Located 20 minutes north of Miami, Hollywood is much more than just a famously-named Floridian suburb. This populous city has warm weather all year, beautiful beaches and premium nightlife in an area easily connected to southern Florida’s destinations and Fort Lauderdale to the north. Whether you’re here on a road trip or a family vacation, Hollywood is a delightful place to drop by and visit.
Things to do in Hollywood
If you’re not already staying in an accommodation along the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, stroll down this two-and-a-half mile hub of city activity and spend some bucks at various eateries and vendor stands along the Atlantic Ocean. For a hands-on, athletic experience right in town, make a reservation with Atlantic Adventures, which offers stand up paddle boarding (SUP), kayaking and snorkeling, or head to the unique outdoor museum at Anne Kolb Nature Center—get there at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays during the late summer for a special presentation on baby sea turtles.
Day Trips from Hollywood
Outdoorsy tourists should make the hour-long trek out to Everglades National Park at Florida’s southern tip for an unforgettable look at the nation’s largest wetland. You’ll have to head out somewhat far down State Highway 9336 to catch some healthy swamp activity, but once out on a trail, it’s easy to understand why this ecologically diverse area is a World Heritage Site. Conversely, travel just over an hour north to Jupiter, where you can go scuba diving, take photos of the Jupiter Inlet Light lighthouse and take kids to the Loxahatchee River Environmental Center aquarium in Burt Reynolds Park—a more manicured peek at wildlife.
When searching for a rental in Hollywood, you’ll come across a lot of condominiums in high rises along the Broadwalk and single-story apartments and houses flanked by palm trees. Many of these properties are pet-friendly and come with communal pools. Unlike Miami or West Palm Beach, these rentals are definitely affordable and come with the same sun-kissed vibe.
Transportation in Hollywood
One might end up in Hollywood on a layover from Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL), located about 13 minutes from the city center, or Miami International Airport (MIA) less than 45 minutes from Hollywood. Uber, Lyft and traditional cab companies serve the area; public transit includes the Broward County Transit system and Tri-Rail. You can easily rent a car at the airport to explore the area.
