There are many places in Broward County that don't look like they belong "in the general area" that they are in. What I want to do is this, and hopefully we can get some other to participate too: every, say, few days, take a picture of a random spot in Broward County, and we can try and guess where it is. Whoever wins gets to take the entire posters reputation! ...no, just kidding, but let's see how this takes off! I'll upload my first picture by the end of the day.

This is probably going to be such an easy guess for you guys, but here it is... And it probably doesn't qualify as an unusual place...sorry, i'm still new to Broward county, but I want to play!

I'm not going to answer the question because that would ruin the fun, but something we could possibly do...for each picture we post, we can indicate whether the picture is aimed at newbies, seasoned locals, or anywhere in between, if we get more than one picture(s) up at a time, we can assign a number.

Something like this

First one (difficult)-

Second one (easy)-

Surprisingly, no, quite a distance away from there actually. If someone doesn't get it on the third guess, I have another picture clue...

Trust me, I have some sneaky ones to come!

I am guessing that place is somewhere on Hollywood boardwalk.

I hope I don't get this wrong. My baby hates the carseat so I haven't ventured out much this year.

Those white gates look awfully familiar but then the road throws me off because it turns into what seems a dead end. I know I haven't gone down any of those roads in south of 595.

My initial guess was north of 595 and west of Hiatus in Plantation.

Good guess, but quite a distance from there too! I will give one clue- it's not an area you generally associate with people walking their horses around, as you see in the third picture (that was the hint to indicate it isn't just any random neighborhood with land).
