Pembroke Pines, FL City Review

I spent the better part of the 90's living in a gated townhouse community in Pembroke Pines. Located about 10 miles west of Hollywood and not too far from the beach, overall I found Pembroke Pines to be a good place to live. I enjoyed all the amenities of a middle class suburb and endured the problems that come with such a community.

Whether it was shopping at the Pembroke Lakes Mall, dinner at a nice Jewish Deli or a night at the movies, you could find it in Pembroke Pines. There was a big park and several public golf courses I used to frequent.

With the good came the bad. There was a growing crime rate and traffic was becoming more and more unbearable. The city had more than doubled in size in the 8 years I had been there and I had had enough of the hustle bustle lifestyle. One day I decided to sell my house in Pembroke Pines and move. Today I'm very happy living on 3 acres of wooded land in the country, far from city life.
