    What do you like about Fort Lauderdale? Beach is pretty, very grid-like driving so it's easy to navigate.
    What do you dislike about Fort Lauderdale? Cost of living is astronomical, drivers are horrible, resturants are over-priced and the staff isn't worth what you pay, people are very unfriendly and unsociable.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
    How expensive is it? Depends on where you want to live. Anywhere in a somewhat safe neighborhood, expect to pay a premium.
    Is it safe? Most parts are not. Most neighboring cities are not. Keep a close eye on your purse/wallet, keep an eye on your car, don't trust anyone with any of your personal belongings unless you have known them for quite awhile. Lots of drugs and drug related crime. Lots of homeless people tapping on your window begging for a dollar while you're trying to get on the interstate.
    How is the weather? Florida weather. Love it or hate it.
    Additional thoughts? Expect the unexpected. Don't trust a soul. It's difficult to make friends here because everyone is out to make a quick buck at the expense of someone else. I've lived here for 4 years and don't know many people at all and trust fewer.
