North Lauderdale

The State of Florida is a state in the southeastern United States. Florida is situated mostly on a large peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. It extends to the northwest into a panhandle, extending along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Florida's nickname is the Sunshine State but severe weather is a common occurrence in the state. It is bordered on the north by the states of Georgia and Alabama, and on the west, at the end of the panhandle, by Alabama.
North Lauderdale is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. The population was 32,264 at the 2000 census. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 34,403. 42,262. 
North Lauderdale wasn’t always at the center of things. At its creation in 1963, it was a new frontier literally and figuratively. At that time, it was largely farmland on the western edge of development in Broward County. Recognizing a rare opportunity to work with a blank slate, famed architect Morris Lapidus turned his attention to planning a city that would become North Lauderdale. Lapidus gained international notoriety for launching the 1950s Miami Beach style resort hotel. His design of the Fontainebleau Resort, the Eden Roc and Americana helped create the style of Miami Beach.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 10.1 square kilometers. In the city the population was spread out with 29.9 percent under the age of 18, 10.7 percent from 18 to 24, 35.2 percent from 25 to 44, 17.4 percent from 45 to 64, and 6.9 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
North Lauderdale is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
