Hollywood, Florida, is a long way off from its West Coast counterpart, but it's still a place where you can vacation in style. Sandwiched between the larger cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale, the "Diamond of the Gold Coast" is famous for its long sandy beaches and laid-back attitude. Book a hotel near Hollywood and sip a cocktail on a pristine beach overlooking the Atlantic.
Take a flight to Miami and explore Hollywood—it's only 22 miles from the airport! The seaside city has several world-class beaches, with Dania Beach among the most popular. Here you will find palm trees, sunbeds, and a fishing pier that extends into the sea.
For more on a time-honored tradition in the area, check out the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum. It's less than six miles from downtown, close to Hollywood hotels, and a great trip for fishing enthusiasts of all ages. This is the site of the largest fishing library in the world, and guests can get up-close-and-personal with life-size models of record catches. The Anne Kolb Nature Center is just as impressive. The urban park, which opened in 1996, spans more than 1500 acres of coastal mangrove wetlands; climb up the observation tower for breathtaking views or explore the landscape on a nature trail.
The home to the Fishing Hall of Fame has no shortage of great seafood. Take a stroll along the beach broadwalk (yes, you read that right) and enjoy sampling the catch of the day while looking out over the ocean. After dinner, you can head to Downtown Hollywood for a drink and tour one of the galleries that highlights the thriving arts community.
Now you can experience the best of this coastal city by saving up to $537 when you book hotels in Hollywood and your flights at the same time. If you want to stay nearby and just take a day trip to the area, you can also book a vacation to Fort Lauderdale.
