Dania Beach

Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Broward County  /  Dania Beach
Dania Beach is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city's population was 29,639. It is part of the South Florida metropolitan area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census. Dania Beach is the location of one of the largest jai alai frontons in the United States, Dania Jai Alai and Casino. It was formerly the location for two amusement centers; one named Boomers! (formerly Grand Prix Race-O-Rama), which housed the Dania Beach Hurricane roller coaster, and the other being Pirate's World amusement park, which was featured in Barry Mahon's Thumbelina. It is also home to the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum.HistoryDania Beach was the first official municipality to be incorporated into Broward County. Starting as a settlement called Modello, it was incorporated in November 1904. Most of the 35 residents were of Danish ancestry, and they changed the name of the town to Dania. On January 4, 1926, Dania voted to become part of its larger and more prosperous neighbor, Hollywood. But after the September 1926 Miami hurricane decimated Hollywood’s fortunes, Dania reincorporated itself into a city. Some areas decided to stay within Hollywood, leading to Dania's current disjointed city boundaries. On November 1998, Dania formally changed its name to Dania Beach; however Dania is still commonly used to refer to the city. In 2001, the city annexed several unincorporated areas of Broward County increasing the population by about 3,600 people.
