I have lived in Miramar Fl for 8 years and the main reasons why I love the area is completely because its quite, the neighbors are friendly, and the schools around are walking distance, and all of the 8 years that i have lived there. Police enforcement was called only one time because they saying hello to the children playing outside one hot summer day. Great neighborhood!

What intrigued me about Miramar was the many locations tourist or locals could go to buy clothing, food, and other necessities. Near any places you would go to there would be a lot of available stores. If in need of a restock, or a place to hangout with one your friends there's various place's to choose from. As an example, I know living on campus in college can take a toll on financial expenses. Miramar provides more of a calm, somewhat well-kept environment. It is in the suburbs. Even though there isn't exotic locations to travel to. Miramar makes it a habit to place you right at home. Plus if you are thinking about having the option to move to this certain area. This city has many public, private, and religious schools to choose from. Most are A's and other's are B's and C's.
Miramar is a city that is up and coming. There is a lot to appreciate about this city, from the diversity, to the new construction projects that makes things more efficient, to its delicious restaurants, charming parks, and easygoing shopping plazas. This is certainly a great area to raise children. Sports and schools are a big part of this city’s draw. Where the city falters is in its lack of opportunity for young people, as housing is too expensive, good paying entry level jobs are scarce, and nightlife is almost inexistent. My recommendation is that anyone starting a young family may find comfort here, but young adults might not return after leaving for university.
