The city is known as the home of Gulfstream Park (horse racing and casino) and Mardi Gras Casino, a greyhound racing track which hosts the World Classic. The area surrounding those two major places created a sizable downtown financial district, with offices for a number of banks and brokerage houses, plus many restaurants. Together with neighbouring Hollywood, Florida, it is a popular centre for snowbird tourists and migrants from the Canadian province of Québec,[8] for whom it is called 'the most Southern French Canadian City'.[9]
