Pompano Beach is in Broward County, just north of Fort Lauderdale, just the coastral strip is nice, so make sure you can afford it, though Miami Beach will not be cheap either.

Not too sure, but I think Pompano Beach will have a retiree community, as I said it is close the Fort Lauderdale, even Hollywood Beach, and Broward County in general has nice beaches.

In Miami Beach, there is the South Beach section which is dominated by tourists and the younger crowd, but there is middle and northern Miami Beach which I believe hosts a very mixed demographic and you can find some quiet sub-neighborhoods and streets.

I really think it is a question of personal cultural preference: do you want what to be nearer to Fort Lauderdale and what it has to offer culturally, or nearer to Miami and what it has to offer.

Pricewise they are about the same, though you may get about 10% more for your buck in Pompano Beach.

Hope this helps.

Neither is "suitable" for retirement. Boca is cheaper, safer, more retirees.

Boca would be a good choice. You can buy downtown and walk everywhere if you want. Prices are as low as I've seen in quite some time. Prices have leveled off and will begin to rise as more boomers retire to Fl. Recent articles in the paper said Fl. Is seeing a rebound in population, so I would start to get serious.
