Young Professionals

Downtown Hollywood is a fun spot and a good place to start your search if you’re a young professional. It has plenty of restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and blocks of great boutique shopping and art galleries along the brick-lined walks. It plays host to a majority of the city’s festivals, street markets, and much of the entertainment in the city. It also has plenty of apartments and condos that are a part of or a short walk to the commercial district.

Hollywood Beach is another option for those who want to eschew the downtown nightlife and focus on the beach. It’s beautiful, fun and filled with every possible kind of water play option any zoomer would crave. There are also tons of beach bars and casual eating joints when you feel like staying close to home in one of the many local apartment buildings.

Lake Eden


If you’re looking for the fanciest of neighborhoods for raising your precious ones then take a look at Lake Eden. It is not cheap but along with the pricey homes comes beautiful yards, tree-lined streets, great schools and tons of outdoor play areas for the kiddos to play.

Another neighborhood option that is also nice but a bit less expensive is Hollywood Lakes. Plenty of beautiful historic homes and even more outdoor options than Lake Eden because you’re along the intercoastal and really close to the ocean, which makes it both family and water-friendly. It has plenty of parks, several golf courses, its own set of shops and restaurants and some of the most beautiful beaches in the greater Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area.

The Summit


Hollywood, like much of southern Florida, has amazing options for retirees. There are places like The Summit, an active lifestyle condo complex overlooking the Atlantic. It has a fitness center, sports courts (tons of pickleball!!!), outdoor pools and you’re just a short walk to the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk. If you want to live actively this is a good place to start your search.

If on the other hand you prefer a more luxurious option then check out the Four Seasons at Parkland. It’s a gated 55+ community with stunning single-family homes, a grand clubhouse, walking and biking trails and a dozen beautiful lakes. If you are excited about the idea of creating a community within the city this is a good place to check out first.
