Welcome to Plantation

Located in central Broward County, Plantation is one of Florida's greenest cities. The community's dedication to preserving trees and other greenery has earned it the prestigious Sterling Tree City USA award. In addition to being an ideal destination for leisure and relaxation, Plantation is also a well-known center for business and commerce. The city is home to three thriving business districts and a wide selection of shopping destinations.

If you want to experience Plantation's breathtaking scenery, you can explore one of the city's many parks or play a game of golf at the local golf club. Plantation's golf course and club is the newest golf facility in South Florida. The club is located on a historic piece of property with beautiful views and natural wetlands. Although the grounds are open to the public throughout the year, it's a good idea to call in reservations in advance.

Plantation also has a number of parks that are open to visitors including the family friendly Fig Tree Park. In addition to a brand new playground, Fig Tree Park has two baseball fields, picnic tables, basketball courts and a pavilion. It's a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon relaxing and enjoying the outdoors with your family. If you are more interested in an adventure than relaxing at a local park, head to the Plantation Botanical Gardens. After you are done looking at local trees and plant life, check out the nearby Hoffman Plantation Library and the Plantation Historical Society Museum. Remember to check the museum's hours of operation if you plan to visit.

Although Plantation is renowned for its scenery, it's not just for nature lovers. People who love dining and shopping will find plenty of things to do in the city and the surrounding areas. The Westfield Broward Mall has over 120 retail stores that include Macy's, Sears and Dillard's. The Fountains Shoppes of Distinction is another great shopping destination worth visiting. The open-air shopping plaza offers a variety of retail stores, entertainment options and restaurants.

The city's public transportation system makes getting around Plantation simple and convenient. Hotels are available for visitors of all budgets, tastes and travel styles. Whether booking a suite at a luxury hotel or a room at a local inn, reserve your accommodations early. Plantation is part of the Miami and Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area, so the region can sometimes get busy.
