Miramar stands as a jewel in Southeast Florida - the name itself means, "Look at the Sea" and it certainly does that. Some of the local activities are naturally associated with the water - fishing, parasailing, jet skiing and boating, and there is something for every age group. You'll be delighted with the many activities and events here. From the Miramar Cultural Center/Arts Park to the Miramar Regional Park, the city is replete with tennis courts, swimming pools, and facilities for all types of sports. Residents enjoy classes and programs that run the gamut from the arts and athletics to fitness and martial arts. There's always something to do and see.
The restaurants are in plenty and you can choose from a quick burger or a nice sit down meal in a pleasant, clean, and friendly atmosphere. You will be pleased with the selection and quality of eateries in and around town, both national chains and cozy mom-and-pop cafes.
The business and real estate climate are positive and upbeat, too. You see individual residences being upgraded; local businesses and large corporations have redeveloped properties in the city into beautiful new modern facilities. The city is proud of the redevelopment projects that have already been completed and the ones that are in the works for future successes. Two international airports are just a few minutes away by car or public transportation, and nearby Miami is the setting off point for countless cruises and sightseeing trips. There are so many entertainment opportunities within just a few minutes in any direction.
The schools of Miramar are part of the Broward County Public School system, which is the seventh largest school system in the United States. Miramar itself is served by over a dozen elementary schools and two high schools; all are places to get a good education in sunny South Florida. Parochial schools are also available.
There are several trade schools as well as colleges and universities within striking distance. There's no shortage of opportunities to learn and advance in this diverse growth oriented area. If you are interested in a stable and yet progressive place to live, Miramar is something to be carefully considered.
Work, play, and relax. And look at the sea!
