Welcome to South Florida
Where residents discover sandy white Beaches and more...
When most people think of South Florida, they think of Miami or the Florida Keys. Both are impressive sights to see, but there is much more to South Florida than that. Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale are two other areas that offer amazing luxuries in a more relaxed atmosphere.
South Florida’s biggest appeal comes from its iconic beaches, pristine waters, and the opportunity to embrace outstanding outdoor living. Therefore, much of the architecture has a beach vibe, with Mediterranean-style luxury homes and palm trees scattered all around.

In South Florida, residents enjoy doing what they love every day of the year. There's never a shortage of things to do, whether you're relaxing at home, exploring the area, or relaxing on the beach. Sunny weather and mild temperatures throughout the year ensure that residents can be active from daylight to dark. Living near a city, of which there are several, will also enable you to enjoy unforgettable entertainment and cuisine. It simply depends on what part of South Florida you choose to call home. You may choose to live in a suburb of metropolitan cities like Miami or Orlando or hang your hat somewhere in between. There are places with small town friendliness and big city excitement, such as the illustrious Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale areas.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
When in South Florida, shopping and entertainment are top priorities for most residents. Luckily, there's no shortage of either, depending on the type of pleasures you're seeking. You could start off with a day of shopping at the Town Center at Boca Raton. It's an upscale shopping mall that is home to stores such as Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Louis Vuitton. It also ranks as the third-largest shopping mall in South Florida. If you want to experience the biggest mall in Florida, you can visit the Aventura Mall. It is home to over 300 stores, including 50 eateries and restaurants for you to choose from while you're there.
At the end of a long day of shopping or living it up on the beach, there's an ample selection of restaurants for you to enjoy. If you're in the mood for Italian cuisine, one very popular place to visit is the Casa D'Angelo Ristorante. If you're in the mood for something a little more casual, but still able to delight your taste buds, the Taverna Opa may be top of the list. Not only does it promise to satisfy your cravings, but those who dine in can enjoy live music and happy hours.
Things to Do
Around every corner, there's never a shortage of fun waiting to be had in South Florida. For instance, if you love history, visit The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum.
