Hollywood is a legendary city just south of Fort Lauderdale that draws tourists and locals to its old-Florida charm, seaside entertainment, classic Florida living and great shopping.
Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street, just east of Dixie Highway in Downtown Hollywood is a leafy and brick-lined commercial district well-known for its six blocks of eclectic shopping and sidewalk cafes, boutiques and galleries. Just minutes from Hollywood Beach, this district is on the National Register of Historic Places and is where locals gather for festivals, street markets and a variety of entertainment.
With plenty of free three-hour parking available, plan to spend time exploring the old and the new. Here you'll find everything from fashionable shoes at Ellas Shoes to hot styles at Roxx Clothing. Peruse the amazing glittering selections of jewelry and watches and accessories at Morningstar's Jewelers, then find something special for later at Melina's Lingerie Shoppe.
For those who enjoy all things organic, don't leave before you stop at Btrue Organics Natural Skin Care Products Store. They carry a full line of organic skin and hair care products including makeup and natural sunblock. And don't forget to scout out the various vintage and antique shops that will surely inspire you with fond memories or ideas for a new and classic look.
Downtown Hollywood is a must-see for every visitor, and it's the perfect backdrop for those vacation photos that serve as a reminder of a pleasant and relaxing afternoon.
