Hello,

We plan a trip to Hollywood Florida and we want to rent a home there in August. I wanted to know if it is a good neighborhood. The house is located N 17th avenue and the N 14th avenue. What do you think?
Besides is August a bad timing with the weather there?
Let us know. Thank you.
Dan

The areas you mention are good, N 14 Avenue a little superior to N 17 Avenue. They are both East of US1 and in a great area. The weather is hot, but we have air conditioning here. It will rain every day, for about 20 - 30 minutes sometime between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The saying goes "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes". Just wait out the rain and you'll be fine for the rest of the day.

The area where you'll be staying is close to the beach and the boardwalk, 5-10 minutes. And near the downtown area which has alot of restaurants and some shops and Young's Circle that has events on a regular basis.

I hope you enjoy your stay

North 17th is just one block east of US1, and not as desirable as 14th. The element that congregates on US1 all the way from Dania to Hallandale doesn't tend to go as far east as 14th. By element, I mean junkies, hookers, and the homeless who range from annoying to aggressive.

The house is located just off Young Circle on Tyler Street (1 block east of Young Circle). Is it that bad? We are a family of four with 2 young children (4 years old and 7 months). Junkies and Hookers is not really what we look for.
Let us know. Thank you
Dan

Tyler isn't as bad as areas to the North and South, but I still would be mindful because the area has a few halfway houses. As long as you're mindful of the area and the house you are in is secure and kept locked, you should be fine. Think twice about letting your kids wander around the area alone, though.

Oh, I just reread and saw the kids aren't teens.

What do you mean by halfway houses? We just look for a quiet street with a pool and close to the beach and in secure neighborhood. Let me know if you think this is this kind of place or if we just stay away.

The area if fine. You need to follow the same rules as every smart traveler. There are several restaurants, a grocery store, drug store, bank, and just about everything you could need very close by. Hollywood Blvd. takes you right to the beach.

Halfway houses are where recovering addicts stay. That creates a transient environment, along with the six methadone clinics just west of US1. I wouldn't call the area terrible, but I wouldn't call it fine, either. If you have a solid door you keep locked, it should be ok, and if you have a dog, even better. I lived in Hollywood most of my life, and found that the most aggressive street person was afraid of dogs, no matter how big or small.
