Hollywood - Florida, Real Estate
 
 


 

A city with more than 135,000 residents, Hollywood is nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami on Florida Southeast coast. 

Founder Joseph Wesley Young had a dream of transforming the undeveloped land of tomato farms, marshes and pine forests into a modern city.  Joseph Young built Hollywood Boulevard, lined with Royal palms and ornamental lights, and the Hollywood Boardwalk, a popular venue for tourists and locals alike, which was patterned after Atlantic City's promenade. 

Today, Downtown Hollywood sets the scene with its brick-lined sidewalks and great night atmosphere with its stores, cafes, bars and restaurant. outdoor music is a typical feature.  

The last five years have seen a transformation of the Hollywood Downtown area in one of the most exciting  areas in South Florida. Hollywood 's Young Circle has been completely redone and its new friendly face is the focus of city entertainment areas.  Around it, Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street are the main arteries where dozens of bistros, restaurants, bars are a magnet for residents of North Miami Beach, Aventura, and Hallandale Beach. On wonderful Florida nights, you can hardly find a seat at the Hollywood Beach bistros, bars and nightclubs, while strolling between outdoors seating, and Hollywood's music, jazz, blues, merengue is floating all over the place.  

Other Hollywood popular local venues include the Seminole Indian Reservation, the Topeekeegee Yugnee (TY) Park with its wonderful landscape, hosts many family's barbecues and picnics.
