Located about 5 miles south of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the town of Davie is just minutes from an exciting urban center and the balmy Atlantic Coast. Despite these attractions and a rather large population of about 92,000 residents Davie has been able to maintain a somewhat rural and uncluttered atmosphere. Now one of the more popular areas in Ft Lauderdale, the town is attracting many newcomers who seek a home for rent.
In addition to its distinctive tranquility, the town has become known for its western theme district and large educational complexes that forms a cornerstone of the student lifestyle in southern Florida. Higher education opportunities in Davie alone extend to seven colleges, universities and technical schools, including the University of Florida, Broward College and Nova Southeastern University. Rentals in Davie, Florida, are suitable for these college-age students, families and young professionals. A diverse offering of recreation and culture make the town a pleasant home for people of all ages.
Homes for rent in Davie place residents in a east-coast town with the reputation of having a "western" feel. Though the herds of cattle that once grazed in the area are gone, many Davie residents still own horses, and the municipality has attempted to maintain its pioneer identity. Those with nearby rentals can catch a glimpse of the town's history at the Viele House, the oldest residential structure remaining in Davie, which was built in 1912 and survived several hurricanes and floods.
Those new to the area can find a home for rent near many of Davie's open green spaces, parks, and more than 165 miles of biking, jogging or walking and horseback riding trails. While these distinctions have helped put the town on the map, those with Davie rentals might be more inclined to enjoy the beautiful Flamingo Gardens, the Young at Art Museum, the Bergeron Rodeo Ground or the Miami Dolphins Training Facility.
