I love living in Southwest Ranches. My largest issue with it is mailbox locations and lack of recycling. However, the magazines they send are spectacular.

Great, friendly town. Its very different from other parts of South Florida. I mean, where else do you get to see horses walking around? It runs under a very small, but friendly government and has many parks throughout town.
Best city to live in. Far enough from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, but close enough where they can easily be driven to in less than an hour. It has a country feel to it without having the closest grocery store an hour out. People out here have land with cattle, and stables with horses. It's not like hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland, but rather maybe 50 acres with a few cows. Or a 5 acre home with a stable and 4 horses.
