    One of the world's premier gay resort destinations, Fort Lauderdale has been transformed over the past 30 years with a beautifully redeveloped beachfront, the addition of dozens of gay resorts and bars, and a vibrant rejuvenation of its downtown area. The adjacent inland community of Wilton Manors is similarly gay-friendly, with much of metro Fort Lauderdale's top gay bars, plus great shopping and dining. Here's a visual tour of the region.
