Despite its award-winning "Blue Wave" beach, affordable seaside lifestyle (a rarity in Florida!), magnificent biodiversity, and an array of outdoor recreation on land and water, there's no denying that Deerfield Beach isn't the most well-known Floridian destination.
The Broward County city covers 16.3 square miles, of which 15.1 square miles is land and 1.2 square miles is water. It is south of Boca Raton, over 45 minutes north of Miami, and 21 minutes from Fort Lauderdale. Deerfield Beach is also a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area.
The neighborhood is one of the quietest but most family-friendly places to visit for a sun-drenched holiday, yet you'll rarely see the place filled with rowdy tourists.
That said, its serenity doesn't take away from the fact that Deerfield Beach gives tourists a top-tier vacation and attractions guaranteed to keep all ages happily occupied FOR DAYS!
So, whether you're into golf, beaches, fine dining, or the natural world, you'll likely find something that piques your interest in Deerfield Beach!
Here are the top five things you can do in Deerfield Beach:
Food is essential and probably the most-awaited part of a trip, whether it's national, more so international.
Luckily, there won't be any disappointment in Deerfield Beach's top eats, especially if you're looking to cap off a day in the sun with a delicious dinner overlooking the blue waves!
Think picturesque views, sunset backdrops, delicious cuisines, and seaside dining-- all these set apart Deerfield Beach's dining experience from the rest.
Here, most restaurants offer a laid-back and comfortable setting, and you'll RARELY find pretentious servers giving you a hard time ordering.
And the food?
They taste of comfort and familiarity, and of course, boast various dishes and international cuisines!
But if you ask me, nothing beats eating FRESH seafood overlooking Deerfield Beach's ocean views-- luckily, it's their strong suit!
While there are a limited number of shopping centers and malls in Deerfield Beach, the choices are enough for you to do a little side shopping and a bunch of errands during your trip without having to travel to nearby communities like Boca Raton or Miami.
For one, the Deerfield Mall is a convenient place you can visit if you want to shop from stores like Publix, Marshall's, TJ Max, ULTA, and many others.
The mall also offers several restaurants, YouFit Gym, DB movie theater, and a dollar store, so if you want to get some gym time in before a shopping spree, you don't have to go anywhere else.
Another option you have is Sawgrass Promenade, another Deerfield landmark at South Military Trail.
It's a downtown hub of shopping, dining, and professional services all-in-one plaza, and a great one-stop-shop for your shopping needs and errands.
Other malls within the neighborhood are the Deerfield Beach Shopping Center, Century Plaza Shopping Center, The Cove Shopping Center, and more.
What do you say about taking some time off your hectic work schedule to travel to an award-winning beach and spend some downtime?
I say the irresistible offer becomes even MORE TEMPTING if it's at Deerfield Beach!
Welcome to Deerfield Beach (the reason for adding "beach" to Deerfield's name), a premier "Blue Wave" beach that boasts excellent water quality, beach conditions, safety services, public information, and habitat conservation policies.
Lusciously soft golden sand lines this pristine stretch, and it also boasts a long fishing pier and boardwalk for when you're done hanging out and want to go for a walk or catch some fish.
Pitch a sun tent, play some volleyball, or just jump in the waves; whatever you NEED to do to recharge for the weekend, you can do it at Deerfield Beach!
And the best news?
Spending a day on this stunning beach is one of the best free things to do in Deerfield (if you don't count the parking fee, that is).
And it's crowd-free too!
Nature is a big thing around Deerfield Beach, so if you're into natural beauty and exploration, this city is one of the best neighborhoods you can go to!
Take Arboretum at Constitution Park, for example.
The famous nature center features stunning grounds blanketed by more than 200 species of trees (including the Zombie Palm) and hundreds of flowers.
Dubbed the area's "tree zoo," this picturesque property protects its plants within nine acres, and visitors can also see bamboo, flowering tropical fruit, and other exotic species.
Another site to visit for a long nature walk is the lovely 43-acre Deerfield Island Park, a triangular-shaped haven for nature and wildlife.
The park features jungle-like trails, boardwalks, and mangrove swamps.
Just be sure to catch the ferry, free from neighboring Sullivan Park, as it's the only way to reach Deerfield Island Park.
It runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 10 am and 3 pm, so plan your trip accordingly.
Those arriving by private boat can park on one of the island's six slips.
Other sites you can explore within Deerfield Beach are South Florida Railway Museum, the Historic James and Alice Butler House, Deer Creek Golf Club, and more.
