“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” – President Harry S. Truman

This Memorial Day, Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotels and Restaurants pay tribute to the men, women and families of our active and retired military, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We invite you to celebrate them, the freedoms they afforded generations past and those to come, over the long Memorial Day weekend and all the days beyond.
