Deerfield Beach Is the Best Neighborhood in Broward, and Here's Why
Welcome to Deerfield Beach, the best neighborhood in Broward. Back in 1890, a group of people settled in a field where countless deer roamed, so they named it Deerfield, duh, right? Well, come some 40 years later, tourism was down, and the people of Deerfield decided now might be a good time to mention THEY HAVE A BEACH! They chose wisely, because adding the word "beach" to literally anything makes it sound so much better; go ahead, try it.
Winn-Dixie. Winn-Dixie BEACH.
Hand Sanitizer. Hand Sanitizer BEACH.
As you can imagine people heard this, probably in a saloon or washing their clothes in a river, and decided that the place sounded a lot better than where they were, so they relocated.
And then all frickin' hell broke loose.
Prior to the name change, Deerfield was known for its pineapples, tomatoes, green beans, and squash. Afterward, it became known for its beautiful beaches, tourist-attracting settings, and squash. Deerfield Beach has feel to it; it's got character; it has secrets!
It's where BREAKING BAD WAS FILMED!
OK, it wasn't, but it's still the best neighborhood in Broward, and here's why.
Quiet Water Park has a Ski Rixen cable water skiing system, one of only 79 in the world, just 79! Save the ski-riven cable water skiing systems! Support your local ski-riven cable water skiing (takes deep breath) system!
Deerfield Beach is home to one of only, OK, you got the point. At first glance, this contraption is filled under "nah, I'm good," but once you give it a whirl, it's pretty badass. The one drawback is if you fall off in the middle, you have to climb up the side of the lake and walk your happy ass back to the beginning.
Deerfield Beach pier is home to the $2 date.
It's just a buck each to stroll down the Deerfield Beach pier, one of the most beautiful places in Broward. The pier makes for a great date, place to fish with your dad, or even a date while fishing with your dad, but that just seems a little weird, and your chances of getting a kiss drastically decrease.
The Renaissance Fair is superawesome.
Next taking place February 8 to March 16, the annual Deerfield Beach Renaissance Festival returns to the area. Wenches, Robin Hood, Gypsy dancers, and normal dudes who make you call them "Lorde," this festival toes the line between "creepy" and "festive" pretty perfectly.
