Pembroke Pines is a city of around 160,000 people just north of Miami. Set apart from the city itself, the town has a laid-back, welcoming character of its own that visitors will love. Stretching east to west between the Everglades and Hollywood Beach, Pembroke Pines has expanded rapidly in the past 20 years, prospering as an upmarket neighborhood with excellent links to downtown museums, theaters and restaurants, as well as excellent access to the popular beaches of Southern Florida.Rentals for an unforgettable stay

Alternatively, choose somewhere in busier shopping areas like Pembroke Gardens or the city center, where getting to know the locals couldn't be easier at restaurants and lively sports bars. With vacation rentals for groups of friends, families and couples alike, it's a superb base for sampling South Florida's unique charms.

The area and getting around
Pembroke Pines may sound like a remote forest, but it's actually one of Miami's northern suburbs, and is just 24 miles away from the center of town. Dip into the upscale continental cuisine of the Miami Design District, devour Latin American seafood delicacies like ceviche in Coconut Grove, or munch on delicious Cuban sandwiches in Little Havana. The manatees and turtles at Seaquarium or the gorgeous gardens at Vizcaya are less than 45 minutes away as well. And that's not all. Fort Lauderdale's casinos and beach are 10 miles away, while the Everglades stretch off to the west. All-in-all, it's perfectly placed to get to know the region.Buzzing restaurants and shopping hubs
You don't even need to venture into Miami to enjoy Pembroke Pines. There's plenty on offer in the town itself. For instance, the downtown area around C.B. Smith Park and Pembroke Lakes Mall features water parks, green space, boutiques and dining spots, all within walking distance. Miramar is a cultural center, hosting outdoor and indoor performances and cookery events all year round, while Pembroke Gardens in the western part of the city has become a nightlife and shopping destination, blending chilled out cocktail bars, surf and turf grills, and open air malls designed with the climate in mind. Further west, Pembroke Shores is built around a series of lakes, and properties tend to combine convenient locations with waterfront views. It's an excellent spot for vacation rentals and has attractions of its own, like the YMCA Family Center water park.
Travelers and activities
