Deerfield Beach, FL - An Awesome Place to Live

I relocated to Deerfield Beach, Fl about 8 years ago because of my job, and have been here ever since. When I am not at work, I enjoy water skiing and spending time on the beach. We have a lot of tourists who visit each year that like to do the same.

One of my favorite restaurants in Deerfield Beach that I visit often is Whales Rib Incorporated. They have the best seafood! You may have also seen this restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. My favorite dish they serve is the dolphin fish sandwich. Don't worry, it's not actual dolphin, it's actually mahi-mahi. Their menu offers seafood that is unique to other restaurants around. I like to shop by convenience, so I like the fact that we have 3 nice shopping centers not too far from each other. I would recommend the Cove Shopping Center. This shopping center has a nice selection of stores, and I always seem to find what I am looking for. A lot of our tourist each year likes to shop at them also.

At night in Deerfield Beach, I like to visit a fun bar with my friends called "Singers karaoke Klub". This place is awesome. We have a blast singing karaoke and the price of their drinks is not bad either.

Deerfield Beach, FL is an awesome place to live because of the beaches and wonderful summer actives. The only thing I don't really care for is when the hurricane season rolls around.
