The region has been designated a mega region of the future and a driver of U.S. economic growth. Hollywood offers:

  • Superior combination of location and access featuring the world class Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, one of the busiest seaports in the world-Port Everglades, and convenient railway and interstate connections.
