About Hollywood

About Hollywood

Hollywood is divided into four main areas – Hollywood Beach, Downtown, Dania and Hallandale Beach. You’ll find most of the action happens around Hollywood Beach, where you can relax, enjoy a stroll in the sunshine or take part in a wide range of activities, from roller blading to watersports.

Summer here is hot and humid, so if you’re planning on sightseeing, winter and spring are the best times to visit. Even in the winter months, temperatures rarely drop below 23 degrees centigrade, with dry, sunny weather on most days.

Hollywood is a great base for a vacation in South Florida, with Miami and Fort Lauderdale just a short drive away. Not only that, all the area’s attractions are within easy driving distance. But there’s plenty to see and do in the city itself, so take some time to explore whilst you’re here.

What to do in Hollywood, Florida

Hollywood Broadwalk is at the heart of the action and it’s where locals and visitors come to people watch or relax in the sun. Rent a bike or roller blades from local rental companies, or just take a stroll along the 2.2-mile path. Along the way, you’ll find plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to keep you entertained and refreshed.

Lovers of art and culture should head downtown where the 1930s Art Deco buildings provide some fantastic photo opportunities. It’s here you’ll find a selection of small art galleries to browse, including the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood.

A day trip to Topeekeegee Yugnee Park is a great family day out, with its outdoor pool, water park and walking trails, as well as camping facilities. Alternatively, head for John U. Lloyd Beach State Park for a cookout on outdoor grills or some kayaking.

Top travel tips for Hollywood, Florida

Renting a car is the easiest (and most affordable) way to get around Hollywood and South Florida, but avoid airport rentals, as these are generally more expensive than other locations.

Stay out of the sea if the flag at the beach lifeguard station is any color other than green or yellow – beaches here are prone to jellyfish and strong rip currents.

You’ll find cuisine from around the world here thanks to a large Greek, Italian and Turkish population. But Middle Eastern food in particular is well worth trying and generally high-quality.

With its long sunny days, sandy beaches and family-friendly attractions, Hollywood makes a great travel destination or base for your South Florida break.
