A family-oriented, master-planned community with manicured community entrances and landscaping, the community offers a wide range of housing styles and price ranges to meet the diverse needs of South Florida residents and visitors including timeshares, apartments, townhouses, single story homes, and multi-million dollar mansions. The distinction of having the lowest crime rate in Broward County, excellent schools, and expansive recreational parks has resulted in Weston being named by CNN and Money Magazine as one of the best places to retire.
