My bf and I are in our mid-20s considering making the move from Philly to the Fort Lauderdale area. Looking for a smaller beach town with a decent crowd of people in their 20s and 30s. Will rent initially but will consider buying in the future. Any suggestions on towns near Fort Lauderdale? Young professionals, beachy, nightlife but still pretty chill, safe. Thank you!

Have you ever been to Ft Lauderdale?
I would never call it a small beach town.

Yes I have. Looking for towns in the FL area so if there are other towns in that general area. Or if you have any insight on FL too. My company has a branch in Fort Lauderdale, are there any surrounding towns in commuting distance?

There are a ton of neighboring cities... but you're confusing me as you're saying you want a small beach town.. that kind of thing no longer exists in South Florida.
What's your housing budget?

Ok, so remove the 'small'.

$1500/month rent

LOL!!! OK!!!

That budget will get you a decent one bedroom apartment.
Do you already have jobs (suggestions will be based on commute)?
I get your company has a branch in Ft Lauderdale.. but what about your bf?

You should look into Delray Beach, just North of Fort Laudy. They have a pretty good scene up there. You'll be close to Boca and Fort Lauderdale as well for nightlife and such.

Well, the OP is asking for a small, beachy town near Fort Lauderdale

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is very nice, but it is not always full of young people.

The beach part of Pompano Beach is nice. The beach part of Deerfield Beach is nice too.

Not a bad call, but commuting from Delray to Fort Lauderdale would be a chore.

I would just find something in FTL proper for $1,500. There are decent options.

When I said 'small', I'm not looking for a city the size of say Philly.
