Along the beautiful Atlantic coastline is where you will find "Florida's Warmest Welcome," Pompano Beach, with warm ocean waters, sandy beaches, and a multitude of activities waiting to be discovered. The name derives from the Florida pompano, a fish found off the coast and the town Pompano was first incorporated in 1908. After merging with a newly formed beach municipality in 1947, the town was renamed Pompano Beach. The city has plenty to offer, from great entertainment, to fantastic recreational activities and outstanding shopping.
