   As November rolls in and America's northern states began to think about old man winter, southern Florida's beachside never misses a beat. Here in Fort Lauderdale a beachfront promenade stretches out beside the Atlantic Ocean for seven miles. Two miles of continuous public beaches, including South Beach picnic area and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, are guarded year around with a fully staffed lifeguard crew and towers spaced every 200 to 400 yards.
   For decades Fort Lauderdale has tried to shed its reputation as a college spring break destination. City ordinances now prohibit public drinking and redevelopment plans have totally changed the beachfront landscape. A total renovation included a redesigned highway (A1A), landscaped medians, expanded parking lots, bicycle lanes, brick paving, and a dramatic, two mile long serpentine wall. Part of the beachfront promenade, the Wave-Wall has become the iconic landmark of Fort Lauderdale Beach.
   Along with a natural enjoyment of sun, relaxation and the enchanting turquoise waters, beachgoers may also experience a line of trendy shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and clubs. Beachside recreation includes beach volleyball, wind surfing, jet skiing, rollerblading and leisurely biking. Offshore fishing, snorkeling, boating and scuba diving venues ensure Fort Lauderdale visitors have a chance to see what the Atlantic has to offer.
