Things to Do

Broward College is located in the heart of sunny South Florida. We’re just minutes away from 20-plus miles of stunning beaches to the east, with plenty of water-based sports to keep your weekends busy, like windsurfing, fishing, parasailing, canoeing, snorkeling and more. To the west is a vital ecosystem of wetlands that make up the Florida Everglades, which is home to an array of wild native and exotic animal species.
Broward County is where you’ll find the thought-provoking Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale and the world’s largest butterfly garden at Tradewinds Park. The region also features hundreds of golf courses, tennis and basketball courts, baseball and softball diamonds and swimming pools. For more info, visit Florida’s tourism website
