Miami Shores is such an acclaimed safety neighborhood. There are constant citizen patrols circulating the neighborhood and the neighbor relations are close as everybody socializes whenever we see one another. The neighborhood is close to a Catholic Church, an elementary and a high school as well as a University. So naturally, all the neighborhoods children go to school together as well as church with one another. There's no other place like Miami Shores.
I like how pretty the place is, and it feels pretty safe. There sure is a lot to do around her as well, considering it's intertwined with Biscayne and 2nd Ave. The living expenses are a bit pricey, but that is to be expected in Miami. Overall, pretty good.
