I like the diversity and the park facilities in South Miami Heights. Additionally, most of the people are friendly and the community has some good public schools in the area. I would like the public transportation especially the bus routes and pick up designated spots to be increased in this area and improved.
My overall expericence of this neighborhood is pretty interesting.I like that fact that everything is near by from the fast food restaurants,the mall, shopping plazas, and gas stations.I've lived in this area since I was a born. It has changed alot over the years. For example, we dont have the same restarant, stores, and venues for too long.It always changes every few years. So, in since I never get bored with the same thing. I've enjoyed the area where I live, but on the other side i hate where I live.
