a typical big city to have it. Crowds may not be your thing...as long as the city has things to do and doesn't shut down at 10pm, you're fine. And since you like nature, you'd probably be happy at the beach, near the Everglades, or canoeing down a river. Good deal.
