Pompano Beach, FL

About Pompano BeachSettled in 1880 and named for a local fish, Pompano Beach is known for its abundant sunshine and variety of recreational opportunities. Tourism became the city's focus in the 1920s after the Dixie Highway was completed. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Pompano Beach is a popular resort. The city has approximately 50 parks, many of which offer tennis, softball, fishing and swimming. Shipwreck Park, an underwater artificial reef with rotating art exhibits, is a popular dive site.

In December one of the longest-running holiday boat parades in the nation delights thousands of spectators along the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway. Dozens of illuminated yachts and smaller boats compete for prizes in several categories during the Greater Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade .
