Hollywood Beach Broadwalk feels like it’s nestled in a small, 1950s town. Colorful mom-and-pop restaurants, shops and hotels line one side of the boardwalk while the other offers guests fun in the sand and surf. Walkers, joggers, Rollerbladers and cyclists share the 2 1/2-mile stretch of pathway with arguably the best people-watching. With the addition of Margaritaville Beach Resort, the quality and frequency of music at the Hollywood Bandshell is better than ever.
