Relocating from NYC to Miami at the end of August with baby, what is a good family neighborhood?

Asked by AL, Brooklyn, NY Wed Jul 24, 2013

My husband and I are relocating from NYC to Miami at the end of August with our 1 year old. He will be working close to the airport. We are staying for one year so we are looking for a rental in a safe family neighborhood. Any suggestion? Thanks!

If you are looking for a great safe neighborhood with lots of parks and playgrounds for babies and toddlers then I would say Sunny Isles Beach is a perfect place and for a long run there's a great school with excellent rating. It's 30 min drive to either MIA or FLL.
Let me know if you would like to explore rental options there.
Best regards,

Hello Al;

Moving to Miami will be an exciting adventure. Miami is a great city to live and play. Not just adults, but children as well. We have many incredible parks, beaches, the everglades and a bunch more...I am sure that you and your family will be very happy. Now, relocation is always difficult, especially when you live in NY, and looking for a home is just as difficult. I am sure that I am may take away some of the stress.

Please call me to chat in order to better assist you. Throwing neighborhoods out to you will not be the best way to help you find a home.

Thank you,

AL, if you're looking to rent, you'll probably want to consider Doral. There are a lot of great options here, and we're not that far from the airport. A lot will depend on your budget... we have everything from basic apartments to million dollar homes. Rentals start at about $1100 for a basic one bedroom.
