Part of Broward County, Hallandale is easy to reach with accessibility by land ( I-95), by sea ( Port of Everglades and Port of Miami), and air (Hollywood Miami International Airport).

A lovely place to return every time one is in Florida, this is supported by the number of retired residents who were once tourists and frequent visitors of Hallandale.
