What are the 3 Top Places to Raise a Family in Miami

For those buyers who are looking to buy a house with the purpose of extending their families or raising their children, the main question is often: “What is Miami’s best neighborhood to raise a family?” Without a doubt factors such as safety, walkability, parks and good schools will come into play here. Although Miami has several excellent neighborhoods to raise a family, there are a few in particular that stand out in the crowd.

Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove is by far Miami’s most preferred neighborhood to raise children. The Grove is Miami’s safest neighborhood with 24/7 police control and a high walkability score. The tree filled, almost jungle-esk streets are safe for walking and traffic respects the playing children. The Grove offers quite the amount of child friendly parks, which is ideal for family outings. Coconut Grove also offers some of Miami Dade’s best private schools with desired options like Carrollton or Ransom.

Many Grovites indicate they love living in the neighborhood for its Bohemian chic feel and high-end lifestyle. The Grove is home to many wealthy families and many parents want to surround their children with that kind of atmosphere.

For parents its important to know that the Grove is ideally located with quick access to Coral Gables and Brickell and a 15 minute drive from the airport or the Beaches. In a recent poll among top agents the top 3 of Miami’s most desired residential markets was announced, which included Coconut Grove.

Being pre-dominantly a single-family home market, the Grove just introduced the first ultra-luxury condos that can host and entire family. Park Grove, for example, is a 5 star complex with 3 towers located in a 5,2 acre waterfront park that offers large unit ideal for families or buyers looking for a spacious condo.


Coral Gables

One of Miami’s most desired real estate markets and home to some of Miami’s best private schools, the Gables is very desired with young families. The Gables and the Grove are somewhat comparable. Coral Gables is very safe, the streets are walkable, there are many parks and Coral Gables is home to some of the best schools in Miami like Gulliver and St Philips. As many people work in the Gables or Brickell, living in Coral Gables is ideal for those who want to minimize travel time. Coral Gables offers a great amount of gated and very private communities. Many of these communities are located on waterfront lots and offer common amenities like tennis courts or children’s play grounds. The safety aspect of the gated communities make it very desired among families.

Coral Gables is pre-dominantly a single-family home market but recently there has been increased interest and supply of luxury townhomes and condos.
