Is it possible to live in Victoria Park without a car? How easy would it be to get to the Publix and to the beach?

ohhhhhh ehhhhh. That is a yes/no answer. can you do it? yes, but would you really want to do it? You have to remember its hades hot down here for much of the year and I should add that it is HUMID. You will get to your destination sweaty as all get out. If you are in victoria park you can walk east to victoria lane (I think thats the name of that road) and there is a bus right there. Will take you to the publix on Sunrise. As to walking to the beach, yeah in probably 45 minutes or so. Depending on where in victoria park you are. I would say ride a bike to the beach. Would be quicker, less sweat etc.

On the flip side of that they plan to build a street car system called the wave which will go through victoria park supposedly. That is if they confince the residence livign there to go for it. Read about that here Wave Streetcar - Project Details

I think building of that starts next year or 2012, I forget which.

i lived in victoria park without a car.. but i owned a motorscooter.. its a wise choice.. you can get an electric one if you wanted and mine got almost 80mpg down there.. considering the ground is so flat its relatively good around there.. and you can pick one up cheap ... also, no insurance is required on a motorbike less than 50cc, which your average motorscooter is 49.85cc or whatever.. all it costs after the bike is the $35/2yr registration and no special license

yeah, some sort of motorized transportation is key.. are you in florida now? the publix on sunrise and 15th is good.. if you're south of sunrise you can also go to the winndixie on about 7th street and federal.. there's also the winn dixie on federal across 20th street with a whole foods in the parking lot.. its a pretty good location really.. the gateway theater is great! with a scooter like transportation, or even a bike.. you can hit the strange little shops in the area as well..
