I have lived in the Kendall area for the majority of my life. As time has gone on, it has expanded so much: shops, homes, entertainment, everything! Anything you want you, you can get it here. But with all the homes and schools in the area, it doesn't have that city life atmosphere. Traffic and commuting has really increased, as I would say is the only negative of the area.

Kendall is just a pricey version of Homestead. There are mostly Hispanic/Latino residents. I would love to see an improvement in traffic delays. The traffic is ridiculous. Another thing that I did not enjoy from my experience of living in Kendall is the lack of friendly neighbors. There is a kind of unwelcoming vibe if you are not a White Latino. On the other hand, one of Kendall's best features is the wide variety of restaurants to choose from. There is a myriad of restaurants to choose from with varying cultural backgrounds and the food served is delicious. Overall, if you do not mind rush hour traffic and not having a relationship with neighbors, then Kendall is a nice place to settle down in. However, a lot of residents are leaving in search of a more affordable living area.
I've lived here for quite some time and even though the area is very pricey, it is well worth it. The job opportunities here are a little scarce if you are not willing to go outside of your comfort zone. The neighbors are very friendly, at least where I live, and the schools here are some of the best in Florida. It feels very safe here and there are many activities to do in the night time. There is a little lack in diversity but its not uncommon to see different ethnicities. One of the biggest drawbacks is the traffic, though. Just to go 0.1 miles from my house it takes me around 15 minutes. Other than that though the houses here are nice and you can make this place home very easily, especially if you have a family.
