Quality of Life

Hollywood offers a hometown atmosphere with a world-class beach in the heart of South Florida.

Whether you are enjoying the sunrise over the ocean or a leisurely kayak trip down a peaceful inland waterway, seek active watersports, fishing, or scuba adventurers in the water, or quality time with family and friends at a local park or downtown, Hollywood has what you are looking for in a coastal community.


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 children’s water playground at Charnow Park, and many other attractions.

Historic Downtown Hollywood is a lively commercial, entertainment, and cultural arts district. Anchored by the ArtsPark at Young Circle, Hollywood Boulevard and its adjoining streets offer dozens of bars, restaurants, and boutique shops. 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.

Enjoy the vibrant arts scene with downtown galleries, a robust public art mural program, and two of Broward County’s major cultural institutions: Cinema Paradiso and The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood.
