Lake Ridge

Fort Lauderdale, FL

As one of the best neighborhoods for 30-somethings in South Florida, Lake Ridge serves a special purpose for families and middle-aged couples that seek solitude in their communities. Amenities abound in the surrounding areas, but the interior area boasts a quiet life amidst rolling hills. Lake Ridge rests north of Sunrise Boulevard, only minutes away from the hubbub of the cityscape. This neighborhood combines the peace of isolation with the option of incorporation, encouraging residents to determine their scenery with their everyday mood. Ranked high on the school system scale, the Lake Ridge population consists of a diverse mix of families, and around 40 percent of those are raising school-aged children. This lower percentage of young people means personalized, customized education with more one-on-one time between students and teachers, leading to higher graduation and college-admission rates.

Restaurants

Brimming with a unique combination of cultural flavors and food concepts, Lake Ridge restaurant fare features original, locally owned establishments that entice residents to experience something new. Ideal for vegans and vegetarians, Sublime explores recipes made from 100 percent raw fruits and vegetables. Throw in some spices with vegan tofu, noodles and eggs, and you have an appetizing meal made from the freshest ingredients. Combining economic friendliness with a go-green attitude, this cafe employs skilled waiters and a knowledgeable owner to assist with the extensive menu. Situated in plain sight at the curve of Federal Highway, Red Cow cooks up new recipes with old Southern charm. Its delicious dishes have sophisticated flair, offering an upscale experience to those who still appreciate melt-in-your-mouth cornbread, sweet and smoky ribs and homemade macaroni and cheese. When you're in doubt, the well-informed wait-staff does not hesitate to suggest flavorful barbecue combinations you might enjoy. For those seeking a thriving nightlife, Laser Wolf on Progresso Drive offers craft beers from the best breweries in South Florida. Connoisseurs can sample each of the beers before making a selection, and the bartender has vast knowledge backing up brew-slinging expertise. As an added bonus, pups on leashes are welcome too.

History

Founded in the mid-1980s with a backdrop of forests in every direction, Lake Ridge has flourished into a thriving neighborhood of villas, golf courses, and nature’s native greens. The landscaped woods provide a haven for most locals, offering peace, quiet, and a sense of community, away from the hustle of the city. Avid art-lovers and creative minds can rediscover the beauty and brilliance of old-world artwork at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale. Its exhibits are ever-changing and flourishing with the works of local artists, as well as centuries-old masterpieces. Interactive customer service ensures you know everything about each installation, and photographers are always welcome. Preserved in generations-old artifacts, the Stranahan House features well-told stories and tours of the first South Floridian pioneers. There are old typewriters, plaques and entire rooms brimming with old-fashioned knickknacks. Plus, the home includes a clear view across the Las Olas waterfront.

Transportation

East Sunrise Boulevard and North Flagler Drive provide commuter routes to the surrounding cities, while a slew of scenic avenues take you through neighboring, close-knit communities. The Sunrise Bridge gives you safe passage from Lake Ridge to Fort Lauderdale Beach. Bicyclists enjoy the commute to work across North Federal Highway or take a leisurely ride around Holiday Park, accessible by G. Harold Martin Drive, Memorial Drive and Northeast 14th Avenue. Catering to celebrities, out-of-towners and locals alike, the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport offers flights worldwide. Security works efficiently to thin crowds, getting everyone through customs in a timely manner—despite this being the most popular airport in South Florida. Broward County Transit serves Lake Ridge with bus terminals sprinkled across the major highways and streets in the surrounding area. The most commonly used bus routes provide rides across East Sunrise Boulevard, Northeast 15th Avenue and North Andrews Avenue.

Cost

Costs of living in Lake Ridge range from the average to higher scale, allowing residents to choose an upscale, luxurious lifestyle or a moderate, comfortable one. Leasing houses and apartments span the gamut from affordable to expensive—all depending on the amenities you’re looking for. A one-bedroom apartment in a nicer building with many amenities can cost around $1192 a month for a one-bedroom place; however, residents rent one-bedroom apartments for as low as $720 a month. A one-day pass to ride the buses to and from the city costs $1.75 per person, and gas prices generally hover around 13 percent higher than the national average. Local pubs serve pints for $9.

Shopping

Brimming with major chain stores, Lake Ridge features the best in upscale luxury and convenience. However, the most notable shops and boutiques have been locally owned and operated for years, giving locals the comforts of small-town living within a larger city. Travel to the candy store To the Moon for handmade chocolates, hard candies, and taffies to satisfy your sweet tooth. Or, head into downtown Fort Lauderdale to explore the various art galleries and boutiques. Just east of the neighborhood off Sunrise Boulevard, the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale features anchor stores Neiman Marcus, Macy's, and Dillard's. Smaller shops include Lucky Brand, Nine West, BCBG, Ann Taylor, Chico's, and Pottery Barn. Grocery stores in the area include Publix and Bass Brothers Supermarket, as well as a few specialty grocers. The nearest farmer's market, Riverwalk Urban Market, is located in nearby Fort Lauderdale.

Parks

Lake Ridge plays host to acres of scenic, grassy countryside, introducing travelers and nature-loving hikers to the beauty of South Florida landscapes. Riverwalk Linear Park overlooks Las Olas—a crystalline lake with miles of open water, perfect for boating, fishing and swimming. Colee Hammock Park rivals other parks in acreage and scenic serenity, as the grassy knolls brim with massive trees, grown close together for ideal hanging of your favorite hammocks. You can relax while gazing up at the tree boughs, watching the breeze ruffle the leaves, or you can take a stroll around the footpaths that weave through the park. Popular in the 1970s, Holiday Park features an expanse of flat grass for sports and picnicking. Two play areas include swings, slides, and makeshift forts where big kids and toddlers can play together or separately. Play tennis at the recreation center on the property, watch the squirrels hunt for acorns or take a lesson in photography with classes from the local art scene.
