  • This is a most relaxing time for the heat in South Florida. Awesome restaurants and little shops nearby. Also some nice hotels. But the better hotels are on the other side crossing Oakland Park Blvd. Right on Ocean Drive. Anyways, all on Ocean Drive going up all the way to Pompano Beach are plenty of GREAT hotels...plenty!
  • The beach is always clean. Parking is a little hard to find during the weekend (mainly on summer). Some parts are busier than others, but there’s always a spot for everyone. The BBQ area and the small playground is comfy with plenty of space to rest with family and friends.
