Living in Weston Florida What I LOVE and what I HATE

Weston, Florida is a wonderful place to live! There are lots to do, and so much more. But no place is perfect so here’s what I love and what I’m not so crazy about.

So I love the fact that so many people are interested in moving to my little piece of paradise in the suburbs

Well, today I’m gonna talk about five reasons I love living here… and five things I’m not so excited about.

RELOCATION GUIDE https://www.estatereal.net/relocationguide

Let’s start with the bad ones first.

Number One

Not enough adult entertainment around, meaning bars, nightclubs places to gather with your friends and have a drink and dance maybe 🙂 but of course, we have fort Lauderdale, sawgrass… it is just a bit of a drive, but it comes to have fun who cares.

Number Two

The heat. There’s no way to avoid this issue. June, July, and August are insanely hot, it’s just how it is. Luckily there’s this beautiful invention called air conditioning! So everyone spends the time in their air-conditioned house, they get in their air-conditioned car, they go to their air-conditioned office, and the minute they get home from work they need to go to the pool or the beach. So if it’s only for three months of the year and it’s ok no biggy.

Number Three

It is very humid. even tough Weston its a bit better when we talk about humidity; yes it is a pin in the kneck, not only during summer but pretty much all the time we all go outside looking like a million bucks and out of the certain the hair goes PU! and there you go you may look pretty much like Tina Turner, but again… we are very familiar with the terms ponytails, buns and many other hairstyles that help with the problem.

Number Four

The Mosquitos and the little friendly creatures that the everglades bring, sometimes they welcome themselves to visit but we are in tropical weather and of course, we get some pretty scary-looking bugs here. They’re not fun. but when you live in Weston the city has a top-notch way of being in the top of this issue.

I have the mosquito control prevention webpage down below for more information, schedule times for spray areas and so forth.

https://www.broward.org/Mosquito/Pages/LarvicidingSchedule.aspx

if you are very particular about not having any of this little things around there is always the option to have a pest control service and we have somebody come once every three months, spray the outside of the house, and that does the trick if you want to go the extra mile.

Number Five

The need for flood insurance. We live in a hurricane-prone area. Not a lot, it’s not like living in New Orleans or the Gulf Coast of Florida, … we do get some hurricanes. We’ve only had a couple in the last 20 years but when they come you know you are protected… So anybody who lives close to a body of water may need to have additional flood insurance on their home. If you’re going to be moving to Weston and you’re buying a house or you’re even renting a house, I’m gonna link this down below.

You put in the street address of the house that you are considering and it will tell you which flood zone it is in

https://msc.fema.gov/portal/search#searchresultsanchor

Just something to keep in mind if you’re gonna be buying a house and it’s in a flood zone. That’s going to be added on to the cost of your monthly mortgage payments so you kind of has to adjust your budget accordingly.

So now let’s move on to the five things that I love about living in Weston

Number One

Has to be the landscape. I love walking even driving around Weston. The landscape and architecture of the city it is to die for, the city has a lot of charm, I love to walk around in the morning and find so many people exercising enjoying the amazing blue skies and the views of this well-put town … it’s gorgeous.

Number Two

Weston is a very family-oriented town, THE SCHOOLS, the kids running around, riding a bike, playing outside like my good old days, Weston has been awarded as one of the safeties cities in Florida, the city has a lot to offer, parks, recreation, outdoor activities you name it.

There are festivals all the time, … it’s just a really cool place to go and hang out whether you’re just coming down for dinner or spending the day on Saturday or Sunday having bbq at the park.

Number Three

The Location! The beach is less 40 minutes away from here, we have the best of both worlds, the beach if you like or the suburbs the parks nature the everglades. I love the beach. It’s really easy to just say, “Hey let’s go to the beach for the day,” hit the road, go over to Las Olas, spend

the day either soaking up the sun, playing volleyball, leave everything on the sand, and hit one of the restaurants to go get some lunch or go in all the little tourist shops.

Number Four

Multicultural gastronomy that we have around here we have amazing Peruvian food, sushi, Italian, American l!!! So we’ve got a million restaurants around that have killer food to try something different every single time.

Number Five

The TRAFFIC it is so much different than what we have around, Miami, Fort Lauderdale.. it is impossible to move around in a reasonable amount of time… if you need to go to Miami in rush time it can take you up to 2 hours easily.
