Hollywood Beach and Boardwalk, Miami FL

Description

The Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, or Broadwalk, is a wide pedestrian and bike path that runs for two miles beside the beach past cafes. It's a fun place in the morning when everyone is out and about getting some exercise. The bike and pedestrian portion of the boardwalk are easy to distinguish from each other as the bike portion is cement and the pedestrian portion is paved in brown bricks. This makes for safe, hassle-free walking. Bring a stroller and take your child for a long walk while you people-watch. You can finish off your walk with some playing in the sand. 
The beach itself is cleaned often, though there are still plenty of cigarette butts. It's a very short walk across the sand to the water, which was full of seaweed when we were there.
On July 4 you can watch fireworks while sitting in the sand. They are centered at Charnow Park along the boardwalk, and there are shuttles to help with the parking situation.
The cafes are a bit rundown and the food isn't the greatest. There is usually no AC in these cafes so the service isn't always the friendliest. There is a Subway sandwiches, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, ethnic cafes (Greek, Russian, Armenian, Mexican), plus Broadwalk Grill.
After your walk, it's just a short drive to Anne Kolb Nature Center where you can climb the observation tower for high-up views!
