Well, The Village location minutes away from Biscayne Bay make it very desirable. Space and lush landscaping add to the beauty of the area. Pinecrest was the home to The Parrot Jungle, where tropical species of plant and animal life were protected. This was South Florida’s earliest and iconic Tourist attraction. Although this tropical garden was a home to several parrot species and exotic trees, Hurricane Andrew destroyed a majority of the facility and the parrots became free. Many of these parrots still fly over The Village and can be seen around town, making it a kind of oasis away from the city. Pinecrest was elected by USA today as the “best city to live in”. With this rich history of natural life, and a mix of high performing schools, and abundance of natural parks, you can see why we were given this award.
Our vibrant community boasting a family-oriented lifestyle keeps on bringing in new relocators.
