“The Heart of the Gold Coast” beats between Palm Beach and Miami. Pompano Beach is known for its aquatic activities with a little something for everyone. Scuba divers and snorkelers explore living coral reefs up close. Anglers cast along a 1000-foot-long municipal fishing pier. Families gather at grills and picnic tables, as children climb on beachside playgrounds. Enjoy fine dining and shopping year-round, or visit during one of Pompano Beach’s annual special events – the holiday boat parade in December, April’s seafood festival, or the fishing rodeo each May.
