Hallandale in southern Florida draws a heavy tourist crowd from Quebec and the Northeastern United States, with large numbers choosing to retire in this beach town. The city, sometimes referred to as the “southernmost Canadian City,” is also known for its racing tracks and casinos. With numerous sporting activities and entertainment options year round, Hallandale is a popular vacation destination offering a wide range of recreation.
Hallandale Beach is home to two of South Florida’s premiere race tracks. Gulf Stream Park features thoroughbred horse racing, while Mardi Gras Casino is a greyhound racing track where the World Classic is held. Both venues also serve as casinos, with hundreds of slot machines, table games and evening entertainment. Nightlife in Hallandale takes all forms, from ballroom dancing to rock and roll concerts. Shopping options are just as diverse in Hallandale, among the shopping centers, boutiques and malls located throughout the city. Sporting activities range from tennis, golf, swimming, boating to saltwater fishing. Head to the beach and its parks for public athletic facilities set against lush tropical scenery. Oreste Blake Johnson Park is great for people of all ages, with its fitness gym, computer lab and Teen Zone program. Golden Isles Park is great for families with kids or pets, with their playground, walking trails and dog park. For a bit of town history, Hallandale boasts four Heritage sites and one historic site. The Curci House, a historic Hallandale Beach home, is one that has withstood the test of time and the Great Hurricane of 1926. The Historic Hallandale Schoolhouse, the oldest building in Broward County, was rebuilt by the community after the original was destroyed in 1910. The labor of love serves a landmark in the city’s evolution.
Just north of Hallandale, tourists will come across neighborhood familiar on both coasts: Hollywood. But unlike the one in California, Hollywood in Florida is known for its terrific boardwalk, 60-plus parks and miles-long, sandy beaches. Visitors will find countless restaurants and attractions lining the boardwalk, from a theater to ice cream parlours to a farmer’s market. Hollywood, or Hallandale Beach, is situated halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, both superb day trip destinations. Fort Lauderdale, popular among snowbirds and spring breakers, has a vivid arts and entertainments district, hip nightlife and a dynamic sports scene. Check out Las Olas Boulevard, considered South Florida’s most architecturally unique and eclectic shopping and dining district. Or stroll along the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District to find numerous museums, performance venues and historical centers. Like Fort Lauderdale, Miami is of a major hub of arts, culture and entertainment. This seaport city is known for its Calle Ocho, or Little Havana, and for being the cruise capital of the world. Don’t forget the barrier islands that are just waiting to be explored off the coast of Miami, or the Florida Everglades, the largest remaining subtropical wilderness in the country.
Hallandale accommodations range from budget inns to resort stays. Inns, motels and room rentals fall within the end of affordable lodgings. Mid-range options span the range from modern hotels to beachfront resorts. There are also plenty of high-end options, from fancy hotels overlooking the ocean to sleek resorts offering full service and amenities.
