Plantation didn't come into its own as a city until the 1970s and by then New York-style pizza was the most popular pizza in North America. The pizzerias that opened in Plantation went against the current though, produced the type of pizza they knew and loved. It's the pizza that Plantation is now known for, which is thick crust. Whoever the first person to make a thick crust pizza was, and that's a well-argued point between the Italians and the Greeks, they certainly knew how to combine simple ingredients to create a flavorsome meal. Maybe that person made the first pizza out of necessity or maybe it was a full-blown moment of culinary creativity, but what they did was invent something that is loved the world over and eaten by millions every day.

Is there any other reason to make the twenty-five-mile trip north from Plantation to Boca Raton than to say you've been in the mouth of the rat? Yes, there is. Boca Raton has as much going for it as Fort Lauderdale, if not more. The Boca Raton Museum of Art is a good place to start if you want an indoor activity. For some time by the ocean, head to Red Reef Park or the tranquil Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden.

Is Florida's Hollywood anything like the city of the same name in California? In a word, no, but while it doesn't have the same glitz and glam, it's still worth making the fifteen-mile trip south from Plantation to go there. Take a stroll along the Hollywood Beach Promenade to start the day, then flit back in time with a visit to the Monastery of St Bernard de Clairvaux which looks historic but isn't. For a quiet retreat, try the Anne Kolb Nature Center where there are trails running through the mangrove swamps. If you don't get eaten by mosquitos or alligators, add eating pizza at Capone's Italian Pizzeria on Hollywood Boulevard to your agenda.
