Broward County is located between Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County. These three counties make up the South Florida metropolitan area. The population was 1,748,066 in 2010, making it the second most populated county in Florida. The county seat is Fort Lauderdale. It is also the eighteenth most populous county in the United States. There are 31 cities and municipalities in the county.

Fort Lauderdale FLIWODQGĂ€XV Incorporated on March 27, 1911, the City of Fort Lauderdale is situated on the southeast coast of Florida, centrally located between Miami and Palm Beach. Encompassing more than 33 square

miles with a population of nearly 180,000, Fort Lauderdale is the largest of Broward County’s 31 municipalities and the seventh largest city in Florida. Embraced by the Atlantic Ocean, New River and a myriad of scenic inland waterways, Fort Lauderdale truly lives up to its designation as the “Venice of America.â€? The City of Fort Lauderdale is named for a Second Seminole War IRUWLÂżFDWLRQ EXLOW RQ WKH EDQNV RI New River in 1838.

The City of Boynton Beach, “The Gateway to the Gulf Stream,” is a coastal city located in a rapidly growing area of Palm Beach County. Major Nathan S. Boynton, a native of Michigan who distinguished himself in the Civil War, founded the city, which has a current population of over 68,000. Boynton directed the construction of the Boynton Beach Hotel from 1895 to 1897. He and his workmen, recruited from Michigan, brought their families and settled in the new town of Boynton. With other settlers, the early years of the city were spent building a town, raising vegetables to supply their needs and those of the guests at the Boynton Beach Hotel and shipping pineapples, tomatoes and other cash crops north on Henry Flagler’s new Florida East Coast Railroad. Today, the city attracts a multitude of business and industry and people of all ages and interests.

In the southeast corner of Palm Beach County just north of Boca Raton on the Atlantic seashore, a village by the sea that began as an agricultural community in 1895 has become one of Florida’s most popular destinations for visitors, new families and seasonal residents. The City of Delray Beach encompasses slightly over 16 square miles with a permanent population of nearly 61,000 and growing. Over the past decade, renewal and re-development efforts in Delray Beach have resulted in recognition as the AllAmerica City in 1993 and 2001, the Blue Wave designation for the clean and beautiful beaches and hailed by city planners around the nation as a model for growth management.

Wellington was originally the world’s largest strawberry patch, the Flying Cow Ranch. C. Oliver Wellington bought 18,000 acres of swampland in the 1950s in central Palm Beach County that eventually would be called the Village of Wellington. Wellington began as a planned unit development approved by Palm Beach County in 1972. For many years it functioned as a bedroom community with few shopping centers or restaurants until it was incorporated in December 1995. It is now a thriving village with over 55,584 people. It’s known for large homes, town houses, luxury apartments and horse farms. A large number of residents are equestrian enthusiasts. Wellington is known for its unique shops and upscale restaurants. It features an attractive natural environment and is about 30 minutes from the Palm Beaches.

Miami-Dade County is located in the southeastern part of the state of Florida. As of 2010 U.S. Census, the county had a population of 2,496,435, the most populated county in Florida and the eighthmost populous county in the United States. The county seat is Miami.

Palm Beach is a fully developed community, world-renowned for its extraordinary beauty, quality of life and small-town character.

Miami Seaquarium Zoo Miami www.zoomiami.org The largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida. Owned and operated by the Miami-Dade County Park and Recreation Department, the zoo consists of 740 total acres of which 327 acres are developed.

www.miamiseaquarium.com The Miami Seaquarium is located right in the middle of the tourist area, on the causeway between downtown Miami and Key Biscayne. It’s a fabulous stop where you can witness an outdoor aquarium experience that’s only possible in our tropical climate. Be sure to budget enough time to spend at least half a day there!

Coral Castle is truly a monument to the uniqueness of Miami! This attraction was built by a Latvian-born Miami resident named Ed Leedskalnin as a monument to his lover. After 28 years of effort, he introduced his 1100-ton coral creation to the world. It’s a bit of a trip from downtown, but well worth the time.

Beaches Broward County www.sunny.org/visitors/beaches Warm your toes in the golden sands of Greater Fort Lauderdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 23 miles of sun-kissed beaches - an easy walk from many of our hotels, restaurants and activities. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better way to relax, refresh, renew and reconnect. Enjoy a day of fun in the sun and swimming in the warm Atlantic waters. Greater Fort Lauderdale wants you to enjoy our Blue Wave beaches safely.

Seven Blue Wave Beach Ethics: 1. Leave no trace (what you carry in, carry out) 2. Move your body (walk, run or swim) 3. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tread the dunes (use a walkover or walk-thru) 4. Know your limits (swim, surf and boat safely) 5. You are what you eat (eat healthy seafood) 6. Feed your mind (read a book) 7. Respect the Ocean (riptides, storms) Sea turtle nesting season is underway on Greater Fort Lauderdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beaches -- and these ancient mari-

ners need all the help they can get. From May through October these creatures will return to their home beaches to lay eggs. Visit www.sunny.org/visitors/ beaches/seaturtles/ for Sea Turtle information. Visit www.sunny.org/visitors/ beaches for detailed information on each beach above.

Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. Making a hurricane plan ahead of time and stocking up on vital supplies will go a long way to helping you and your loved ones stay safe in the event of a storm. The beginning of the season is the best time to develop your emergency response plans. Make sure you have supplies to last at least two weeks. For a comprehensive list see your county website below. Create a disaster kit to take with you in case of emergency. The American Red Cross recommends it contain:
