Hollywood Fl. offers a variety of restaurants and different foods to cater to everyone's taste. A small but very friendly and beautiful downtown area. Safe during the day time and night time. Nightlife is always buzzing and again a diversity of music, drinks, and dance venues are offered. I'm also giving a 4 star rating for schools, most offer sports activities, teachers can always be reached for concerns/questions parents might have. Counseling, (in many cases free of charge) is also available. Can't say enough about the gorgeous, people and pet friendly beaches, which offer an immense variety of accommodations ranging from different prices, as well as restaurants. Public transportation also available form downtown to malls and beaches. Not difficult to find public parking at the beach and moderately priced. I hold Hollywood FL. as a friendly, safe,always in action town, where a family as well as single person can live comfortably!

It was my first time to the state of Florida let alone Hollywood. I've met many kind and helpful people and the diversity there is just amazing. The food is delicious, I've even found my favorite restaurant! So many places to see and go. Every store ive been to you see that they are hiring. This is the place to be, i promise.
Hollywood is a great place to live with various activities for families and people of all ages to participate in throughout different parks and recreation systems, community centers, etc. In this city, it is important to emphasize and educate the importance of protecting the environment, such as beaches and parks so Florida wildlife can live in their habitats safely, and so citizens and visitors may safely enjoy the diverse environment and fun-filled activities within Hollywood.
