Neighbors dont respect 1 rating By Anonymous ( Aug 28, 2019) Trash is always in front of my lawn. Neighbors playing music at all hours of the day. I dont onow why people confuse kendall west with the kendall by dadeland. Not the same thing. ...Read More Read Less
Kendall West Florida: Fun In THe Sun 4 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 26, 2018) I have lived and traveled to many places in the course of my lifetime. There have been places I have loved and others not so much. But one state and its cities that have always been on my list of the best is Florida. The sunshine state has provided me with a lot of good memories ...Read More and fun with family. In Florida I have been in several cities but one that stands out is Kendall West.
My Time in Kendall, west Florida can be defined as fun and relaxing. This city really has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment and fun. There are many destinations to visit like the Dadeland Mall and the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden. Kendall is very small and is in close proximity to many major attractions in other areas. Most are within 15 to 20 miles of the city. The Miami Zoo and the Jumping Jamboree for kids are a few of the things.
Just like the majority of the south the people here are about hospitality and are very friendly once a joined a party on the beach with strangers and we had much fun. Don’t get me started on the delicious food in the area. There is a broad mixture of different styles and flavors of food governing the area. Read Less
