Wellington, FL is a great suburban family orientated area to grow up in. With many great neighborhoods and A rated schools, it's hard to not want to live here. Though it is a great place to start a family, it is far from the beach which can deter people from living here! On the bright side, Wellington is famous for its equestrian lifestyle and famous equestrian celebrities who live here, like Bill Gates and his daughter!

Rate It!
Wellington is diverse both economically as well as ethnicity. You could be at the local supermarket running into Anyone! The school crossing guard, the olympian, the heiress. People can be themselves right here.
There are so many family fun activities. You don't need a family to enjoy. Wellington is big on volunteers. Always a way to be involved in this community.
You do see where your tax dollars are going.
Best place to live!
Wellington is a suburban neighborhood with low crime, great schools, nice green spaces and friendly neighbors. Wellington becomes a little overcrowded during equestrian season but all small neighborhoods in South Florida are inundated with seasonal people in the winter! Overall, a great place to live.
