I recently moved here, from Chicago, to attend Nova Southeastern University and I can honestly say that I love the area. The people here are extremely friendly and super approachable. Although the area always has some type of construction happening, its a relatively clean city. The biggest issue I have with the city is the price. It is fairly expensive around this area. But, the good definitely outweighs the bad. Of course the weather doesn’t hurt either! I look forward to spending the next couple of years in Davie in my ultimate goal of becoming an Optometrist.

Davie is a wonderful area to live in! Very family friendly area with bountiful opportunities to explore southern culture. Demographics tend to be shifted to a much higher Caucasian percentage which tends to alienate other cultural communities to the surrounding cities. However, this is not a profound prejudice—simply and unfortunate pattern that most culture-valuing residents would like to see fade.
I have resided in Davie, Florida for well over 10 years. I have seen it develop from barren grassy fields into a tourist attraction for many visitors and a shopping euphoria for its residents. If there is ANYTHING you can think of...Davie, Florida (particularly on university drive) has it! Everything you need is literally on a long street filled with EVERY and anything ranging from grocery, clothing, electronic, vitamin, shoe, fabric and craft stores; plus many more! There is a downside however, since this is a popular shopping town, unfortunately traffic is HORRENDOUS. It can take you 15 minutes to drive three blocks. And the parking? Let's just says it's like a scene out of the hunger games... completely cut throat and intense as consumers scrimmage and scanvenge for a parking space.
