I'm moving to Miami this summer. I've got a job at Barry University and I am going to buy a house. No kids, just me and my wife. Can you tell me about Biscayne Park and Miami Shores? Also, can you tell me anything about the areas just north of Biscayne Park and Miami Shores, in the southern part of North Miami? I'm also considering some other areas more distant from Barry.

Biscayne Park and Miami Shores are great communities, both of which provide parks, lots of trees, and beautiful homes. Biscayne Park is a bird sanctuary; Miami Shores has become a hip place with restaurants and shops. Other parts of North miami are not as desirable. Close to the bay and east of 195 is where you want to be.

Miami Shores is a nice place, Biscayne Park is pretty good. Miami Shores has lots of parks and trees. it is a safe area nice homes. I went to school in the area I liked it a lot. As for North of Biscayne Blvd I would not move there. Unless you are talking about the area East of US One.

I spent my early teenage years bouncing back from The Shores and Biscayne Park so I got to fall in love with both areas. I'd say BP is a little quieter and definitely smaller, but Miami Shores is also a really nice place to be.

Default Thanks and more

Thank you very much for everybody for your very helpful comments. Do you think all the areas in Miami Shores are nice or some should be avoided?
I could not open the link sent by uggshelf, maybe is misspelled?

I have the same question, vgmau. The NW corner, or the Miami Shores Extension as it is sometimes called worries me because there are a couple of blocks where there are bars on the windows. Bars on windows are common in many parts of Miami (and make beautiful houses ugly, if you ask me).

But one important thing thing to keep in mind vgmau is to make sure when you see something listed as 'miami shores' that it is, and likewise with 'biscayne park' or 'coral gables'. People know that these areas are desirable and list the house as such to draw buyers in. The best thing to do is to get a map of the city or village online and use that as a reference to map the addresses of the places you're finding.

But like you I want to know which areas are better, and which leave a lot to be desired.

IMO, the closer that you get to Biscayne Bay the better. The streets E of Biscayne are cut off to through traffic making them very quiet and safe for children, joggers, bicycles, etc. Additionally the area around the churches and the golf course branching from Grand Concourse and Club Drive have some beautiful older homes, some of which are very spacious and on large lots. Also 96th St./Shoreland Blvd gets really nice E of 2nd Ave.
All in all, look for a home in the Shores that you find visually appealing and chances are that it will be in a pretty nice part of the Village.
*One caveat is that Barry is not in the best part of the Shores. It has potential, but for now its a bit rundown and seems less safe than the rest, (I could be wrong about the safe part though).
