    The Art & Culture Center of Hollywood is conveniently located around Young Circle, at 1650 Harrison street in Hollywood. This summer the gallery is presenting Nathan Sawaya, and artist that sculptswith LEGO bricks. It's really really good! And it's only $10 to enter.... You really gotta come see it if you're around, but it's also worth a drive since it's open 7 days a week from 10-5 and 12-5 on weekends, there's lots of restaurants around to enjoy after the gallery viewing.
    The coolest part is the raffle, where you pay $10 but can win a Hugman by Nathan Sawaya!

    Delightful and darling little Mermaid
    4 more images

    Hollywood, FL has some interesting architecture such as mermaids lying in some of the little side streets just off the Boardwalk. You can also see colorful beach huts which house the beach lounge chairs when they are being stored. Even the openings to the beach are sometimes unique archways.
    Look and enjoy.

    Many Modes of Exercise on Boardwalk

    Roller Blade for Exercise
    4 more images

    Exercise is the name of the game and everyone, young and old, seems to enjoy themselves while taking in the Hollywood, Florida "boardwalk". You will find folks walking, jogging, strolling, pushing baby strollers, biking, roller blading, and skating along this sun-filled avenue that borders the beach in Hollywood, Florida. The beach itself has a concrete wall with beautiful arched entrance-ways to the beach. Even the trash containers are attractive ceramic pots that you cannot see the trash within. You will see pretty pastel painted beach huts on the sand. And it would not be a Florida beach without the requisite Beach Volleyball Net. Just an enjoyable time to relax white listening to the Atlantic waves and feeling the warm breeze. Ahhhh.......Paradise.

    Win Some Cash at the Hard Rock Casino!

    Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
    2 more images

    This mega-complex is the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - and it is massive. Inside the compound is a full casino, multiple restaurants and bars (including the Hard Rock Cafe), and high-end shopping, as well as a hotel and resort.

    I won $161 on the penny slots (I walked out with $101 of it...), and enjoyed walking around looking at all of the rock-n-roll memorablilia. Hard Rock does this sort of thing VERY well...

    For my fellow PinHeads... The pins are different at the Cafe than from the Hotel & Casino so be sure to check out both of the offerings...

    Hollywood Beach Theatre
    1 more image

    The Hollywood Beach Theatre is an open-air venue located right on the Broadwalk with bench seating for ~500 people. The Broadwalk often doubles as a dance floor during live performances. There is an extensive schedule of free, live concerts and dancing under the stars. The current theatre replaced a smaller theatre that preceded it which was destroyed in the 1926 hurricane. The Friday night that we were there, it was like Speakers' Corner in London (see one of the videos).

    Charnow Park is a recently renovated urban park located right on the Broadwalk. It has a fun interactive water fountain for little kids to play in (which was packed on Friday evening). For bigger kids, there is a rock climbing gym. For the even bigger kids, there are paddleball courts. A large entertainment plaza is surrounded by shaded seating and there are four picnic pavilions. Very importantly, it is next to a huge public parking garage. This is an excellent park for families with kids.

    Hollywood Beach

    Hollywood Beach was clean and not crowded. There were lounges to rent or bring your own. The water looked inviting but not many people were in it when we were there in Oct 08. People were just taking in the sun, doing Tai Chi, watching kite surfers, or playing volleyball.

    hollywood beach boardwalk

    hollywood beach offers a nice paved boardwalk that runs along the beach. it is lined with restaurants, bars, swimwear, and gift shops. if you are looking for a miami south beach experience with trendy boutiques and high end cafes you will be disappointed. hollywood beach is popular with older visitors and people with families. if you are looking for late night discos and party oriented beach bars you should visit nearby fort lauderdale or miami beach. however, hollywood beach offers a quiet laid back atmosphere in a safe and tourist friendly environment.

    hollywood beach

    one of the main reasons to visit hollywood is it's beautiful beach. hollywood beach is located between hallandale beach and dania beach on USA1A (ocean drive). from downtown hollywood take hollywood blvd. east to USA1A. parking is limited to metered side streets and a small parking lot at johnson street. don't forget to feed the meter because parking fines are expensive.
