For one of the most adventurous Fort Lauderdale attractions, look no further than the airboat tours.

Some boat tours will take you through areas where you can view animals in their natural habitat. For an adventure you can't find anywhere else in America, take a swamp tour and discover the world from the only vantage point possible-above it.
For a true southern adventure, take the Jungle Queen Riverboat tour around the outskirts of the city and see the town from a totally different point of view. This old style paddle boat cruises through the water slowly and allows guests to take in the wonderful sites and sounds of the city from the water.

This popular Fort Lauderdale attraction is a great way to enjoy the city and get away from it all at the same time.
