Beach of the Week: Hollywood Beach, Florida

BeachManiacBlogWithText3_150pxBustling. It’s the perfect word to describe Hollywood Beach, Florida. With the addition last fall of the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville Beach Resort and the Margaritaville Entertainment District – complete with an outdoor beachside music and entertainment stage and FlowRider Double waterslide – added life has been breathed into this already vibrant destination. Put on your beach shirt, shorts and sandals and stroll two and a half miles up and down the palm-tree lined promenade past dozens of outdoor dining and drinking venues on one side with the umbrella-decorated sand and bubbling surf on the other. Or rent a bike – we recommend Skip Rogers and the good people at The Bike Shack – and soak it all in while gliding past the crowd. I visited Hollywood Beach recently and took the video above and the pictures below.

Margaritaville plans glitzy resort in Hollywood Beach, Florida

Rendering courtesy of Margaritaville Hollywood Beach, LLC.

Plans are moving forward for a “Parrothead Paradise” – the expansive Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Hotel Resort in south Florida. The $130 million Jimmy Buffett/Parrothead themed oasis will occupy six acres, be 17 stories high and have 349 rooms and several restaurants. Of course the decor will be all beach all the time, and it wouldn’t be a Margaritaville resort without a large lagoon pool, a waterslide and a “Flo Rider” where you can surf the afternoon away without setting foot in the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Plans are to begin construction in July 2012, with a grand opening targeted for August 2014. Anticipation of the project already has spurred economic development in the surrounding area.
