Young Professionals

Downtown rules for the young and ready to be social in Fort Lauderdale. Plenty of apartments, condos and townhomes for rent or purchase are a plenty. Astride the living options sit a rich bounty of great restaurants, nice and cheap bars and pubs, theaters, museums, and also several great parks for stretching those legs on the weekends.

Middle River Terrace


Just north of Downtown is Middle River Terrace. A growing neighborhood with slightly more interesting housing options than Downtown. Bungalows, and Mid-Century Modern homes are available for relatively good prices when you’re ready to step up. It’s also filled with boutique shops, cool restaurants and plenty of bars and clubs for getting out.

Sebastian Street Beach


Sebastian Street Beach is the famous “gay beach” in Fort Lauderdale Beach. It is part of a stretch of LGBTQ+ friendly hotels, shops and restaurants and the center of day and night time social. North Beach is a neighborhood poised to become the hottest LGBTQ+ area in the city. Tons of community owned and supportive shops, bars and restaurants mean you can live and thrive to your heart’s content.

Coral Ridge


If being near the beach is important to you then check out Coral Ridge. Just a short walk to the beaches on Barrier Island, the community is filled with great single-family homes and some condo/apartments as well if you’re just getting started on the family journey. If you want to crank up the fancy check out Coral Ridge Country Club Estates. One of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city, it is primarily luxury homes although it has some condos and apartment buildings if you crave being in the golf world but aren’t ready for the posh pad.

Victoria Park


It wouldn’t be Florida if there weren’t great options for retirees. Victoria Park is a wonderful upscale community, near the beach and popular activities like Holiday Park, Parker Playhouse and Birch State Park (Fort Lauderdale’s Central Park). The neighborhood has great walkability to all of these attractions as well as plenty of restaurants, cafes and shopping. Las Olas Isles is another incredible option for empty nesters and retirees. Estates line the waterfront and you have direct access to white sand beaches, year-round community events and complete privacy for those looking to avoid the tourist crowds.
