Hi everyone,

My husband and I are desperately in need of help when it comes to figuring out WHERE in Southern Florida we should live.

We are life-long residents of Pennsylvania (suburban Philadelphia) and recently got the shock of our lives when my husband was offerred a promotion which requires a move to his company's Miami office.

We have two small children, so quality schools are important to us. Especially since the Pennsylvania town we're coming from ranks among the best in the state.

We're used to $300K home prices (gets you a 3 bedroom, 1800 sq ft house with a small backyard where we currently live.)

We are not bilingual, enjoy suburban living, and are really just looking for a safe and beautiful place to raise our children.

Florida residents...please respond with information on towns and sub-divisions that would be within a 45 minute commute to Miami, names and locations of quality schools (elementary is most important right now) and guidance on child/family friendly areas. I appreciate any help you can provide! The more information, the better!

Other then that, I'll just have to figure out how to explain 'no snow' to them once December rolls around

Thank you!!!
