About Deerfield Beach, Florida

The gorgeous beach in Broward County is a popular destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. 

Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and make the most of the spectacular views of the ocean.

The area was named after the deer that once roamed here, but they've now been replaced by tourists! Book early as it can get quite busy during the summer months.

Thanks to the tropical monsoon climate, the summers are boiling hot—often reaching 80 F—though there’s also the occasional thunderstorm. If you visit in winter, there will be a light winter freeze, but nothing too cold.

When you combine the blue waters and busy beaches with the excellent shopping and dining opportunities, you'll see why so many people fall in love with Deerfield Beach. 

Make it your next vacation destination so you don't miss out.

What to do

What to do in Deerfield Beach? See the deer and hit the beach!

The white sand beach is absolutely gorgeous. It's an award-winning Blue Wave Beach, with lifeguards on-hand just in case. While you're there, try some of the water sports on offer—water skiing, kayaking, surfing and more!

For something a bit slower-paced, try fishing at some of the local hotspots. There are plenty of places to rent equipment, or you can bring your own.

Get a taste of the area's history by visiting the Pioneer House (Kester Cottage)—it'll give you great insight into the town's past.

In the summer, take a sea turtle trail along the beach. There's something magical about it, but be warned: you'll have to get up early.

The town throws events throughout the year—parades, festivals, fun runs, dances and more! Make sure you catch one during your stay.

Head to the Deerfield Beach Arboretum, nicknamed the 'Tree Zoo'. You'll find nine acres of lush green land that’s home to over 200 species of trees and palms from around the world. It's a great idea to spend a peaceful day in this park.
