I was driving thru the town today after visiting the "Hard Rock" and it seems run down and not a good area. But the downtown where the restaurants are seem nice driving thru. I've been on the beach walk (or whatever it is called) one day and that was really nice. I'm just a yearly tourist and I hope you won't take any harsh judgments on your town. Also, I've met people in other areas of Florida who live there and they say the living costs are better there than northern areas of Florida.

Like where? The downtown area or the Boardwalk? Taft Street looked like a rough area, so is that where your talking about? I saw a sign "3rd Saturday Art Walk"...something like that, so it seem like a happening town like what we have back home.

johnson street is probably the worst part of town

also down by the circle is really bad

the area around the casino is almost decent if your really cash strapped but id personally avoid that whole area

I don't gamble, but went to the "Pow-Wow" Festival that they had at "Hard Rock". That place is HUGE! After some kid kicked me when she was walking in front of me, I had enough of that place! It was awful smoky in some areas too. There was a cop-like lady passing out tickets along the metered area in the downtown area with the restaurants, so I decided not to even try to find a place to park and walk around. Is there any nice areas of Hollywood to live that is safe? Looked like it by the bridge where it opens for boats. It looked cleaner and very nice homes.
