It’s name is derived from the fish,Pompano. On July 3, 1908, a new municipality was incorporated in what was then Dade County: the Town of Pompano.John R. Mizell was elected the first mayor. In 1915, Broward County was established, with a northern boundary at the Hillsboro Canal. Thus, within eight years, Pompano had been in three counties.

Following the population boom due to World War II, in 1947 the City of Pompano merged with the newly-formed municipality on the beach and became the City of Pompano Beach.

Pompano High School was founded in 1928, in Pompano Beach, Florida, to address the growing need for secondary education in northeastern Broward County.
The school’s sports teams were called the Beanpickers after the part-time job that many of the school’s students had in the formerly agricultural area of the time. The Beanpicker was also the name of the school’s yearbook, which was first published in 1943.

The city host the annual Pompano Beach Seafood festival and the Holiday Boat Parade.

A substantial seasonal population also spends its winter in the area.

With state of the art design, Celebration Bermuda fairways and TifEagle greens, the Pines will most assuredly become a golf destination for residents and visitors to the region.

Love the coast? The recently redevoloped beach and pier area is beautiful. A fun place to go to the beach, with plenty of parking!
