Florida is a wonderful place to live, and own a business. I’d like to start a small series on the cities in Florida that we serve. Introducing Ft. Lauderdale debt collectors. A thorough understanding of what makes a city tick, helps us to be more effective serving our clients, in those cities. It also helps us to better relate to, and work with, debtors from whom we are trying to collect.
Ft. Lauderdale is one of my favorite towns, so without further pre-amble..
Welcome to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida home to beauty, tourism, and culture! Nearly 185,000 people reside in Ft. Lauderdale many of which include businessmen, students, and retirees. A census in 2000 found that of 68,400 households, 19.6% of families had children under the age of 18 living with them, 32% were married couples living together, 11.5% were single female householders, and nearly 52% were non-family units.
If you enjoy the water and boating, Ft. Lauderdale is the place for you. This fantastic city is known for its beautiful beaches and boat shows, and is home to the world’s largest boat show, “Fort Lauderdale’s International Boat Show.” Ft. Lauderdale is known for its extensive canals which average over 165 miles worth of waterways within the city limits. Due to its beautiful beaches, extensive business ties, and diverse culture, and festivals, this city has raked in over 1.5 billion dollars in 2013 according to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau! Not only that, it is the home to the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
There is a lot to do during the day, but the nightlife is really what attracts the attention of many visitors. The beach is filled with nightclubs, bars, and restaurants. The combination of beach, boating, and exciting nightlife make Fort Lauderdale one of the nation’s biggest tourist spots. And don’t worry, if nightlife isn’t your thing there are plenty of museums, sports events, and conventions that take place in Ft. Lauderdale all of the time! It is one of the best places in Florida to own and run a business due to the high volume of traffic!
Ft. Lauderdale is a place of business, relaxation, and fun all mashed into one city in the beautiful state of Florida. Whether you be looking for vacation, business, or a place to retire – Ft. Lauderdale certainly has something to offer!
