      The Beauty of Miramar, Florida is its Location
      Growing up near Miramar I have watched this city grow from a small residential city with few businesses to a large area that is filled with homes, apartments, shops and parks. Although back in the 60's and 70's this area was mostly known for it's larger homes and yards tucked within beautiful old trees, today with the sudden growth spurt of Miramar in the past several years, it extends much farther west, with its city limits ending near the Everglades.
