Pompano Beach Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 61 photos

Pompano Beach was first settled in 1884 as a farming community and took its name from the fish species pompano that abounded in the nearby waters. The Town of Pompano was incorporated in 1908, but it was not until 1947 that it joined with the beach area to form the City of Pompano Beach. Its landmark is the famous Hillsboro Lighthouse, named for the Earl of Hillsboro, who was given large grants of land here during the English occupation.
Pompano Beach offers a variety of special events throughout the year. With a perfect climate that averages 75 degrees, there is always something fun to do.
 Pompano Beach Seafood Festival
 Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo
