Seniors Discover Gold in Hollywood


Hollywood is a city in Broward County, Florida with a population of 140,000+. Founded in 1925, the city grew rapidly in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now the twelfth largest city in Florida. Down the east coast of Florida nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, this classic Florida beach town has attracted senior visitors since the early 1920s.

Hollywood Beach features a one-of-a-kind oceanfront promenade called the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk that stretches nearly two and a half miles along the Atlantic. Named one of America’s Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel & Leisure Magazine, this brick-paved thoroughfare is a haven for joggers, bicyclists, roller-bladers and senior visitors who would prefer to take in the action from the comfort of one of the countless eateries and cafés along the way.Boardwalk

Hollywood highlights include this 2.5 mile paved walking, jogging and biking path with eco-friendly lighting, 7 miles of beach and 10 consecutive years as a Blue Wave Certified Clean Beach by the Clean Beaches Council. That award means a lot of those of us who enjoy spending quality time on a sandy and clean beach.
