This is a really old bumped thread. I hope the OP did pick Cooper City though, I suggested it way back. I also changed my attitude towards the whole Habla espanol thing...

I live in Pines and it has some nice "behind the scenes" areas (meaning Taft between flamingo to Johnson). The neighborhoods are older but generally maintained and Taft, Johnson, Sheridan afford you to travel in parallel to Pines with very little traffic. I don't find as much hablo here as in Doral, Miami Lakes or even Miramar. I don't have kids so I cannot speak to the schools. There is plenty of shopping. Not a terrible area

"The Pines" is a very good place to live overall. It is, though, rather huge for a suburb, and it can get quite congested because of the Pembroke Lakes Mall and all the other retail along Pines Boulevard. It's also relatively removed from the coastal areas. Still, very good schools.

You can also check Miramar, I live near I-75 and are selling my place due to job relocation. If interested let me know or go to: //www.city-data.com/forum/class...r-fl-sale.html
Miramar is growing and it just a short drive away from Pembroke Pines, there are 5 schools in a 2mi area from my place, 2 of them are brand new.

This is a really old thread, but Miramar is also a good place to check out for the OP. Very nice, incredibly diverse place, but safe neighborhoods and good schools.

Although, regarding Miramar, I'd suggest looking for housing WEST of Hiatus Road. That's where the newer neighborhoods are. Although I find the houses in eastern Miramar more charming, the homes aren't generally as well-maintained as those in the western areas. One of my brothers lives in western Miramar, in the Silver Lakes development. It is a beautiful area, though I wouldn't wanna live there. Too far out west for my taste.

Not to mention that crime east of Hiatus will increase the more you go east- stay in the Pines area if you can afford it- preferably west of i-75

Pembroke Pines west of University is considered very desirable by local buyers, and Realtors are happy to accomodate them.

There are lots of bargains to be found in every price range.
