Tamarac is a very friendly neighborhood. You see bikers, dog walkers, and groups of children, on the sidewalks. All the schools are above the "C" level. Safety is good because there is a hospital on university drive. Not a lot of crime happens in Tamarac. The nightlife is family-friendly. You have sawgrass lanes if you want to go bowling with your family. Right down the street is a roller skating rink. If you want to go to that rink go in the day when there are no teenagers it's less crowded. There are numerous places to eat with foods from all over, perfect for dates. I would not change anything about Tamarac!

I have lived in Tamarac my whole life and love it! It is a small surburb outside of the city of Fort Lauderdale. It is a nice and quite neighborhood that is great for both families and retirees. The location is in the mist of a lot of surrounding cities which cuts down the average communing time. Housing is affordable and ranges around $200,000 to $500,000. New homes are being built continuously. The community constantly has event and activities offered for all ages. In addition, the city is approving for the better such as updated buildings, new parks, new landscaping, bringing in more businesses and so much more! As the city's moto says, "The city for your life!"
