The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will be kicking off its 55th year this week and, as always, will bring in thousands of marine enthusiasts and boat lovers to gawk at superyachts, fishing boats, and seafaring vessels of every kind.

It's a time for people to head on out to take a look at all kinds of boats, from small vessels to superyachts. The event is expected to bring in about half a billion dollars for the city. It is also expected to bring in all kinds of folks from all walks of life here in the "Yachting Capital of the World."

With that in mind, here are the five reasons the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is the best.

4. The Food Is Awesome You've got the Pelican Landing at Pier 66 Marina, Grille 66 & Bar, G&B Oyster Bar, Hughe's Culinary, Nanking Asian Grill, and so much more.

Basically, there's no shortage of amazeballs places to get your eatery and drinkery on as you spend the day gawking at yachts and boats. There aren't many better things to do than looking at boats and then chowing down on seafood.
