Florida's Hollywood

Nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Hollywood is a classic Florida beachtown that's enchanted visitors since the 1920s. Hollywood Beach features a one-of-a-kind oceanfront promenade called the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk that stretches nearly two and a half miles along the Atlantic. Named one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks by USA Today and Travel + Leisure magazine, this brick-paved thoroughfare is a haven for joggers, bicyclists, roller-bladers and all who prefer to take in the action from the comfort of one of the countless eateries and cafes along the way. The easy ocean access and village-like feel make this a can't miss destination with numerous highly-rated restaurants, small inns and hotels right on the Broadwalk. Family dining becomes stress-free, as Moms and Dads kick back to enjoy a seaside meal while their little ones entertain themselves in the sand just steps away. Two Broadwalk parks attract kids of all ages to play paddleball at the historic Garfield Street courts or cool off in the whimsical dolphin play fountain. Ground was recently broken on the first Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville Beach Resort on a six acre site on the Broadwalk. This island-themed family-friendly resort will feature shops, restaurants and an immense outdoor entertainment area. Nearby Downtown Hollywood is characterized by quaint sidewalk cafés, unique boutiques, shops, art galleries and dozens of bars and restaurants. At its center is the spectacular ArtsPark, a lush 10-acre urban park boasting broad paved promenades for strolling or jogging, a children’s play area with an interactive fountain, and a state-of-the-art amphitheater that hosts free cultural events all year-round. The venue is home to daily glass-blowing demonstrations, a weekly Funtastic Fridays event for kids, the monthly Full Moon Drum Circle, and the award-winning ArtsPark Live concert series. To really get the feel of Downtown Hollywood, stroll through its historic arts and entertainment district during Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk from 7 to 10 p.m. on the third Saturday of every month, and enjoy art exhibits, live painting, entertainment and refreshments at art galleries and participating businesses. Dance to live music, dine with friends, make some new ones and check out the district’s bars, boutiques and businesses. Join the fun and be part of this artful celebration of Downtown Hollywood. A convenient Trolley service runs Wednesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. offering a nostalgic way to get to and from the best sites on the beach and downtown.
