Hi everyone. First time posting here.

I will be moving to southern Florida from Los Angeles in June for med school in Davie. I am wondering whether I should live close to Miami or FTL. I would like to live in or close to the gayborhood since I never did and always wanted to. I am hearing that FTL is more for retired gay community and Miami is for the young. Since I am neither, I am not sure where I should be. Oh, and I definitely don't want to live right near Davie since I would like to be close to the beach. I enjoy the beach, exercise, going out to clubs and bar hopping on weekends. I also would like to drive as little as possible during the weekend.

I was just going to move to FTL (victoria park) but my friend told me that living in Miami is possibly since I will be traveling against traffic in the morning. However, I still think trying to get out of South Beach might be a ***** in the morning trying to get to 8am class in Davie.

Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions.

Bear in mind traffic in and out of Miami is always worse than what Mapquest says.

cuz FTL is not touristic. Miami Dade has the bay, a beautiful scenery/ skyline, internationally known clubs, art festivals, museums, an international airport, the biggest cruiseship port in the world, Lincoln Road, South Beach, a well known media portrayal (tv, movies, music), Sunny Isles, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Brickell, etc...
