Why CNN voted Weston as the 8th best place to live in 2016
Green Space: Weston residents enjoy the kind of open space you won’t find in many places in the country. About 25 miles to the east is the Atlantic Ocean and on its western flank is the Everglades, a resource that’s so iconic, there’s a likeness of it right on Weston’s town crest. Furhtermore, Weston is home to a dozen sports fields, nearly 50 miles of lined bike lanes, and the 100-acre Weston Regional Park.
Location: Located within easy commuting distance of Miami and Fort Lauderdale, this planned community also offers abundant employment options, at companies including Cleveland Clinic Florida and Ultimate Software.
Economic Opportunity: Weston is at the top of our list for economic opportunity, a category driven largely by purchasing power. That means residents have to sink less of their household income (the median is $99,690 a year) to buy a home than residents in most places around the country.
Family-friendly: All the public schools have earned an A average from Florida’s Department of Education. “Weston,” says Pam Fishman, a stay-at-home mom and New York City transplant, “offers a truly wonderful quality of life.”
