Pompano Beach, FL is known for its beaches, marinas, offshore coral reef, and numerous dive sites. The long Pompano Beach Pier stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Fort Lauderdale. When I traveled in the area in November-December 2020 businesses were open, people used the community park and sport arenas, kids attended schools, and many folks prepared themselves for Christmas.
Some places here and there were closed, though, and shops seemed less crowded than usual. There were no tourists around, and over all one could certainly sense that this year had been different.
