Pompano Beach Reviews
Rating 3.59 out of 5 246 reviews
Pompano Beach is drug infested unless you live near the beach. If you do live near beach, or own a boat, all electronics and anything in your yard will get stolen.Noone can afford to live near the beach. Us who owned a home in Pompano Beach for 30 years know our neighborhoods have declined to constant vigilance to keep predators and drug addicts away from our homes. Don’t leave anything on porch or a hose curled up in front yard. All things stolen. Hookers associated with drug houses everywhere. Cant take a walk, early morning noon or night. you’ll find quickly that a paranoid drug addict will think you are suspicious, and probably attack you. Thats what happened to me. 30 years of owning a home where I raised my son. I was physically attacked 3 times and called police, nothing has been done. I went to court for restraining order, still in limbo. Dont raise children here.Must private/home school. Neighborhood deteriorated to crime & drugs.My 30 year opinion: Stay away!
The tourist areas of pompano beach is very beautiful. The city has such great opportunities and potential. It would be nice if the school system was better. That is, better grading while providing a private school feeling to public schools. I also wish that there was more affordable housing. Most individuals make a low income and are unable to afford pricey real estate, in order to live in a well kept community. Also I wish private schools were more affordable and they had more flexibility with programs offered for assistance. Also, I wish that they would rebuild communities to make it more beautiful and inviting. Also building more play grounds, parks and recreational areas. Build more outdoor movies, in order to promote more bonding and family time. Also, building more dog parks that would attract families and a single individual to interact with others. I wished that there was more family oriented places to visit, such as a mini Disney world. That would make us very very happy
Pompano Beach is a beautiful city in sunny South Florida and it is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in South Florida. The city of Pompano is a melting-pot of so many different cultures. Pompano Beach natives really enjoy embracing those cultures, whether you're Hispanic, Caribbean, Asian, etc. There are so many things to do for fun like: enjoying a night at the Seminole Casino, taking a trip with your family to butterfly world, or visiting the local marketplace if you want to enjoy a more native experience. As with anywhere else, Pompano Beach has its negatives. Although it's rough around the edges, I wouldn't want to call anywhere else home.
As anywhere in florida, pompano is just barely teetering the line of livable most days. There’s a lot of potholes, construction and prostitution. Idk if that’s something people want in the review but there it is. It’s not all bad though, a lot of cooks things are in pompano, like the record rack, a music store near the beach. Or the many parks littering the small city. It’s full of ... interesting people to say the least. I honestly don’t know what life would be like if i didn’t live there.
Pompano Beach is just a few minutes away from the beach and is a pretty nice neighborhood depending where in pompano, close to Palm Air the city is well maintain, close to a local prison and around that area a homeless shelter is located so therefore a lot of homeless hang around the prison area.
A great choice to live! Friendly neighborhoods. Many options to eat delicious food. Some minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches.
I’ve lived in Florida all my life. However, from when I was born to when I was about five, I moved around to a lot of different cities. My family and I truly felt at home when we moved into a house in Pompano Beach when I was 6. We have lived there ever since and love the proximity to beaches, shopping centers, and supermarkets. The city isn’t too big, but not too small, not too loud, but not too quiet. I guess you could say it has the perfect ratio, or the best of both worlds. So, if you are considering moving somewhere that is family friendly, retirement friendly, or even vacation friendly, Pompano Beach is the place to go. One change I’d like to see is more attention going towards “less developed” neighborhoods. This is a prominent problem in many cities. However, as a resident, I’ve seen a change in the city of Pompano and am thrilled to know the city is making a change.
Variety of individuals,activities and places to be! Boasting a large coast and any parks throughout the city, I beleive anyone caan find a fit. The only complaint I could have is that public areas are not frequently remodeled or taken care of.
This city is alright, there are a few things to do around northern Pompano and the beach it self is pretty nice.I enjoy the boardwalk and restaurants around it as well
I would say that Pompano Beach is known for the buses and the homeless people that are present in Pompano. The apartments there got way expensive over the years. A lot of construction if happening there right now. One good thing about it is that there is a wide variety of food choices.
I love living in Pompano being close to the beach is a huge plus. However, there isn't a downtown area in Pompano Beach itself. You have to drive downtown if you want to go out. You need a car to live here because you have to drive to; work, school, shopping. That would be the biggest downside to living here; nothing is within walking distance. Like any city, there are good parts of town, and there are bad. Driving five minutes from one place to another you can see the difference in wealth.
Pompano Beach has opportunities to be great. There could be more resources and help to tend to the homeless.
Pompano Beach is a city that offers multiple resources and presents a strong infrastructure to its people through the means of athletic fields, beaches, waterfront parks, libraries, and playgrounds for children. However, one thing to criticize would be the abundance of strip malls--I believe that the city could work to find more innovative ways to implement retail stores and restaurants. Reason being, strip malls do not contribute to the culture of a given place and most of the time, they are occupied by big brand names. I strongly believe that such spaces could be dedicated to providing resources for local communities and NGOs--therefore, giving back directly to the community and encouraging community activism. For only then, could diversity flourish--and diversity is a necessity for a thriving city. This could be translated to an opportunity to demolish the divide between citizens of Pompano Beach and work towards a more inclusive atmosphere for all--regardless of their backgrounds.
Pompano Beach is a vibrant city in South Florida. It has some great schools like Pompano Beach High School which is recognized nationally as an amazing school. It is full of many job opportunities and many great people. Overall, it's a great city.
Fine enough town. A bit smaller but I like it better that way. City contractors seem to want to build up the town more though so be aware of that in the coming years. Pompano Beach High School was the main reason I stayed in town; easily the best magnet school for incoming high schoolers to apply to.
Pompano Beach is a wonderful neighborhood with very little crime. The people are kind, there are plenty of public resources available to it's inhabitants like parks.
Pompano Beach is one if the most diverse cities in south Florida. We also have clean family friendly beaches. Commute time during the week picks up from in the morning from 6am-9am and in the afternoon from 5pm-7pm.
