What’s not to love about the “Yachting Capital of the World"? Fort Lauderdale is the perfect location for the world’s largest in-water International boat show. Bahia Mar Resort and Yachting Center will host the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show once again, as they have for several years.

The weather is perfect year-round; even in November you will experience temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s. In addition, the eating joints and nightlife are top of the line! Needless to say, your heart and stomach will be fully content. Plus, after the close of the Boat Show, you can visit the shops or the beach before you hit the hay.
