Get to know Hillsboro Beach

If you’re headed to Hillsboro Beach, you won't just want to take State Road A1A — you kind of have to. The scenic coastal highway is the sole main public road on this Deerfield Beach island town, carving a north-south path to the Hillsboro Inlet. Along the way, stunning homes and luxurious condominiums hug the beaches on both sides of this three-plus-mile strip of land that doesn’t grow wider than 900 feet. Inherently scenic environs — Intracoastal Waterway to the west, Atlantic Ocean to the east — make Hillsboro Beach a particularly enticing perch for snowbirds. Yet, Hillsboro Beach is a divine dominion no matter what page the calendar is on. Scenery aside, the town is also a quick trip to further excitement Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, and even Boca Raton. However, no matter where you go, the historic Hillsboro Inlet Light will mark the way home.

Living in Broward County

Florida’s second-largest county by population, Broward fills the gap between Miami and Palm Beach. Its developed portion leans almost entirely suburban, with the remaining majority of its land mass within the Everglades. The county’s namesake, Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, spent much of his gubernatorial term lobbying to reclaim the region’s wetlands for agriculture and development, finding a key ally in Teddy Roosevelt. The resulting land boom transformed Fort Lauderdale, the country seat, into a bustling resort town — a ring of suburbs incorporated soon thereafter. Today’s Broward boasts the obligatory beaches, vibrant shopping districts, and a litany of cultural attractions, along with the weather to enjoy them year-round. While it’s considered part of the greater Miami metro, the area boasts a diverse economy all its own. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has some 700 daily flights, and Port Everglades is one of the country’s busiest. Tri-Rail and Brightline offer commuters an alternative to the highway, linking population centers from Miami to Palm Beach.
