I really like the Hollywood Beach. There’s a boardwalk (but they call it a broadwalk) and tons of things to do. The beach here is much wider and has tons more sand than up in Fort Lauderdale.
I love the ocean. I love the beach. It’s January and the water is WARM! My grandma says it is something called a Gulf Stream and it brings up the warm water from the Caribbean… and this is why the water here is warm all year long. It’s also why we come here in the fall and winter months. I mean, hey, if you’re coming to Florida you have to swim in the ocean, right?! Why go to a beach where it’s too cold. That’s kind of dumb.
This beach has a half shell amphitheater where they have live music every night – and it’s free! Lots of really good places to eat. We’ve had everything from pizza to gyros.
This was our first trip to Hollywood Beach. I give it two thumbs up. Prior to this visit, the only thing I’d heard about was some big old hotel here that was supposed to be haunted. My grandma and some lady we met on a previous trip were talking about it. Something about Al Capone (a real gangster) and all kinds of crazy stuff. So, when she said we were going to Hollywood I wasn’t sure if we were going to California or to that crazy haunted hotel. Ha Ha Ha. (BTW the hotel thing is real, you can Google it.)
Hollywood Beach: Awesome
Hollywood Broadwalk: Awesome
Will I Be Back? YES, definitely
