Stormy walk along Hollywood, Fl Broadwalk

We decided to explore South Florida and its beaches as the “winter” on the French Riviera was just around the corner. Incidentally, Miami also happens to be one of the sister cities of Nice. Having seen Miami Beach before, we decided to head north.

This is not the Hollywood you might think. The city of Hollywood, FL is situated between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, in Broward County. Its 2.5 mile (or 4 km) long broadwalk was named as one of America’s best beach walks in 2010 by Travel + Leisure.

Developed in the 20s, it used to be a real boardwalk which was later paved. Compared with many seaside walks on the Riviera, the atmosphere is quite laid back here as well, in the American way.

As our video clip shows, the nasty storm threatening the Thanksgiving week in the US in 2013 did not even spare South Florida.
