Music lovers, adventure enthusiasts and sun seekers: Hollywood is calling your name. This southeastern city may be a midway point between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, but it’s a destination spot all on its own. Enjoy the best of the beach and city life with quick, easy access to pristine shorelines and a bustling downtown area. Hollywood’s 2.5 mile-long boardwalk, named one of America’s Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel + Leisure, stretches along the shimmering coast of the Atlantic Ocean and welcomes bicyclists, rollerbladers, joggers and strollers with tons of shops and restaurants to explore. And the historic downtown area is a diverse center for arts, culture and music. With hundreds of concerts, festivals and exhibits each year, you can get your fix of your favorite music genres—including jazz, blues, rock and R&B—all within just a few steps of each other. To top it off, Hollywood’s year-round warm weather (we’re talking 70s to 80s most days) makes it the quintessential Florida city to call home.
