We stayed in the Holiday Inn, right on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel was a bit outside of the main town, and there are some strange sex shops and tatoo parlours around it. That didn't make much difference to us as we were here for the beach and the heat! It didn't leave us down and we spent the day burning ourselves silly on the beach!
When we first went into downtown Ft.
We had a drink in a few of the bars before settling into Coyote Ugly, which was hilarious to say the least. There was a great atmosphere in there and it was a bit more spacious than other bars. It was just like the bar in the movie of the same name. We also stopped into an Irish pub, where we met some people from Mallow in Co. Cork, who were working in Fort Lauderdale themselves. Lucky $#"@&%s!
I must admit I would recommend Fort Lauderdale to anyone, except perhaps to families with young children (take them to Disney World in Orlando instead!). You can soak up the sun, and then enjoy the night as you please, whether it be in a relaxing atmosphere on the Riverfront, or in the mayhem of the strip!
