You can't get into some of the neighborhoods without one. There are also many apartments in Weston that you can look into that are gated but you will be able to get in and speak with the office without a realtor. Here is a web site to check out

Oh, Drive time from Weston to Miami (my husband works in Coconut grove) is on average 45 minutes to an hour. All others mentioned in my post and in crisp444's would be a little less. Good Luck
I would not consider Cooper City rural. Southwest Ranches has a rural look to it, but isn't truly rural either. There is really no such thing as truly rural in Broward County.

To the OP-If you want an active community with less bad schools try Weston, Cooper City, Davie, Coral Springs and Pembroke Pines. If you want acutal good schools stay out of Florida.

I like seeing people on horses. We don't get this in Weston, but just cross South, over to Southwest Ranches, or East into Davie, and there are plenty of riders there.

I didn't even see horses on the roads growing up in Indiana. I read somewhere that Davie McDonalds has a hitching post?

The "downtown main street" of Davie is set up as a western town. It is cute. They also have a rodeo right there. I don't know about Mcdonalds having a hitching post but it would make sense. I have only been on that road once. For South Fl standards the areas of Davie, Southwest Ranches and to a lesser extent Cooper City look rural to me. The nice thing about living in these areas is that you can have a county feel with plenty of shopping a few minutes away.

Amen to that Tankev. I think it may be too much of a slow down for me, but it seems the kids would be safe. Oh and don't think that I have forgotten about that girls night out. As soon as I get to town, I'm going to hit you up.
