When you're ready to head to a beach destination from Houston, TX, put Fort Lauderdale at the top of your beach travel list. In this resort town, visitors can enjoy the sand and sun without the steep accommodation, shopping and food costs found in the other neighboring cities.
Considered to have some of the best shores in Florida, Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America thanks to its waterways and canals. You'll have the opportunity to shop on Las Olas Boulevard, explore the wildlife at the Sawgrass Recreation Park, and hit the beach for a dip in the ocean. River cruises are a great way to explore your surroundings by water, and if art is your thing, you can visit the Museum of Art.
Renting a car in Fort Lauderdale is the most economical mode of transportation. The city is set up like a grid, but the thoroughfares can be confusing to first-time visitors. Just remember, avenues and drives run south-north, and streets and boulevards run east-west. If in doubt, opt for an in-car GPS system.
A direct flight from George Bush International Airport (IAH) to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) takes a little less than three hours. If making a connection, expect a five hour flight total time and a stop in either Atlanta or New Orleans.
