Today was a beautiful sunny morning so banabear and I headed to the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Named as one of the US top ten promenades, Hollywood Beach Broadwalk features a 2-mile long bricklined promenade lining with cafes, small shops, boutique hotels, ice cream shops, restaurants and bars facing the ocean. One can see runners, strollers, rollerbladers and cyclists enjoying the sun and the breeze while some visitors are seated on the sidewalk cafes having breakfast or relaxing while sipping on their tropical drink. There were also a lot of people enjoying themselves on the 7-mile stretch of white-sand beach.
After a short walk, we went to one of the cafes for breakfast. After which, we strolled along the strip, stopping by the small shops. We found a lot of cream colored tropical ala-Tommy Bahama shirts. I've been looking for these kind of shirts while we were still in Hawaii but could hardly find ones that banabear liked and they were also signature labeled shirts and, therefore, expensive. The ones we found at the Broadwalk shops were not only beautifully styled but affordable, too.
At the center of the promenade is the Hollywood Beach Theater where live music, concerts and dancing are being held almost daily, during the evening.
When I was living in Hawaii, the weather was cool (sometimes a bit chilly) so I almost never sweated even after spending the whole day outdoors. Over here, the weather is hot and humid so after about 30 minutes of walking, I was panting and sweating. LOL!
I am excited to go back to the Broadwalk next weekend for the 4th of July celebration.
