Wilton Manors is a small, independent city just north of Fort Lauderdale, in Broward County Florida. At just under two square miles, it is the home to approximately 11,500 residents (though noticeably more in the winter!) and is nearly entirely surrounded by two branches of the Middle River. Most of the homes in the city were constructed in the 50s and 60s after the city's founding in 1947. Wilton Manors prides itself on it's inclusive nature and actively supports gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender business and tourism. A recent survey showed that on a percentage basis, it has the second highest concentration of same sex couple residents!
