A single low-budget Hollywood movie changed FORT LAUDERDALE
from a mild-mannered little town that happened to adjoin seven miles
of palm-shaded white sands into a byword for uninhibited beach life.
Following the 1960 teen-exploitation movie Where the Boys Are , Fort
Lauderdale instantly became the number-one Spring Break venue in the
US, drawing hundreds of thousands of frenzied students each year.
By the end of the 1980s, it had imposed enough restrictions on boozing
and wild behavior to put an end to the bacchanal, and Fort Lauderdale
has transformed itself into a thriving pleasure port, catering to
individual yacht-owners and major cruise liners alike, that's also
one of the fastest-growing residential areas in the country.
