Overall a great place to live. Quiet area but immediate access to everything you need. Malls, gyms, grocery stores, high ways eat. Living expenses are reasonable compared to that of Miami or west palm beach. The weather is great, the people are decent. I lived here for 5 years and before that driving distance. City is maintained in good conditions, no major damaged roads or abandoned homes. Schools are average as they all are in south florida but there are many options to choose from such as charter, private or public. Sunrise is about an hour away from Miami which has two major universities, FIU and UM. Also you have access to community colleges such as Broward College.
The neighborhood has lots of schools, churches, restaurants, and big corporations, and it offers a variety of jobs and entertainment. It displays the perfect balance for a family to live happily. Not to mention, the beach is nearby (less than 30 mins away). It's very clean, friendly and relatively safe!
