Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Downward Tourism Trend: Broward County's Tourism efforts, as measured by number of hotel visitors, are suffering just as Las Vegas is seeing very positive changes and results in key demographics, including Millennials

Downward Tourism Trend: Broward County's Tourism efforts are suffering just as Las Vegas is seeing positive changes and results in key demographics, including
millennials. 

As you can see for yourself when checking the numbers recorded by the very people whose government job it is to promote tourism in Broward County, and pay close attention to what those hotel visitor numbers actually are -and are revealing- Sunny.org, the Greater Fort 
Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, the trend in Broward County is neither positive or encouraging. https://www.sunny.org/vital-stats/

There has been a DECREASE in average hotel occupancy for 9 of the last 12 months for which there are records; one month was ZERO, so I counted that as a negative.

Meanwhile in Las Vegas... The Associated Press has news of a very different kind: 
 Report: Las Vegas Draws More Millennial, First-time Visitors

A third of Las Vegas tourists last year were millennials — those between 18 to 35 — up from less than a quarter in 2015, according to a report commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and released Wednesday...

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois IrmĂŁos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois IrmĂŁos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele BĂŒndchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
