Though much less well-known than its counterpart in California, Hollywood, FL, is a city worthy of exploring as well. The city's star attraction is its spectacular beach, which features soft white sand and turquoise water just begging to be photographed. The beach itself features many different shops and cafes, so don't hesitate to take a step back and enjoy some downtime! The best way to do so is by strolling the 2.5-mile-long boardwalk, which offers unobstructed views of the great ocean. If you are not interested in the beach, head to the Anne Kolb Nature Center, a mangrove wetland with unique flora and fauna.

Due to its proximity to the Atlantic, Hollywood is the perfect spot to enjoy the freshest seafood around. For Mediterranean-inspired dishes, check out A La Turca Mediterranean Cuisine. However, if you want classic American eats, you should head toward Hollywood Grill.

Bus and train routes connect Hollywood to Miami, West Palm Beach, Orlando, and destinations beyond Florida via transfers. Air travel is provided by the nearby Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, but you could also travel from Fort Lauderdale to the larger Miami Airport for more varied flight options.

And for animal lovers with a penchant for streaming docu-series, the Big Cat Rescue (yes, THAT one!) will be a great choice.
