Hallandale Beach

Over its twenty-hundred-year history, the city of Hallandale has gone a dizzying journey from a modest post store to one of Florida's most vibrant entertainment centers, known for its casinos, horse racing and charming beaches.


Hallandale Beach: a city of ten families

For Florida, this is not uncommon: trains multiplied trade and tourist visits, many villages grew like magic. But in the case of Hallandale, everything was somewhat different: the railway leadership itself decided to participate in the development of the peninsula.

In 1895, Luther Halland received an order from Henry Flagler himself, a railway tycoon, to establish a new settlement. Halland and his partner, the Swedish immigrant Olaf Zetterland, fulfilled the order. The first postal kiosk appeared on the then still cheap land, and Halland, the first postmaster, modestly christened the settlement in his honor.

Five years later, the town had a dozen families, a school and a church were built. By the beginning of the 30s, the city boasted a population of one and a half thousand people, electricity and street lighting. In 1947, the municipality bought land along the ocean coast, and in 1999 changed its name to Hallandale Beach.

Attractions in Hallandale Beach

Gulfstream Park is one of the oldest institutions in the city, founded in 1939 by the Donn family. Soon after the opening of the field, a crowd of 18,000 people gathered at the races. In 1952, the clubhouse was built and the first races of the Florida Derby were held, which collected a prize pool for the then huge sum of $ 100,000. World records were set here, the largest tote board in the history of horse racing was placed, and prestigious Breeder Cup competitions were held. In 2004, the restoration and expansion of the complex worth $130 million was carried out.

The casino with its magnificent halls offers over 700 gaming machines and 20 poker tables. Winnings can be spent in luxurious shopping arcades, gourmet restaurants and nightclubs in the game park.

Mardi Gras casino was opened in 1934, immediately after the legalization of the so-called general bets, when bets from various types of sweepstakes are collected in a single pool. Initially, the institution specialized in dog racing, over time, poker tournaments and gaming machines were added to them, the number of which exceeded a thousand units. In one of the tournaments, you can participate virtually through the electronic Bravo Poker application, and for fans of live and tobacco games, a room with a special ventilation system is equipped. The casino regularly hosts pop shows, its restaurants are famous for French cuisine, and the Marriott and Crowne Plaza hotels offer visitors modern comfortable rooms and many accompanying services.
