"Bringing some of "Hollywood" to Hollywood Beach"

I read a review on here about Diplomat Parkway being a very prestigious street. Although I don't disagree I'm not sure if the person writing that knows the real history of this street and area. The original owners of the Diplomat Hotel still live on Diplomat Parkway. They were often referred to as the King and Queen of Florida. They hosted parties to celebrity friends such as Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr, owned Breeder's Cup Champion Horses as well as producing Broadway shows in NY. They were a real part of Florida's glamour scene. They truly brought some of "Hollywood" to Hollywood. Other celebrities such as Sally Fields and Burt Reynolds have also taken up vacation homes on Diplomat Parkway. If you drive down the street today you will see some beautiful homes that really capture that mid-century modern architecture that you see now coming back into style. The 1960's had some unique and beautiful home designs. You will also see plenty of new construction and remodels on the street, like most areas of South Florida that are on the water. The large waterfront lots on the east side of the street are very attractive to investors, as well as the west side of the street which is on the Diplomat Country Club golf course. Diplomat is definitely a hidden gem. Hopefully all the new construction won't take away from the history and nostalgia.
Pros
  • Great shopping and dining, especially at nearby Aventura
  • Large Lots on the water
  • Near Hollywood Boardwalk
Cons
  • traffic on Hallandale Beach Blvd

"Diplomat Parkway - Prestigious Street in Hollywood Lakes/Beach"

This street has always been a prestigious address in Hollywood Beach area but as of lately you're seeing more and more homes being remodeled or knocked down and rebuilt into luxurious estates. Many of these homes are 6-7k square feet and larger with half acre lots and 150+ feet on the water. With similar size homes in Las Olas going for $4M and higher, with lots that are only half the size, and very narrow canals, Diplomat Parkway is definitely a hidden gem! The Desoto Waterway is wide and beautiful with great views of the beach towers (Trump Towers, Diplomat, etc).

"Ritzy Diplomatic Parkway"

Diplomatic Parkway seems to be one of the ritziest streets located in Hollywood, FL. Lined with tall palm trees and beautiful flowers, it takes you right by the Diplomat Country Club. Stop by there for some seriously great golfing on their beautiful waterfront courses on the lake. In my opinion, its one of the better places in Hollywood to spend a day with your significant other to play some really good golf.
