With its award-winning "Blue Wave Beaches," nature activities and proximity to Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, Dania Beach is an appealing vacation spot. It's also the home of the world-famous Dania Jai Alai in the center of the city's dining and entertainment district. Are you into antiques? Then Dania Beach is perfect for you and be sure to visit the shops along Federal Highway (U.S. 1), both north and south of Dania Beach Boulevard. Afterward, stop for some cool refreshment at Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant on South Federal Highway for some of the best homemade ice cream you ever will taste. (Particular favorites: anything with chocolate chips in it).
