Family vacation on Hollywood beach
As the state's number one industry, tourism was responsible for welcoming 15.4 million visitors to Broward County in 2015, who spent more than $14.2 billion, and employing nearly 180,000 Floridians. For every 85 visitors, one job is supported in Broward County. 

People from all over the world choose to travel to Hollywood, Florida to take advantage of its pristine coastline with sandy beach and sunny skies. It's no surprise Hollywood is home to world class resorts like The Diplomat Beach Resort and Jimmy Buffet's unique Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort with its authentic, “no worries,” tropical vibe.
