Located midway between Palm Beach and Miami, Pompano Beach is often called “The Heart of the Gold Coast.” At American Watersports, we know just how special Pompano Beach is. If you are visiting the area, be sure to enjoy these top four Pompano Beach activities.
1. Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse
The Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse is a historic landmark you won’t want to miss. The lighthouse was first illuminated in 1907 after traveling 4,000 nautical miles from Detroit, MI, to its current location in Pompano Beach. Guided tours are provided by Lighthouse Scenic Tours and include a trip to the top of the lighthouse, information about the lighthouse and the grounds, and a scenic cruise through “Millionaire Mile”.
2. Butterfly World
People of all ages will love Butterfly World! Butterfly World is the world’s largest butterfly park, and houses more than 20,000 live butterflies from all over the world. Additionally, the park is comprised of six free-flight aviaries and offers visitors the opportunity to hand feed the lorikeets! The grounds also boast beautiful botanical gardens, a butterfly museum, the Live Bug Zoo, outdoor cafes, a gift shop, and a garden center.
