The promenade runs along the Atlantic Ocean with the rolling surf and swaying palms on one side and shops, restaurants and inns on the other.

Description from Hollywood’s redevelopment agency.

“…Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is more than 2 miles long, featuring a brick-lined pedestrian promenade that combines dramatic coastal views of award-winning Blue Wave beaches with the nostalgic feel of a Main Street thoroughfare. Hollywood’s oceanfront Broadwalk offers miles of car-free enjoyment. Walkers, runners, bicyclists and rollerbladers set their own pace on this path, which is bordered by six miles of Hollywood’s famous coastline, boutique hotels, charming shops, cafés and places to eat facing the ocean.”
