About Hollywood (Florida)

Hollywood can be divided into four different areas. The first would be '''Hollywood Beach''' along the Atlantic Ocean, where you will find most of the action. A short ways inland is Art Deco '''downtown Hollywood''', filled with restaurants, shops, a park, and California essence housing. From here on out there is not much to see as residual housing and small business occupies the area. When you finally get to the edge of town by the Florida Turnpike, you will find a few hotels, casinos and other attractions here along an Indian reservation owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida who have lived in the area since the 18th century.
