Moving to south florida. Help me pick an area!

We are considering a move somewhere between Delray and Fort Lauderdale and are looking for opinions on different areas. I'd like to be as close to a beach as possible and also would like to be within 30 minutes of a Whole Foods or comparable grocery store as we have some dietary restrictions in the family.

I would love to be in a walkable area, but recognize that is not always easy when safety is a concern. My husband travels quite a bit so being in a safe area is very important. Our rental budget is up to $1500 per month for 3 bedrooms. Would love to have a community pool if not close to the beach. I have a 3 year old so an area with a lot of activities for her would be desirable. Any suggestions for areas that sound like a good fit for us?

Congrats Vivien!

But relocation threads are against the TA rules.

I can suggest if you need to be near a Whole Foods that you go to their store locator on their website and mark down the nearest locations on a map. Then start looking. I also suggest that you go down and live in your chosen area before your final move for a min of a week, but a month per location is better to truly understand where is best for you. And rent when you get there before buying in case you need to 'tweek' your chosen area.

Nothing wrong with asking where to go, what to do, where to eat etc. You know, things that visitors want to do too.

And if sometimes the odd mention of where to buy furniture and who is a good realtor gets mentionned................................ ;-)
