Safe Harbor Lauderdale Marine Center

Fort Lauderdale, Florida AKA  "Venice of America"  nickname originated in the early 20th century due to the city's extensive system of canals, which were reminiscent of the famous canals in Venice, Italy.

Fort Lauderdale's network of waterways, including the Intracoastal Waterway and numerous canals that run through residential neighborhoods, contributed to its comparison to Venice.
