Hi Anita,

You will not find a bigger fan than Weston than I. As such, I always recommend Weston.

But I have found this has given other communities an unfair, indirect label as if they are "not as good".

You mentioned Pembroke Pines. Pembroke Pines for example in an internationally based magazine (the name escapes me at the moment) was ranked one of the best communities to raise a family anywhere in the world!

But why not Weston?

The point of view was that Pembroke Pines gives you all that Weston does (their schools are excellent as well), but is much more affordable.

And I could find supporting data for many other communities as well.

For example, Weston's schools are all rated A- and above, all of them, but none appeared on America's top 1000. But many schools in Coral Gables (within Miami Greater Area) were!

In other words, I still will recommend Weston, but if your personal, subjective opinion tells you that Weston isn''t for you (I know a lot of people who live in Coral Gables that don't like Weston's 'too perfect' look and feel for example), you are in luck because South Florida in general is a wonderful, beautiful place to raise a family.

Aside from some exceptions, as exist in all cities, South Florida is all about varying degrees of good-amazing, and very, very few below that.

My advice is browse around, be objective and then subjective.

Good luck!
