Named one of America's top ten nostalgic promenades by USA Today, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, featuring a bricklined pedestrian promenade that combines dramatic coastal views of award-winning Blue Wave beaches with the nostalgic feel of a Main Street thoroughfare.
Hollywood's oceanfront Broadwalk offers miles of car-free enjoyment. Walkers, runners, bicyclists and rollerbladers set their own pace on this path, which is bordered by six miles of Hollywood's famous coastline, boutique hotels, charming shops, cafés and places to eat facing the ocean.
Gear up for a game of sand volleyball or beachfront paddleball. Clear your head with group yoga or Tai Chi classes. When the sun sets, cool tropical sounds can be heard at the outdoor Beach Theater that hosts a full season of live musical performances, festivals and cultural events.
Still, the most popular pastime on the beach is simply savoring the charming character of this truly unique setting. Comfortable sun beds and cabanas are available for rent, so reserve a day for relaxing to the sound of soothing waves. The fresh ocean air will carry you into a state of pure bliss.
