There's a reason Fort Lauderdale is host to one of the largest boat shows in the world. With over 300 miles of navigable inland waterways, Greater Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America.
A lot of the region's land space is taken up by multimillion dollar waterfront McMansions with 100-foot yachts. The 53rd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show -- taking place Thursday October 25 through Sunday, October 29 -- caters to these folks, of course, but it also offers fun for commoners--dinghy owners included.
In preparation of boat show, we have a list of ten south Florida's places with dockside dining.
