I drive from Palm Beach to Miami Lakes everyday. It is far, don't get me wrong, but I have been doing it for the last year and I can tell you that if you take the Turnpike for the most part the trip takes me about 60 minutes. Not too long if you have the radio going and need to unwind after a hard day at work. The Turnpike is not NEARLY as busy as I95 and in the year I have been driving there have been 3 accidents on the Turnpike that have screwed me up. On those days you just take a deep breath and keep on chugging. You could live in Dade County and deal with the higher crime rates, you could live in Broward County and live with the higher home prices, or you can travel an hour each way everyday in Palm Beach County. No matter how you look at it, you are screwed one way or the other. There are some safe areas in Dade County but then you have to deal with Traffic Hell and congestion that Dade County seems to major in. Compromise by going to Boca which is a nice area, somewhere with quick access to the Turnpike...it would shorten your commute a little. You will always have to drive where there is employment and in Florida jobs are tough to come by right now.....

To Miami LAKES is not even half bad. I would just take the turnpike to the Sawgrass Expressway, then I-75 to Miami Gardens Dr. Zero traffic on that route. That's why I say it depends on which part of Miami.

What about Tri-Rail? If the train runs through your area, it would save you gas and time.

A few things to consider:
-can you work from home remotely at all?
-is there a place you can crash there once or twice a week
-can you work flex hours like 4 10 hour days.
