Hallandale Beach is most known for its Thoroughbred horse racing, which is second in the country only to Louisville, Kentucky. The area also features the Hollywood Greyhound Track with dog racing six months each year and slot machine gambling has also been approved for the city.
Still, Hallandale Beach has even more to offer residents. With its tropical climate and rich history, Hallandale Beach has remained a popular vacation destination for decades. The city began as a trading and farming community at the turn of the century and was incorporated in 1927. While it's grown a lot, the area still maintains a hometown feel. Hallandale Beach is home to a number of luxury condominium developments on the beach, including the Ocean Marine Yacht Club and the Beach Club I, II and III.
