Ready for Takeoff in Opa-locka

One of the perks of living in Opa-lacka was a really cool airshow put on by the local airport. It's since grown into an Air Expo with many fun activities for kids, including airplane rides. The city is in a great location and is close to Interstate 95. Public transportation is decent and there's a Tri-rail train station for commuters.

There are some beautifully designed homes in Opa-locka, as well as cheap apartments for those on a budget. Unfortunately, it's not among the safest areas and the crime rate is a concern for many people. Many families with children reside in the area but it's not family-oriented, and the schools are not the best.

You can find small local businesses and restaurants in Opa-locka, but will have to venture out for retail shopping and fine dining. There are adjacent towns that offer plenty of amenities, and some of the best nightlife can be found just 30 minutes away in Miami. Some of the best areas in Opa-locka are close to the neighboring towns of Golden Glades and Miami Lakes.
