Hallandale is located in the southeastern part of the state of Florida and a city in Broward County that sits along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and is in the northern part of Miami, just south of Hollywood. The area was first settled by Swedish farmers during the late 1890s and was then laid out in 1898 and named after the trading post operator, Luther Halland. The area was devastated by a hurricane in 1926, and along with it is the collapse of the Florida real estate, and the economy’s growth was then inhibited during those times. The city then developed its economy to become a tourist and a retirement center. Hallandale’s name was then changed to Hallandale Beach in 1999. Hallandale Beach is surrounded by notable cities and attractions— the area is south of Hollywood, north of Aventura, west of the Atlantic Ocean, and east is of Pembroke Park. It features the fastest-growing populations in Metro Miami and Broward County. More than 39,200 people live in Hallandale Beach, and around 52% of the population own their residence. The median home value in the city is $174,400, which is slightly lower than the national average of $184,700. Many families, retirees, and young professionals call Hallandale Beach home, and majority of the residents proudly sport a liberal outlook in life. Notable destinations in the city include the Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino, Oleta River State Park, Greynolds Park, Wet Lake Park, and Haulover Naturist Beach.
