Welcome to Hollywood, Florida
Along the Hollywood Broadwalk
Named one of America's top ten nostalgic promenades by USA Today, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, featuring a bricklined pedestrian promenade that combines dramatic coastal views of award-winning Blue Wave beaches with the nostalgic
feel of a Main Street thoroughfare.
Hollywood Beach features 6 miles of Blue Wave Certified Beaches. This cool tropical setting has something for everyone. The Hollywood Beach Broadwalk offers non-stop fun for kids of all ages! Enjoy the sand and the ocean, or a variety of activities such as
bike riding, rollerblading, kayaking, volleyball, windsurfing, jogging, jet skiing, and more. Hollywood's oceanfront Broadwalk offers miles of car-free enjoyment. Walkers, runners, bicyclists and rollerbladers set their own pace on this path, which is bordered
by six miles of Hollywood's famous coastline, boutique hotels, charming shops, cafés and places to eat facing the ocean.
Gear up for a game of sand volleyball or beachfront paddleball. Clear your head with group yoga or Tai Chi classes. When the sun sets, cool tropical sounds can be heard at the outdoor Beach Theater that hosts a full season of live musical performances, festivals
and cultural events.
Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savouring the charming character of this truly unique setting. Comfortable sun beds and cabanas are available for rent, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. The fresh ocean air
will carry you into a state of pure bliss.
Hollywood is also a haven for ecotourism. From canoe trips through pristine West Lake Park, a 1,500-acre nature preserve, to extreme watersports, Hollywood has something to keep every body in motion.

Satisfy your taste for excitement in Historic Downtown.
Characterized by quaint sidewalk cafés, bricklined walks and six blocks of unique boutiques, shops, art galleries and dozens of excellent restaurants along Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street, the pedestrian-friendly environment is the perfect place to
enjoy South Florida. Just minutes from the beach, the downtown district is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the backdrop for year-round festivals, street markets and entertainment.
For an entire day of shopping, take a stroll down the brick-paved walkways of the booming arts, entertainment, and dining district that is Downtown Hollywood. A combination of small-town ambiance in an art-deco setting, Downtown offers a blend of treasures
and one-of-a-kind finds. People marvel at the wide variety of collectables, gifts, accessories, and contemporary findings in the quaint shops. In the heart of Downtown is the trendy Harrison Art and Design District, which has an abundance of world class art
galleries, eclectic retailers, and modern furnishing stores. All this makes downtown one of the densest collections of attractions in the Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood area.
Feed your hunger for the arts at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. Here, modern art exhibitions and progressive dance and musical performances reflect Hollywood's devotion to the creative spirit.
If it's nightlife you crave, nobody does it better. Get a taste of South Florida's international music and culture that include live jazz, blues, rock, Latin and R&B.
