So this weekend I posted on my facebook (here) that I’m ready to ditch the stilettos and live my life in flip flops. Stay tuned for the kind of flip flops that you will love to be seen in! Any of you ladies want to join me?
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Hollywood Beach
If you are familiar with Jimmy Buffett and Margaritaville, you have probably seen this saying posted on plaques and signs throughout the resorts and bars. I found mine yesterday at the recently opened brand new Margaritaville Beach Resort on the famed Broadwalk in Hollywood, Florida. Sitting on the beach directly in front of the resort, taking in the sun, sand and surf and the great music that would please all ages coming the Landshark Bar & Grill, I was once again reminded to ditch the stilettos and put on my flip flops! If you are thirsty and need a cocktail, there is no better bartender than Mark. Take a minute or two and watch him in action. You will find him at the Lone Palm Beach Tiki Bar located right on the Broadwalk just steps from the sand along with Floridays Airstream Café which features a quick service menu with gourmet hot dogs, snacks, ice cold beverages, all inspired by Buffett’s travels.
The Broadwalk stretches about 2 ½ miles along the Atlantic Ocean and you won’t find cars, street noise, trucks or traffic. What you will find however are plenty of joggers, bicyclists, roller-bladers, walkers and people watchers young and old enjoying the many cafes, restaurants and bars located on the beautifully brick-paved thoroughfare.
Hollywood, founded in the 1920’s by Joseph Wesley Young, also happens to be the town in which we have lived for the past 22 years after deciding to leave behind the cold weather and snow up north. Mr. Young’s vision (Young’s Circle) was to create a “city for everyone.” As a resident of Hollywood it is truly an eclectic city, a city for everyone with plenty of local old Florida charm. Hollywood Beach and the famed Broadwalk, known as Florida’s Diamond of the Gold Coast, are unique to the state and the slow transformation over the years has made Hollywood the perfect beach destination.
Award-Winning Hollywood Beach
Located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, just minutes away Fort Lauderdale International Airport, Hollywood Beach has been awarded the Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Winner for 2015, and has also been named one of America’s Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel + Leisure magazine. With easy ocean access and a village-like feel, Hollywood Beach should be on your 2016 list of hidden gems to visit.
What better place to live my life in flip flops!
