      I have lived here since 1989. I watched the city grow into what it is today. The city has much to offer in regards to family friendliness. Coral Springs has one of the biggest soccer organizations for kids. Sports are everywhere from football to baseball to rugby. The schools are highly rated and all 4 of my kids went through the system with good grades. Religion is diverse. We have many different Christian institutions as well as Jewish temples and a mosque. As for nightlife and things to do .... you are limited here but the beach is a short 15-20 minute drive with traffic, the Panther stadium is 10 minutes away, Downtown Ft. Lauderdale is 30 minutes away so nothing is too far from you. Outdoors we have the Everglades in our backyard and those pesky Mosquitos aren't as bad as you'd think being so close. Also, do not listen to that raving lunatic Pellegrino's response to the city .... he wears a tinfoil hat apparently and might have something wrong upstairs in his brain housing group but most folks here are pretty sane and good people!

      I would not live here if they gave me a free house and paid the taxes and rent. DEAD PEOPLE (SHOOTING) DEAD FISH, and DEAD WATERFOWL. They use chemicals to kill weeds in the process kill the fish. It is a sick chemical laden city that I am moving from as the cancer rates are high. My last review was removed so this probably will be removed also. THE ONLY review was someone on vacation which tells you nothing of the unsafe chemicals in drinking water that cannot be filter out.

      The car insurance cost more then Miami due to all the accidents. Moved here and 5 days later get car totaled. They are worried about how everything looks so they overuse chemical for everything. All the wildlife is gone and there are dead floating fish in the water so it stinks.

      I visited Coral Springs, FL in early 2010 on vacation and absolutely loved it! Coral Springs, FL may not be the biggest city but it is filled with cultural and plenty of great restaurants and dining!

      I was fortunate to attend one of the many annual festivals in the city of Coral Springs called the "Out Town" festival! This was an outstanding small town event complete with a car show, beauty pageant and even carnival rides! In addition Coral Springs hosts an annual "Fiesta Coral Springs" which is a Spanish cultural festival and a wonderful parade around Christmas time!

      There are not many historical sites to visit in Coral Springs but there is some great shopping at the Coral Square which is a well design mall in the heart of Coral Springs. It's large in size and has plenty of selection and variety, in addition there are plenty of small novelty shops downtown and several strip malls! Dining is a pleasure in coral springs with a wide selection of restaurants from national chains down to some local favorites; I personally enjoyed "Mythos Greek Taverna" which I would easily recommend to anyone visiting Coral Springs!

      Coral Springs is a great place for families and singles alike to visit! There is plenty of nightlife, good shopping and excellent dining with some unique restaurants!
