Hollywood Beach, Florida is still unspoiled. A small beachtown with historic charm rests just 6 miles from Fort Lauderdale Airport, but away from the hustle and bustle of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. One hotel, the Hollywood Beach Marriott, is highly reccommended. 4 Diamond rated, yet casual. Beachfront hotel on a 2.5 mile Broadwalk, for people-watching, strolling, biking, blading, or even rent a Segway and cruise! I was there watching a wedding taking place on the beach
