When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

In addition to being coastal, Hollywood Beach / Hollywood by the Sea is a very nautical neighborhood,

on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,

In fact, with 37.4% of the residential real estate vacant, the Hollywood Beach / Hollywood by the Sea neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.7% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
