The Good, Bad and Ugly of Pembroke Pines
Are you thinking about moving to Pembroke Pines and want somebody to tell you what it's really like? In this episode of Hearty Homes, I'm going to give you the good, the bad, and the ugly of living in Pembroke Pines, Florida. We’ll look at everything from great schools to the weather so you can decide if living here is right for you.
The Pros Of Living In Pembroke Pines, Florida
The very first and most popular reason that people love living in Pembroke Pines is that we have a great school system. There are several schools to choose from, including preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school. We also have charter schools and private schools that are all top-rated.
Second, people love living here because of the weather. In Pembroke Pines, every day is a beach day. And third—in addition to the great weather—we’re surrounded by nature. We have all kinds of natural preserves as well as a great wildlife management system.
The Cons Of Living In Pembroke Pines, Florida
While these are some great pros to living here, I also want to let you know about the cons. If you're really serious about moving to Pembroke Pines, you need to know this stuff.
You might be surprised to know that Pembroke Pines has hurricanes during hurricane season, lasting from June 1 to November 30. I know it's kind of a long time, but if we prepare and get all our supplies together before the hurricane, we'll be alright. Just be sure that you have a family evacuation plan for when you need it. You also should make sure you have your paperwork in place so that you can get it when you need it.
If you can deal with hurricanes, then you probably won't mind the humidity. Pembroke Pines gets humid, with our humidity climbing to about 80%. The less humid month is March where it's about 60% and the most humid month is August, where it's about 80%. If you've seen my other videos, you know that I hate the humidity here.
Here's how I tried to get used to the humidity. First, I tried to grow gills—clearly, that didn't work. My next option is that anytime I need to go somewhere, I go out to my car, turn it on, and let the AC run for a little bit to make sure that I don't sweat from one destination to the other. I also bring a bottle of water with me because I get really thirsty. I also don’t go out between 12 pm and 3 pm or after it rains.
One last thing you should be prepared for is palmetto bugs. If you don't know what they are, Google it. There’s nothing we can do about it, folks. The best thing you can do is get pest control, and even then sometimes those little buggers still squeak through into the home.
