Hollywood Beach makes for the quintessential vacation destination for its easily rental beach houses, oh, and not just any beach houses, but ones that look like they have been pulled straight out of a George Clooney film!
Finally convinced that Hollywood Beach truly is the place to go for vacation? Then your next step will be to delve into a hotel search or use a hotel finder website to help you find your dream home for a few days! Booking hotels can be a daunting task simply because you will be spoilt for choice. So let me give you an easy breakdown of how to go about booking your hotel.
Prioritize. What is important for you? First, break that down. Budget-friendly place? Family friendly place? Honeymoon room? Complete relaxation getaway? Adventurous bag-packing? What is the theme of your trip and then what is the budget you are ready to chip in for this lovely vacation?
Rooms range at Hollywood Beach from 68 $ to 683$ so it honestly just comes down to what’s important for you. A few tips that you should keep in mind before booking your hotel would be to assess if you are vegetarian, how important hygiene is for you, call the hotel after booking if it is a low budget hotel just to make sure that you don’t end up reaching a place that never exists. Easy commute should always be the priority. It should be cost effective for you to be mobile in the area. You can book a cottage for yourself, or just Airbnb with a lovely host or local guide, give a Marriott a chance to treat you like a Queen or simply crash at a student hostel if exploration is all that is on your mind! But always remember to prioritize and know that safety and access to mobility come first because no amazing beach view is good enough if your health does not permit you to enjoy it!
Hollywood Beach is known for its ventures in land sports including options for golf, cycling, running, tennis and water sports including jet skiing, snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, and surfing! Sports just for humans? Oh no, you are really underestimating Hollywood Beach because it also holds a dog racing competition at Hollywood Greyhound Track along with a mini Vegas experience of poker and slot machines! Two famous sports venues are also only a short drive away, them being Miami Dolphins Football, Miami Heat Basketball!
If sports aren’t your cup of tea, would shopping work? You will find roadside shacks to the most sophisticated Bal Harbor shops all in one place.
For the foodies like me, not only will you get all-star American diners as you see in the Simpsons but also an array of exquisite international cuisines namely Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Thai, French, and even Indian, covering all levels of palates and budgets.
And if you are planning a low budget backpacking trip with a couple of apples and a water bottle in your purse, the picturesque vacation homes and beach condos, tropical walkways, jovial faces and eclectic and inspiring Downtown Hollywood will be more than enough to make the trip absolutely worth it!
Did you know that Hollywood beach is called ‘Florida’s best-kept secret’ because it is the only oceanfront broad-walk in the whole of Florida? There are no motor vehicles allowed, to protect the people from traffic, sound and pollution, which is why you have Florida’s awarded ‘Blue Wave Beach’ on one side, beautiful cafes and endless relaxation on the other and your happy self-enjoying the time of your life in the middle! Hollywood Beach is also home to a populated option of luxury hotels such as Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood, Trump Hollywood, and Margaretville Hollywood Beach Resort which allows for not only a sweet vacation destination for a family but a luxurious elite Instagram getaway for the rich and famous!
Another extremely attractive gift of Nature blessed to Hollywood Beach is that it does not harbor regular sand. Its sand bed is made up of quartz crystals and smoothly polished shell fragments. Hence next time you see a golden brown- color beach bed, you know why! This is also the reason Sea turtles dig their nests in the same beach!
After reading all this, beach vacations with extremely attractive vacation rentals and vacation beach houses seem like a boon don’t they?

Lunch starts early at about 12 pm and goes on late till 4 pm. You will find people grabbing an ice-cream in the afternoon as a cultural tradition in the area.
Live music 5 days a week attracts the community around 6 pm. You will also see many street performers entertaining you to the point of no exist. Families join in around 7 pm for drinks and dinner. Nightlife is prevalent with the clubs and bars buzzing from 9 pm straight till 4 am.
If you want the ultimate college student experience, because you either are one or missed out on it when you were young, then grab a lunch in the afternoon, enjoy the sunset at the beach, walk straight into a dinner at 7pm, get a hearty meal, go to a bar, dance your heart out till 4 in the morning, then enjoy the serenity of the beach at 5am, and when the rest of the city is waking up a 6 for a jog, you go straight to bed!
