Population: 157000


Hollywood is Broward County’s third-largest municipality, encompassing 27 square miles along the Atlantic Ocean between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Hollywood is home to more than 60 parks, including seven miles of sun-drenched beaches. The one-of-a-kind Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, a promenade that stretches nearly 2.5 miles along the Atlantic Ocean, has been named one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel + Leisure magazine. Alongside recreation, Hollywood Beach provides critical nesting habitat for three endangered sea turtle species: leatherback, loggerhead and green. Turtle nesting season in Hollywood is March 1-October 31. The beach dunes are an important feature of this habitat for female turtles looking for protected, dark areas to lay their eggs. The dunes are also habitat for native coastal plant species and the wildlife they support, and they provide protection to adjacent beachfront properties during strong weather events. Hollywood has been a certified Community Wildlife Habitat since 2017 with over 400 certified wildlife habitats to date.
