Welcome to Hollywood
Hollywood positions itself as a gateway to Fort Lauderdale. It's divided into two sections: the bustling waterfront section, and small, pleasant historic downtown section, a couple of miles west. Most visitors come for the waterfront, which has earned a sizable wedge of the spring break market since Lauderdale gave revelers the boot. The resulting influx brings with it concerts in the sand, beach-volleyball tourneys and assorted debauchery each March. In recent times, the city has tried to glam up its image with several new South Beach–style developments.
