Port Everglades

Port Everglades is a seaport located in Broward County, Florida, USA. It is located at the mouth of the New River, which connects it to the Atlantic Ocean, and is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. It is also one of the largest container ports in the United States. The port’s deep water harbor provides access to the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico.

The port was first established in 1928 when the Florida East Coast Railway extended its line to the area. The port was originally named Everglades Harbor, but was later changed to Port Everglades in honor of the Seminole Indians who once inhabited the area. Since then, the port has grown in size and importance. Today, it serves as a major hub for international trade, and is home to several major cruise lines.

Port Everglades has played an important role in the history of the United States, particularly during World War II. During the war, the port was a major supply point for Allied forces, and was also used as a staging area for the invasion of Normandy. After the war, the port was used to transport troops and supplies to the Korean War and Vietnam War.

The port is also home to several important historical sites. The Port Everglades Museum is located at the entrance to the port, and features exhibits on the history of the area and the port’s role in World War II. The Fort Lauderdale Historical Society is located nearby, and offers guided tours of the area’s historic sites.

Today, Port Everglades is a major tourist destination, with cruise ships departing from the port on a regular basis. The port is also home to several restaurants, shops, and other attractions. It is an important part of Florida’s economy and culture, and serves as a gateway to the Caribbean and Latin America.
