I will be relocating to South Florida soon to start a new position. We currently live in Savannah, Georgia and are looking for nice neighborhoods in our price range in vicinity of Sunrise. I don't know much about the area, but have been told so far to look in Davie, Pembroke Pines, Weston, Cooper City, Parkland and Coral Springs. My income is @ 100K so I want to make sure I can afford a nice 4BR and keep my kids in a safe school district. I have a soon to be 5th grader and 9th grader. Thanks for any and all feedback!

If you are working in Sunrise area, I would suggest looking in Davie or Plantation. However if you are working all the way west in sunrise, you can also consider Weston or western parts of Coral Springs. Welcome to Sunny Paradise

We also relocated from the Savannah area! We miss it! We rented for a year in Weston and now are looking to purchase a home. Weston is a very nice area, safe, and great schools. The whole town looks like a resort. Very well taken care of. There are not very many "chain" store here so you have to go south to Pembroke Pines for shopping or North to Sunrise area. Homes are a little more as well as taxes in Weston. Pembroke Pines has good schools as well, you get a litte more for your money home wise and the taxes are less. There are also all the major shopping stores and malls, etc...

The cities you mentioned are all good areas. I would rule out Plantation since the schools are not the best. Cooper City, Pembroke Pines, Weston, Davie, Coral Springs, and Parkland seem to have the best schools according to most on here. Sunrise is a short commute from all of those suburbs. You'll have a pretty easy commute each day which is a luxury.
