One of the great reasons Coral Ridge is such a desirable neighborhood is its proximity to two major shopping centers, the Galleria Mall and Coral Ridge Shopping Center, acclaimed restaurants, excellent, A-rated public and private schools, and nearby houses of worship. It's conveniently located between Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach in beautiful South Florida.

Ron Laffey, a member of the Civic Association Board of Governors, describes the availability of shopping as "fantastic!" He talks the same way about the neighborhood itself, describing it as a cornucopia of residents who come from a variety of areas of the United States, as well as from South America and Europe.
"We have a combination of people who have come together as friendly neighbors," he advises. Another plus for living in Coral Ridge is its closeness to the beach. Just a 20 minute walk, and only five minutes by car.
Older “South Florida-style” homes, many of which have been updated with new kitchens, bathrooms, or additional rooms, are on a compatible basis with the new buildings that have risen here. Single family homes, townhouses, duplexes, and triplexes blend comfortably into the existing area. It's a community of low-rises with apartment units no higher than three-stories.
Younger people and families are finding their way to this neighborhood because of its location and proximity to an excellent grade school, Bayview Elementary, and the abundance of homes for sale or rent. Looking for more luxury living? Check out the Coral Ridge Country Club.
