What part of Pembroke Pines, east or west? Single family house, townhouse?
I lived in Cooper City, next city over until this past January.

Yay.

I lived in central Pembroke Pines a few years ago (near the mall)

I never had any issues...if I made enough money to live comfortably in South Florida, I'd move back in a heartbeat.

Yay.

Pines Blvd is like a Kendall Drive "North," though. Lots of traffic. I prefer living in Cooper City, myself. I heard good things about the charter schools there, but the wait list is long, however you score a better chance being a Pembroke Pines resident. Lots of great shops and Pembroke Lakes Mall (Dillards/JCPenney/Macys/Sears). Everything you could need is within the city. Hospital, parks, housing from less expensive $200-$300 K to about a million dollars. (which doesn't by much in South Florida standards)

I live in pembroke pines East, East of University. I do not like the schools or the atmosphere here. I live in the area where there is no HOA and there are nice sized lots. Everyone is fixing up their homes but there is no sense of community. There are 4 SAHM's on my block and none of us get together, only 2 of us speak English at my mommy and me class ALL the moms and kids speak Spanish so I do not get to talk much. The older kids do not come out often but when the do they are hanging out at the local beer and cigarette store. I NEVER see parents out with these kids. We do have some really great neighbors that are very friendly but I am just talking about the general feel. There is a gated HOA community here called Walnut creek which has sidewalks but it is more $$. The elementary school is Boulevard heights and on greatschools.com it got a low rating.

My mom lives in central Pines and I would move there in a heartbeat if I had 450+ to do it. There are town homes that I am sure are less. The area is really pretty lakes everywhere and the mall is close. I always see kids out riding bikes on sidewalks and their parents near by-at least in my moms neighborhood. The elementary school Pembroke Lakes Elementary is rated a 10! I went there but that was a LONG time ago. There are homes there with no HOA and also nice sized lots.

West Pembroke lakes, I dont have a lot of experience with. It is very crowded there and there are all HOA communities with small lots.

There is SO much to do here. You can go to a different park, place every day. Hollywood beach is close so that is nice. There are arts and theater only a small drive away, Miami and Ft Lauderdale are close so you could do anything you would want to do within a not too far drive.

I have decided to move out of the area after living here my whole life. I cant afford central pines and I do not want to raise my son here in East pines.

I have lived in PP for 20 years, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

All in all it is a good place to live, I just dont like my neighborhood

belladee,

thanks for the info--are there many condos in Pembroke or just houses? Is this mostly for families or single people live there too?

Ehh..

People are fine otherwise.
Schools are crappy east, better west.
High crime? How rediculous. There is certainly crime but its comparable with any other American suburb, just look on City Data, its lower then average.
Kind of crowded and ugly though, try Cooper City

I agree with Joseph. You may wish to check out Cooper City, as well. Don't let other posters scare you regarding Spanish residents.
