WELCOME TO WESTON
One of the 10 Best Towns for Families
Recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, the peaceful city of Weston in South Florida makes it easy for residents to stay safe and healthy. The 14 parks and recreational facilities sprawling over 200 acres easily coax families out of their gated communities to swim, jog, and play with friends and neighbors.
A new and master-planned community, Weston, which was incorporated in 1996, is a suburb in northwest Broward County that’s reminiscent of Pleasantville. Composed entirely of gated communities, manmade lakes, and beautiful landscaping, this community is a multicultural and safe place to call home. In 2015, Family Circle named Weston one of the “10 Best Towns for Families.”
WHAT TO EXPECT
Gated communities and green living
In Weston, the grass is well-manicured, and every blade seems to be the exact same length. Even the trash cans, which are also green, carry the city seal. The neighborhood is a collection of gated communities, and neighbors tend to congregate in one of the 14 manicured parks. Errands are a cinch, because everything you need is close by. And reflecting the diverse population, Weston restaurants offer everything from American to French and Brazilian cuisine in casual to elegant settings.
Strong schools, outstanding public programs, and special events
Weston is a calm and quiet place to call home. It boasts a strong school system, and residents rave about the number of family-friendly activities organized by the city. Every season, Weston’s parks and recreation department publishes @Play, a complimentary guide listing all of the community center’s different programs and special events. And if the community’s orderliness makes anyone crave the wild, Sawgrass Recreational Park offers exciting and affordable airboat rides over the “River of Grass” that is the Everglades.
Revel in peaceful serenity
The nightlife scene in Weston is more likely to include a family picnic at Moonlight Movie in the Park, rather than a dance club. For those seeking trendy bars and late nights, a weekend in South Beach or Fort Lauderdale is better suited to meet your craving.
Private, lakefront communities with manicured landscapes
Weston homes are located within gorgeous, gated communities that have whimsical names like The Meadows, The Ridges, and The Islands. Thanks to superb landscaping, many homes overlook lakes or golf courses. From single-family home to giant estates, the real estate in Weston is storybook. Plus, Weston’s top-of-the-line infrastructure and public services give every resident access to highly rated schools and libraries.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH
The youthful mindset
Residents agree that the best thing about living in Weston is never having to leave. Everything you need is a bike or car ride away. Here, young minds stay engaged, professionals keep active, and retirees stay young.
