It is the mixture of the beautiful subtlety of Palm Beach and the exciting robustness of Miami. Pompano Beach is the city that embodies such blended qualities to form its own uniqueness. Just a few miles north of Ft. Lauderdale, this city boasts of many one-of-a-kind sights and characteristic activities that make it both a surprising vacation destination and a wonderful residential option.

Lying along Florida’s Gulf Coast, Pompano Beach’s temperate waters are perfect for beach activities year-round. Many visitors and residents alike enjoy various water activities such as fishing, boating, snorkeling, and diving. There are so many fascinating and historical wreckage sites deep under Pompano’s waters that are just perfect for those adventurous types. Wide shores of white sands that are typically quieter than the busier neighbors of its surrounding beaches, Pompano Beach is the perfect place for sunbathing, people watching, and just plain relaxing. Along the coast are a plethora of beach resorts, hotels, and villas to choose from when staying. And when the beach gets too sandy and warm, head on over to Pompano’s world-class golf courses to swing a few holes or to the number of tennis courts to finish a set or two.
Besides beaching, golfing, and tennis, Pompano Beach offers many other activities for fun and entertainment. Just a short car ride west of the beach is two favorite spots right next to each other: Isle Casino and Pompano Park Harness Racing. The Isle Casino is known for its live action poker tables and 1,500 slots. It also features many restaurants and is also smoke-free. On the other hand, Pompano Park is great for all racing enthusiasts, as it features award-winning trotters and pacers and many more. Shopping is fabulous at Pompano Beach, as it features many boutique stores that are only available there. You can even live the complete beach and park life by foregoing the car and renting one of the city’s bicycle rentals. It can avoid the many hassles involving vehicles including traffic and even tow trucks.
For children and families, Pompano Beach is the perfect place for a day full of beach and park activities. But there are also other activities for kids to enjoy. Sky Zone is the largest trampoline spot in all of South Florida. They even offer dodge ball and basketball activities in addition to their open trampoline jumps.
