South Broward's roots are in early Florida settlements. Thus far it has avoided some of the glitz and glamour of neighbors to the north and south, and folks here like it that way. Still, there's plenty to see and do—excellent restaurants in every price range and a new focus on the arts, both inland and on the beach. South Broward's beachfront extends for miles without interruption, although character of communities along the shoreline varies. Heading 4 miles south from Fort Lauderdale Beach proper, you’ll reach Dania Beach, in another 4 miles you’ll be in Hollywood, then a few miles more and finally you’ll hit Hallandale at the Broward-Dade county border.
This town at the south edge of Fort Lauderdale is probably best known for its antiques dealers, but there are other attractions as well.
