Economic Engine of Fort Lauderdale Beach

Economic Engine of Fort Lauderdale Beach

Among the myriad factors that comprise Broward’s multi-faceted economic picture, the Fort Lauderdale beach continues to be a lead economic driver. Though other industries have emerged and grown, for decades, the beach has been the heart of our tourism industry and evolved into the most prime real estate in the county.

Hear how it has contributed to upwards of 74,000 jobs in Broward County, $2.8 billion in annual income in Broward County, and $14.2 billion in annual economic impact in Broward County.
