I am moving to Miramar next month, b/c of work, with my wife and 3yr old and will be living off of red road near 26th street. I don't know anything about the area. Is this a good/bad/safe area? Is there much to do in terms of parks, restaurants, shopping? How are schools? Any info would be appreciated.

The schools are terrible and borderline dangerous. Miramar high school is pretty much awful.

Save for private school and sign up for charter schools as soon as you get here.

Shopping and eating out will not be a problem. It is a crowded suburban "hood"

I would completely disagree with that post, as that neighborhood should be zoned for Everglades High, which isn't the top school but is much better ranked than Miramar High, and high schools are irrelevant for a three year old anyway. The elementary schools should be decent. Also, that area is actually a little short on restaurants, as nothing really existed there until 2007-2008 (there are STILL cow fields in that area), but it is close to shopping in Pembroke Pines and Miami Lakes, and Aventura is about 20-25 minutes away for more extensive shopping. They just built a new shopping center with a Kohl's and a few other stores across the street. The area is fine.

From what I understand about Miramar is that it's on the Broward/Miami-Dade line so depending on what side of the street you live on, you could have a 305 or 954 area code and technically live in Miami Gardens.

red rd and 26 would be Aventine apartments..unless you are living in the new stuff right across from the town center. Town center has a good Italian rest. called "la familgia" that is the same owner as Antonio's pizzera in east miramar. There are some good restaurants right off the pkwy between Red rd and Flamingo and even more west of Flamingo. There are also some good restaurants right off Pembroke and Red road...a very good Argentinian restaurant that has won many awards "che pible" I think is the name. They are building a HUGE new Boekampers sports bar/grill right next to the Home Depot off Dykes and the parkway.

This thread is silly. Red Rd. is West Miramar and west of the FL Turnpike. Nice area! But very suburban. The 'night life' is closer to the beach (like Aventura).

What side of Miramar are you moving into the west side by 75 or the east side by University Drive? The east side is older and unfortunately has gone down in value and even safety. The west side has the newer homes and is more upscale too. I wouldn't worry about the schools but will definitely plan for private

If you are moving to Miramar, private schools are the only option. You need to move more north up 75 into Pembroke Pines or Weston (5 minutes up the highway). The charter schools in Miramar are just as bad, if not worst than the terrible public schools. As another poster said, Miramar is basically a suburban hood.
