Quick trip to Hollywood, FL- Restaurants, places not to miss

Hi everyone!

Im going to a training for my company and this time will be at Westin Diplomat in Hollywood Florida. We are going from Sunday October 4th to October 7th and we will have free only the noons (our training schedule is from 8am to 3 or 5 pm).

Someone could help with information related to the places we dont have to miss (restaurants, sightseeings, bars, beach, etc).

Thanks in advance!!

I'm not sure what the other replier exactly said, but here goes:

1. Eat at Hollywood Prime at the Diplomat Hotel - great steaks, great wine list!

2. Have a burger at Le Tub - on the intracoastal, down the street. It takes forever, and there is no air conditioning, but they have the best burgers, beer, and a decent view.

3. Walk around Downtown Hollywood (at US 1 and Hollywood Blvd). They have a large park, called the ArtsPark, and small shops and cafes on several streets just to the west of the circle/Park.

4. Walk on the Broadwalk (the beach north from your hotel - it starts a block north) and enjoy the old school cafes, ice cream shops, and stores - maybe rent a quad (four person bike) and cruise the path!

5. The Art and Culture center, on the East side of the ArtsPark Circle is small but great - terrific art, and worth spending an hour, looking at art and cooling off in the air conditioning!

Isn't the Broadwalk more like 1/2 to 1 mile from the Diplomat?

I'm not a surveyor. It's five minutes up the sand. I'm sure they can handle it.

Actually, I checked it out and the Broadwalk is rather far from the Diplomat. It's closer to the Hollywood Marriott, but a real hike from the Dip. So, if you're not into walking, you may want to take a cab...

Thanks both of you..

At least Le Tub was one of the coincidences :D

I will take in consideration your opnions, thanks again. I know im going to have a great trip, I will arrive this sunday, first of all I will going to go to Le Tub, if I dont very tired! My departure time its 6:35 am!! from San Diego, I live in Tijuana, so I need to wake up early in case I need to wait more than the usual time for crossing the border, and if everything is ok, I will be there at 4PM.

Thanks!!
