America's Best Beach Boardwalks
Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, Hollywood, FL
Begun in 1925, the glamorous 2.5-mile-long terracotta-colored path was always intended to be a broad walk, wide and sweeping for promenading. Today, 98 small independent hotels border the pure white sand of adjacent Hollywood Beach; some, like the Art Deco Walkabout Beach Resort, are painted turquoise to match the sea.
Don’t Miss: The Sunday organic farmers’ markets, which sell smoothies made from exotic fruits like locally grown mamey sapote (which tastes like maraschino cherries). Then hire bikes at Sun & Fun Cycles and ramble from the north end of the Broadwalk to John U. Lloyd Beach State Park for a glimpse of nature in Old Florida.
