The population of South Florida has grown to 6 million recently and many locals have seen and felt the effects. The roads are more congested and access to popular attractions is more difficult.
Surprisingly many parks in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade are fairly quiet on weekdays. Hollywood North Beach Park at A1A and Sheridan Street is worth a visit if you have never been there. Just a few steps east of the park is Hollywood Beach. This part of Hollywood Beach is considered the “quiet end” by many because it does not get the traffic that is seen near the beach at Johnson Street. I like visiting early in the mornings or late in the afternoons. Stop by when you can.
