Key Biscayne is an especially unique place and one of the best neighborhoods to live in within Miami, especially if you are raising a family. There are many excellent local restaurants and opportunities for outdoor activities, such as visiting the lighthouse, biking, and playing with your children at the local park. It is a very safe place to live in, allowing you to worry less about your family's safety (Actually not at all). It is a very tight knit community that will allow you to experience many cultures.

I lived there when I was in 7th grade and caught a bus from Key Biscayne to the mainland to Miami to go to school. It was a paradise for boating, fishing dolphin watching and treasure hunting under the water. The Key had 2 sides equally as interesting. The bay side looked to Miami beach and the ocean side looked to Cuba although you couldn't see it. If it rained it dried up immediately I remember that. Red snapper fishing was great. You could even sell the bigger ones at the Key Biscayne Hotel down the beach. Everything good!
I love Key Biscayne, its environment, its family friendliness. I always feel safe when walking at any time of the day and there are many activities to do. The beach is beautiful and it has been a blessing to live here. The restaurants are all fantastic. The only thing that I see as a disadvantage is its poor level of affordability.
