Pompano Beach Reviews

No matter where you live in Pompano, you'll always be close to the beach. Regarding safety, there are hardly enough sidewalks throughout the city on non-major roads. Particularly the neighborhoods. Also, there is almost always some type of emergency with ambulances and police cars speeding by almost regularly. Majority of the residents here seem to be African-american or Hispanic, although this changes once you go east of the railroad tracks. The train can occasionally cause a pile up when it occasionally stops on the tracks. Apartments here are really overpriced with rent going as high as $3,000 a month in some places. Overall, it's not too bad living here, but there is obviously room for improvement.

Pompano Beach weather is warm to hot year round. Pompano have a breeze off the ocean. Pompano has several very nice safe parks, several major fast food restaurants to nice sit down restaurants. There are several new apartment building being built. US 1 is about 1+ mile from the public beach. Near the new beach piers we have a new restaurant open Beach House Pompano and parking garage. Hotel, shopping, restaurants being built. In the art district near I-95 it is revamped with New housing, new restaurants and new shopping area. In the summer there is a farmer's market. This area is 2+ miles to the beach. A lot of people live here 6 months.
My experience in this city is pretty alright. Depending where you live, you'll see more action occur like living near the beach. One thing I like is that, when you drive around town, there is always a general plaza full of many different stores to your convince. The environment is normally clean, with bustling plant growth. I believe Pompano Beach is a great place to find friends and have fun!
