Situated on Florida’s Southeast Coast just south of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood is a sizable yet relaxed beach town with a thriving arts and culture scene, picturesque coastline, and active community.
One of Hollywood’s most distinctive features is the 2.5-mile Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, a paved pathway that runs along the edge of the beach, separating the beach from the shops and restaurants on the other side. Users can walk, jog, bike, or rollerblade along the Broadwalk while taking in the view of one of the most scenic beaches in South Florida.
With more than 50 restaurants and more than 30 shops and boutiques, there is plenty to explore around Hollywood Beach. Grab a burger at Le Tub, a local waterfront favorite, and on weekends, shop at the year-round Yellow Green Farmers Market, which has more than 200 food and beverage stalls.
Beyond the beach, Hollywood has dozens of parks that offer opportunities for outdoor recreation. For families with children, Anne Kolb Nature Center on the Intracoastal Waterway, which features a 68-foot observation tower, 3,500-gallon aquarium, and a hands-on Eco Room, is a must-see.
