Located right between Miami and Fort Lauderdale is Florida’s diamond in the rough, Hallandale Beach. Not only is it the ideal spot to make your vacation home-base, but it also offers a more low-key environment than its populated neighbors. This means you can truly kick back and relax while having the best of Florida at your fingertips.
Live Like a Local
Get a glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and famous by hailing a water taxi from Beachwalk Resort’s poolside dock. On board, you’ll cruise past some of the most beautiful and luxurious mansions of Hollywood Beach and Fort Lauderdale. For a day of entertainment, head to Gulfstream Park where there’s a wide selection of stores, a bowling lounge, casino, and even a horse racetrack!
Spend a day at Oleta River State Park, where you can kayak among the mangroves and bird sanctuaries of Biscayne Bay. Once dusk hits, continue your water escapades with Sea Legs III Deep Sea Fishing! This five-hour expedition takes you to shipwrecks and reefs to try your hand at hooking the prized snapper and grouper that lie below.
ArtsPark on Fridays is the place to be if you’re visiting with family. From 5-8 p.m, they transform the park into a kid-friendly jubilee with a bounce house, face painters, a live DJ, and a free movie showing. No Florida vacation is complete without taking a day to enjoy the sun and sand, and with 23-miles of beach in the Fort Lauderdale region, you’ll have plenty of seafront to choose from.
As a close neighbor of Cuba, Florida has plenty of Cuban fare to try out. At Colada, you can divulge in a rich cafecito and try one of their medianoche Cuban sandwiches. For a taste even further beyond borders, Europa Gourmet has you covered. Here, you can shop to find ethnic ingredients from Russia, Spain, Poland, and Hungary.
To be at the epicenter of Hallandale Beach, we recommend staying at the Beachwalk Resort. With complimentary transportation to Gulfstream Park, Aventura Mall, and Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, the resort offers direct access to the best attractions in the area. Whether you plan to watch a Dolphins game at Hard Rock Stadium, or try your luck at the casino in Gulfstream Park, they’ll get you there in style. But be warned, the resort’s intimate infinity pool, poolside cabanas and stacked grill menu may entice you to stay forever.
