It's a city that is a melding of the old and the new where creative builders are taking advantage of every foot of land along the waterways.
Lighthouse Point (located in the northern part of Broward County) sits under the beam of the famed Hillsboro Lighthouse for which it was named. Deerfield Beach is to the north, Pompano Beach to the south, Federal Highway to the west and the Intracoastal Waterway to the east.
