Hollywood is a city located in Broward County between Fort Lauderdale and Hallandale. Hollywood is the twelfth largest city in all of Florida, rapidly growing in the 1950s and 1960s and now home to an estimated 6 million plus people.
The city was originally founded by Joseph W. Young in 1925. Young’s dream was to build a city highlighting the art of motion picture on the East Coast and thus he named it Hollywood after the iconic Hollywood, California. Young proceeded to purchase thousands of acres of land and called the city “Hollywood by the Sea” to distinguish it from his other real estate venture, “Hollywood in the Hills”, in New York.
The city is filled with roughly 60 parks, seven golf courses, and beautiful white sand beaches that run for miles.
The famous Hollywood Beach boardwalk extends about 2.5 miles along the Atlantic Ocean. Public trolleys run through the day and there are countless restaurants, hotels, a theatre, children’s playground, ice cream parlors, bicycle rental shops, souvenir stores, and many other attractions. The boardwalk is lively, offering outdoor seating at most restaurants so you can enjoy the seabreeze. Many people enjoy the scenery going for walks, jogs, biking, and rollerblading. In the evenings off of Johnson Street live music and dancing is popular.
Young Circle is another exciting area with a Food Truck Takeover occurring every Monday with dozens of local food trucks serving a variety of cuisines including Cuban, Venezuelan, Mediterranean, Mexican, Jamaican, Peruvian foods, barbecue, burgers, gourmet grilled cheese, and of course dessert trucks.
