When visitors want to visit one of our beaches they typically think of heading to Fort Lauderdale or South Beach Miami. But if you’re looking for a beach experience that’s less touristy, yet still offers a wealth of activities for the whole family, try paying a visit to Hollywood Beach. Located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the beach is a quick thirty-minute drive from the Sawgrass Grand Hotel.

Dip your toes in the sand and soak in the rays, or opt to cruise along the 2.5-mile pedestrian boardwalk lined with beach shops and an array of waterfront dining options. Let loose by renting a jet ski or dancing the night away at the Hollywood Beach Theater, which offers free live music Wednesday through Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m.
