Pompano Beach is rapidly becoming the place to be as its close 'enough' to everything yet far enough away to be safe and quiet. I am born and raised down here and would not have it any other way just as my parents have resided in Pompano for over 40 years.

As with most cities there are better and worse areas within the city, but east of US1 is a great bet. I have lived in Miami, Boca, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, and Pompano along with Tampa bay and St Pete on the west coast and Pompano is that nice in-between. If you want a nice night out you are a short drive to Atlantic Avenue in Delray, or Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale, or even South Beach yet you have a short drive to the store, to the beach and plenty of sports and activities for your children to engage in.

There is a small city 'within' Pompano of sort, Lighthouse Point and they offer a great amount of clubs, camps, and sports programs which your kids can participate in just as I did for a small fee for living outside of the city. You may also want to look at homes within Lighthouse point as its an extremely safe and quiet area with their own fire department and police force. Pompano also has a great aquatic center and tennis courts which offer great activities for kids, overall you seem like you know what you are looking for and already did some research but wanted to be reassured of your decision, and you can rest assured you are looking in the right area.

If there is anything I may be able to help you with or any specific programs for your kids you want more information on please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks and have a great rest of your day!

Loving your pet just might be the answer. It has been documented in medical research how a pet can be a positive on your well being. Many elderly people find that the companionship of a pet is vital. I have experienced the difficulties of finding a place for my mom when my dad passed away.. Selling her home was difficult enough in this market. Finding a place that would accept her dog was even more of a challenge. I salute all the buildings that welcome pets. Their decision to embrace this need in their rules and regulations singles them out. I know because I paid a premium price to place my mom in one of these buildings. The sales and turn over of pet friendly buildings is active and is doing just fine. The demand is there and the values indicate it.
I know that there are ways of breaking the barrier. A note from the doctor works for some. It however isolates a pet owner from the rest of the neighbors and make them feel outcasts.
Just an added note. Treat your pet with kindness but observe the rights of others. More buildings would accept pets if this was true. Take it from me my mom lives in a pet friendly building the co-operation is just wonderful.
