Butterfly World

Butterfly World is technically a block outside the city limits, but we still love it as if it’s our own. We always direct families who stay with us at Beach Vacation Rentals to these vibrant botanical gardens and world’s largest butterfly farm. Let a colorful butterfly land on your finger, meet a litter of beautiful lorikeets, and check out the world’s largest passion vine collection. The botanical gardens are a meticulously-cultivated marvel. Many nature photographers snap professional photos of flowers, butterflies, parrots, ponds, and waterfalls. The insect museum (for those who dare enter) is a genuinely rousing experience.

Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park

Tourists and locals alike head out for a great evening of dining and entertainment to the smoke-free Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park. They enjoy poker, dazzling slots, live entertainment, an assortment of fabulous restaurants, and harness racing. Pompano Harness Park has been the home of world-class standardbred horse racing since the mid-1960s, earning our city the title of “Winter Capital of Harness Racing.” The large, modern,  indoor casino has a wide variety of top-notch restaurants for those looking for a steakhouse, Italian, grand buffet, or delicatessen. The Fling Lounge also has live entertainment every Saturday night.

Pompano Beach / North Ocean Park

Pompano has earned a “Blue Wave Beach” designation by the Clean Beaches Coalition. The city completed a $50-million revitalization of its beachfront promenade, and Pompano Beach Pier is currently undergoing a $15 million, state-of-the-art reconstruction slated to open in March 2019. It’s already flanked by casual and upscale dining with spectacular water views and iconic architecture. The north end of the beach, North Ocean Park, has stellar views of the uniquely-erected, historic Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, and is nationally known as “the scene” for extreme water sports such as kiteboarding and big-game kayak fishing.
