There are few remnants of Americana that can evoke a sense of nostalgia quite like the Frankie and Annette-inspired beach boardwalk. And lucky us, we have the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk in our backyard, anytime we're jonesing for a 1960s era throwback. Sure, nowadays girls are more likely to be wearing Brazilian thongs than polka dotted bikinis, but that's piece of progress most people are unlikely to complain about. It's a 2.5 mile stretch of sand and street that offers restaurants, cafés, shops, and inns, plus three oceanfront parks with playgrounds, a weekly produce market, and lots of free performances at the Hollywood Beach Theater. And a free trolley, too. Beachfront living at its best.
