Hallandale Beach is a city within the confines of the Broward County. It occupies the southeast portion of the county, adjacent to the beautiful neighborhood of Aventura in the Miami-Dade County, giving residents a great access to the best of what the two counties has to offer.
The city takes its name from the one of Henry Flagler’s workers, Luther Halland whom Flagler instructed to found a settlement south of Dania. Halland started the community, constructed a trading post and served as its first postmaster.
Mainly a farming community, Hallandale Beach attracted families, mostly of Swedish descent, to move into the settlement. The beach was yet to be commercialized and served only as a recreational avenue for the residents.
The beauty of the community and its beach became popular that tourists came flocking to Hallandale that by 1927, the community grew to have 1,500 residents. By 1947, the community was incorporated to become a city.
