    Hi Matt,

    Here are some nice places in random order:

    In Broward County- check out Davie, Pembroke Pines, Weston, Miramar, Sunrise ( I live in Sunrise), Plantation

    In Dade County- Miami Lakes, Miami Beach, Kendall, Biscayne Bay, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and northern Miami.

    Stay away from Hialeah...

    The crime rate is pretty high anyplace near Miami. The above mentioned places are/were nice neighborhoods when I lived down there some time ago. However, crimes does not discriminate down there. As a matter of fact, it seems to be even more non-discriminatory than most other areas of the country.

    although the crime rate here is high, i myself in the almost 23 years i have lived here, have never been a victim of crime. i currently live in coral gables, it is a city, not a neighborhood, within miami. downtown coral gables, has many restaurants, bookstores, cafes, parks, grocery stores, and a beautiful city hall. if you are looking to rent, the easiest way to find a place near downtown coral gables is by going in a car and going up and down the streets looking for "for rent" signs. many apartments here are not advertised online or in the newspaper (although some are in the newspaper, the better deals are not). buying in coral gables is very expensive, while renting is extremely reasonable. coral gables has it's own accredited police department, crime rates within coral gables are low, and fire station. you can check out more info about the city at www.citybeautiful.net
    also, i am pretty familiar with the area and can answer many questions you may have so feel free to ask away

    hi Pedineuronurse,

    Am coming for the Fall 2009 accelerated nursing and one of the most difficult things to do now have been to look for apartments!! I am in Boston so am not on the ground, may be that is why it is not so easy. Anyway, good to read from you here.
