Can you describe how Pompano Beach looks and feels for a person that has never lived here?

Asked by Halley S., New York, NY Mon Apr 23, 2007

Do residents maintain their homes and lawns? Are there dramatic differences between different neighborhoods or zip codes? Is there a dominant architecture throughout the city?

I like Pompano Beach in general. It's quiet and nice on the east side in an old Florida way. But the schools in Florida in general leave a lot to be desired. If education is part of your priority do yourself a favor and research the area at This was our criteria in Florida and finding a school then the neighborhood has worked for us time and again. Of course, you will find that the district with the great school is often the expensive one. No child left behind and all that ...

Yes to ALL the above...what it really boils down to is this..."What's important to you where you want to live?" With that answered... now we have some direction to go...LOL hopefully you've bought by now since you asked this why back in April 2007... although prices have dropped dramatically!

As a reluctant transplant from Canada and now a permanent resident of Pompano Beach my answer is both complex and personal. When you live in a large city like Montreal the change is enormous.
The body and the brain takes years to catch up with the sounds of tranquility. Being hooked on a structured exhausting schedule and life style of a typical northern city the dependance slowly fades.
Just like the pealing of the long sleeved shirt and tie. The shoes go next. Before you know it you become to smell like all the idiots running naked on the beach at 6 in the morning wearing only a shorts and a heavy dose of sun protection.
Soon you will change your early morning grunt to idiotic expressions as you pass a strangers like have a nice day.
Soon you will discover that you become the victim of arriving late on appointments, using excuses like the bridge was up or how congested the traffic was. Before you know it you start talking about the high tides and the sea glass you collected on your last walk. You start comparing your body weight and muscles that you develop in the local gym . You start meaningful relationships in Publix as you discuss the disturbing cost of food. By now you are probably catching on. Life in Pompano Beach is boring. As a matter of fact i try to tell most everyone not to live in Pompano Beach. God forbid if the secret was out everybody would want to live here.

Pompano Beach is a wonderful community offering a huge diversity in housing ranging from oceanfront condominiums, to affordable 55+ single family homes. Young, old, and growing families alike will find any amenity or recreation they may desire including golf, rollerblading, and the home of the
Goodyear "blimp"! Shopping, restauarants, or quiet beachside cafes await you and your family! Enjoy!

Pompano Beach is an excellent city in which to live and work. The eastern part of Pompano Beach is on the ocean and has many condominiums with excellent ocean and intracoastal waterway views. The grounds are well-kept and manicured, usually by local landscaping companies. The dominant architecture east of the bridge is 1970s/1980s highrises with garage and lot parking. West of the intracoastal bridge (or off of the barrier island), you'll find many shops as well as ranch-style houses in quiet, attractive neighborhoods.
