Pompano Beach is a city within Florida State, on the Atlantic coastline. Fort Lauderdale lies just towards the south. Pompano Beach is within the County of Broward.

The city is named for the pompano fish, a species found in abundance within the Atlantic ocean. The Tequesta Indians originally inhabited the area. They established villages and lived on the resources located in the ocean. The Tequesta way of life was replaced by the colonial culture of Europe. The Tequesta people were soon outnumbered by the Seminole Indians. With the completion of the railroad construction in 1896, the area became more accessible. 12 years after that, Pompano became integrated as a city. The city of Pompano Beach formed during 1947 as a combination between Pompano and the beach area which lies towards the east.
