The City of Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier is just under 1,000ft long and attracts thousands of fishermen and visitors each year.
Info: The City of Deerfield Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean about 3 miles south of Boca Raton and 20 miles north of Fort Lauderdale. Incorporated in 1925, the town of Deerfield was named for the large number of deer that once grazed along the Hillsboro River. The name later changed to Deerfield Beach to emphasise the fact to visitors that it had a beach. Due to a thriving tourist industry and a proliferation of new hotels and motels along the shoreline, in 1951 the town became the City of Deerfield Beach.
The spectacular beach at Deerfield is nestled in between the Hillsboro and the Boca Raton inlets, which provide surfers with the best waves in south Florida. Sand volleyball courts and recreational areas are located on the north side of the pier. The International Fishing Pier is a renovated board walk pier with a shop for renting fishing rods and stocks live, fresh and frozen bait, tackle, fishing accessories, ice and t-shirts.
The Dity of Deerfield Beach Arboretum is an incredible oasis with over two hundred different species of trees, over one hundred of which are palms, which are native to Florida’s hot, humid climate. The Arboretum also contains a rain forest area with tropical plants and a half-mile long walking trail.
