Occupational Balance Opportunities
Fort Lauderdale is famous for its beaches, arts, culture and events. From shopping on Las Olas
Boulevard, to gondola rides on the canals, to a historic riverfront. Just two miles north of Port
Everglades, you can experience a landscaped beachfront promenade, with its signature white wave wall
and brick paved path. In the area, enjoy shopping or dining, historical districts, and the mansions and
yachts dotting Millionaires Row. Stop at the Stranahan House, a preserved 1900s home furnished with
antiques of the era. Or "follow the red brick road" of Riverwalk, the landscaped park, to the Arts
and Entertainment District. Trying to stay fit? Dive into the Atlantic, hike into the Everglades or enjoy a
workout and healthy fare at a resort spa.
