Harbordale is probably the first neighborhood that visitors to Fort Lauderdale typically see. If you’re in town for a cruise departure invariably your overnight hotel is located somewhere along 17th Street near Port Everglades. You might not even notice that there are neighborhoods of homes, apartments, townhomes and condominiums on quiet narrow streets behind the sprawling malls and hotel complexes.
Exclusive enclaves are hidden off Seabreeze Boulevard where 17th Street curves north to meet the beach.
North of 17th Street are some of Fort Lauderdale’s oldest houses with some dating back to the 1940’s. Along Cordova there are many condominiums and apartments as well and most homes in Harbordale have easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway making the area an ideal choice for boaters in almost any price range.
