Just north of Fort Lauderdale, you’ll find Florida’s warmest welcome in Pompano Beach. Settling the town around 1896, the families of railwaymen Frank Sheen and George Butler were its first official residents. Pompano Beach’s name comes from a silvery, toothless species of fish that Frank Sheen had had for dinner one night.
Pompano Beach was incorporated as a town in 1908, and then as a city in 1947. The town grew with the Baby Boomers after World War II, and snowbirds flew to Pompano Beach to escape the bitter winters up north. In 2008, the City of Pompano Beach commemorated its one hundredth anniversary.
The white Kester Cottages at Founder’s Park, their green shutters adorned with cutouts of playing card suits, hearken back to a time shortly after the city’s founding. Once sold to locals for the princely sum of $950 and often rented out to tourists, they now house the Pompano Beach Historical Society and its exhibits from the late 1930s.
Pompano Beach still celebrates its past with its historic downtown, but it also savors the present with many activities and festivities—including the St. Coleman’s Italian Festival, the Holiday Yuletide Parade, and the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival. Get your lawn chairs and picnic basket and bring the kids out for Friday night family entertainment at the Great Lawn. If you’re feeling adventuresome, why not freestyle jump, climb the Sky Ladder, or play Parkour Blox at the Sky Zone on 2nd Street? Head to Pompano Park, where you can take a chance on harness racing, one-armed bandits, or the power of your poker face…if you’re feeling lucky.

With rugged accordion shutters from Genesis, Phoenix Windows & Doors will defend your Palm Aire Gardens home against hurricane-force gusts. Their exceptional performance during the strongest storms make them a wise investment for Pompano Beach homeowners. Because of their compact design, they fold away neatly and inconspicuously—yet they can be ready for a hurricane in just a few short moments.

In a hurricane, a strong wind will pick up loose objects that were never meant to be airborne—and hurl them indiscriminately through the air, where they can hit your home and property. Accordion shutters from Phoenix Windows & Doors will shield your windows from breakage by flying debris.
