    Overall Experience at Davie: This part of Davie has so much potential to become a great environment for families.

    Overall Experience at Davie: I would definitely choose to live here again. The neighborhood is quiet with friendly neighbors. Right around the corner is a shopping plaza and just five miles away is a few colleges and much more to do. I think for the area, this area is very nice compared to surrounding neighborhoods and I definitely feel the safest here.

    Overall Experience at Davie: I grew up and continue to live in a small city in South Florida. It has always been a place that many consider luxurious in its physical appearance and residents. It's a quiet city where people take the opportunity to raise a family because of its charm and relative safety. My family was no exception. The thing is that this ideal town is somewhat too sheltered and purposefully cut off from locations or activities that might bring in the "wrong kind of crows". I understand why they do this as the goal of the city is for young families and for retired individuals. However, for people like myself who are in an age where the beautiful parks that dot the city are not enough to capture our interest or attention for long. There are many restaurants and parks, but everything else of interest, such as malls, bowling alleys, and movie theaters, are not located inside the city. Other than that and its extreme tranquilness, my city is great and when I am older I would return to live here in order to raise a family.

    Overall Experience at Davie: My review of this neighborhood is its great for older families. Families in which grandchildren come and visit but not to live. My neighborhood and the area are welcoming but not welcoming. Meaning, they are rude with how they speak to tenets.
