The City of Hollywood, Florida is a mature built-out City in southeast Broward County. Nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Hollywood is characterized by its quaint neighborhoods; a booming central business district with arts and entertainment, shopping and dining in the Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency; and, in the Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, Florida's only oceanfront "broadwalk" where no traffic can come between beachgoers and the Atlantic Ocean's calm and inviting tropical waters.
