The City of Hollywood is a beachfront community located in southeastern Broward County about midway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Founded by Joseph Young in 1925, Hollywood is approximately 30 square miles in size and is Broward's third-largest municipality with a population of roughly 143,000 residents. Hollywood has an average annual high temperature of 83 degrees and low temperature of 68 degrees.
Hollywood is home to more than 60 parks, seven golf courses, seven miles of pristine beaches, and the one-of-a-kind Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, a promenade that stretches nearly 2.5 miles along the Atlantic Ocean. Named one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel + Leisure magazine, this brick-paved thoroughfare hosts pedestrians, joggers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, and millions of others every year. Dozens of eateries and inns line the Broadwalk and the promenade also features the Hollywood Beach Theatre, a childrenâ€™s water playground at Charnow Park, and many other attractions. Hollywood Beach also offers dozens of luxury hotels and condominiums such as the Westin Diplomat and Trump Hollywood, with more planned for the area, including the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort.
Historic Downtown Hollywood is a lively commercial, entertainment and cultural arts district. Highlighted by the Artspark at Young Circle and dozens of bars and restaurants, Downtown Hollywood hosts hundreds of concerts, music festivals, dance exhibitions, shows, art exhibits, and much more. You can enjoy a wide variety of music and entertainment from live jazz, blues, rock, Latin, and R&B, all just a few steps apart.
Hollywood provides a hometown atmosphere with a world class beach in the heart of South Florida.
