Hollywood is located on Florida’s east coast, nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach. It’s not as touristy as the surrounding areas, and it is an excellent place to put down roots and raise a family.
As a smaller community, the town really started to take shape in the early 50s and 60s and has grown to a population of over 140,000. Founder, Joseph W. Young, named the town and fashioned it after the “other” Hollywood that catered to the rich and famous.
Just north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a highly-popular vacation destination is Pompano Beach. A town that’s been deeply rooted in Florida since the early 1900’s, Pompano Beach is known not just for its beautiful beaches, abundant dive sites, and offshore coral reef, but also for the famous Pompano Beach Pier that seems to disappear magically into the Atlantic Ocean.
