Welcome to Dania Beach

Dania Beach was the first official municipality to be incorporated into Broward County, Florida and is a beautiful city in South Florida. Originally named ‘Modello’ when it was a settlement, the community was incorporated in November 1904 and not long after, changed the name to ‘Dania’.

After the 1926 hurricane, Dania reincorporated itself into a city. In November 1998, Dania formally changed its name to Dania Beach although it is still known as and referred to as Dania.

Formerly known as the “Tomato Capital of the World” due to it’s vibrant farming community, Dania Beach came to be know as “The Antique Capital of the South” due to it’s vast antique community and marketplace. Antique Row has become not only a browser’s and shopper’s paradise, as well as a nationally recognized popular location for travel, but also the stores themselves are housed inside buildings steeped in the City’s history which include Broward County’s first movie theatre.

In 1927, the very first “Tomato Day Celebration” was held to raise funds for the new Dania Methodist Church.
