pompano beach

pompano beach is a southeast florida beach town located between boca raton and fort lauderdale. pompano beach is named after a florida fish that is caught in the atlantic ocean off of south florida. the town of pompano was first settled in 1884 and was incorporated in 1908 but it did not gain any significant population until the 1920's florida land boom. in 1947 the town of pompano and pompano beach were combined and at the time it's population was mostly retirees and winter visitors. pompano beach is not as upscale as boca raton or fort lauderdale and is less expensive to visit especially during the winter tourist season. pompano beach is worth checking out for tourists to south florida on a budget.
