    Crime & Safety at Davie: In my time of being in this area I haven't had any problems with crimes or vandalism. The police are very common driving down the streets, even though it may seem like they are not needed. It is better that they are still there and not needed, than needed and not there.

    Overall Experience at Davie: The area I live in is very friendly and peaceful. When I first moved in I felt lonely due to the fact of not knowing anyone in the area, as is common for most individuals who change residencies. Despite that, he neighbors and others around made feel at home and welcomed me with open arms. That feeling of loneliness quickly vanished as I became good friends with those around me. Not only do we get along with each other but also find several activities to do together.

    Crime & Safety at Davie: There's little crime in the area that I know of. The police are very present and mostly get people in trouble for speeding, as there aren't a lot of more intense crimes going on. It's not to the point of a small town where you feel comfortable leaving your door unlocked or walking alone at night, but it is still very safe when you take proper precautions.

    Overall Experience at Davie: There are a lot of good schools around, and it's a safe area. It has a suburbian atmosphere but with a short drive you can go to the more city-like areas like downtown Fort Lauderdale and Miami which have a lot of nightlife activities and concerts and art events. The beach is also a very short drive away. It is a good area to live in, but I've lived here all my life so I'd like to leave to see more of the world. If you've lived in other places already and weren't satisfied, I'd try your luck here.
