I am planning on taking a job in Miramar, Florida, but I need to know the distance (hours and minutes) from each of these sorrounding suburbs. The comute time it will take me from Pembroke Pine to Miramar(Miami), from Plantation to Miramar, and Homestead to Miramar. I have always lived in the suburbs, and my maximum time of commute has been 1:15 minutes. I am moving from a Western state, although, Spanish is my first language I am fluent in English since I have always lived around English speaking individuals. But it's going to be a treat to be able to utilize both languages and that's the reason I am planning on accepting the position in Miramar. Could someone be kind enough to reply back to my inquiry.

Pembroke Pines --> Miramar : very close
Plantation --> Miramar: moderate distance
Homestead --> Miramar: too far

Miramar is a suburb too, either live there (stay west of Red Rd) or live in Pembroke Pines which is right next door. Both areas are fine. Pembroke Pines is not my favorite but is plenty clean and livable, and Miramar did a nice job around the new town center and is less congested than Pines. The crime rate also recently became lower than Pembroke Pines as well according to 2008 stats. Homestead is very far (almost an hour away) and I wouldn't live there for any reason. Plantation is mostly nice and has some pleasant "non cookie-cutter" neighborhoods but is about a 20 minute commute. I don't think that much nicer overall to justify another 20 minutes, although if there are personal reasons for living there, it's definitely a decent overall area. If anything, parts of Cooper City have a tree-lined look that's similar to Plantation (far far far better schools and safer too) and that's only about 10-15 minutes from most points of Miramar. Also, Weston might be a nice choice if you want to live in an upscale community that you can function bilingually. West Miramar is also dominated by Hispanics, but in my experience it's been a VERY assimilated crowd there that tends to almost always prefer English.

I agree with the previous poster just live in west Miramar. There are a ton of great housing choices and based on the market condition you will not have a problem finding somewhere nice at a great price. Miramar (west) is nice and language/culture will not be a concern. the problem with moving to Weston adn working in Miramar is that you will have at least a 15-20 minute commute going with bad traffic. Not worth IMO because Pines and Miramar have most of the restaurants and shopping - check out the website for Pembroke Gardens - great shopping/restaurants and bars and 5 minutes from Miramar. Enjoy! Had I been able to get a job in Miramar - I never would have left!
