I have been a resident of Pembroke Pines since I was born and I truly think that it is one of the best places to live in South Florida! The area is a extremely family friendly, while also having something for every type of person to enjoy. It is a clean, safe city that serves as a little suburban paradise within the chaos surrounding South Florida. Pembroke Pines provides its residents with many excellent public schools for children to attend, as well as outstanding public spaces including parks, libraries, and recreation centers. It is in a convenient location that allows for a reasonable commute to bigger cities nearby, including Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Pembroke Pines manages to keep a great balance between the wonderful nature South Florida has to offer and the modern comforts of the suburbs with nature preserves, parks, and lakes commonly found throughout the city, along with the beautiful Everglades itself. There is no better place to live than in Pembroke Pines!

Pembroke Pines, FL is the perfect community to raise your kids in! The public schools have so much diversity and promote wellness. The community itself is very welcoming of all sorts of people with many different backgrounds. The majority of people residing in Pembroke Pines are of Hispanic/Latino and Black descent. Everything is close by, including the beaches! Aesthetically pleasing communities as well!
Pembroke Pines is a generally made up of family homes and schools, as well as a number of local businesses. There are a few major roads which run through Pembroke Pines, such as Sheridan St, and it is relatively close to I-75 for transportation purposes. The schools I have attended within the area have had good educational resources and are generally very safe, although some tend to be larger schools (like Flanagan High School). The schools also have good resources within the community, such as the library branch attached to Walter C. Young Middle School. Within Pembroke Lakes, the smaller subdivision of Pembroke Pines, most schools and local businesses are in walking distance of homes and each other. Traffic is never bad within the area and the worst crimes to take place are non-violent offenses such as stolen tires. It is a generally family friendly neighborhood, with most neighborhoods within Pembroke Pines having smaller parks for children to play at.
