Best Scenic Drive
Hollywood founder Joseph Young planned one part of this city right: You'd be hard-pressed to find a prettier place in all of Broward County to whiz by than this stretch. We despise those treacherous circles, but once you navigate your way through them, you reap the reward: four spacious lanes lined by 30-foot palm trees and stately pastel houses. There are no stores, no neon signs, no high rises, and usually no traffic. Put the top down on a breezy night, throw on some Frank Sinatra, breathe the slightly salty air, gawk at the million-dollar houses you could never afford -- especially the historic, canary yellow Young mansion the city is trying to buy -- and let the road sweep you to the beach like a grain of sand. On this road you won't even care if the bridge goes up.
