I have lived in Coconut Creek for 19 years and would not want to live anywhere else! Coconut Creek has really shaped my personality and connected me to a great number of people that I will remember for the rest of my life. There are numerous restaurants, parks, and a hospital within a 3 mile radius no matter where you live! School for me has always been a great experience and safety has never been a problem! In addition, there is so much diversity in Coconut Creek! Overall, Coconut Creek is absolutely amazing, definitely my favorite city in Broward County hands down!

I love Coconut Creek, specifically the cleanliness, beauty, community involvement, and selection of shopping and restaurants. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is due to the congestion from them continuing to add more and more residential living which is crowding our streets and causing traffic delays.
Ive been living in Coconut creek since I was a child. Ive have graduated from elementary, middle, and high school in Coconut creek and they all are safe, academically challenging and overall compared to other cities, have a higher test score percentage. Other than the schools the community is safe, fun, and friendly. Its clean and a major success we have is being environmentally friendly.
