Question Need Honest Input - Ft. Lauderdale Living

As I may have a tentative job offer in Ft. Lauderdale, I am investigating the lay-of-the-land in and around that area concerning future living accommodations. Specifically, the good, bad and other recommend living areas within a 30-45 minute commuting range that has a low (as possible) crime rate, good public schools, decent home prices (as possible), riding access for my son and other outdoor recreation attributes.

Any comments, recommendations and/or advice is welcomed at face value.

PM's are acceptable if preferred so as not to ruffle other ADV Rider FF feathers...

Thanks in advance-

UPDATE as of 7 Feb 12
Current listing of places to investigate are as follows.
Those with positive comments (+) are:
Weston (3+)
Stuart (2+)
Jupiter (1+)
Sunrise (1+)
Those with negative comments (-) are:
Plantation (1-)
Any area with a HOA the size of a bible (2-)

Next Question? 18 February 2012
If one was to decide on living any where South of Stuart/Jupiter and North of Ft. Lauderdale, how close would you limit your location (town name) near Ft. Lauderdale? An answer written such as, "I would live no closer to Ft. Lauderdale than X town because X has X problem" is preferred. I am just trying to gain your input in case the "Tentative Job Offer" is given as I was contacted and asked for additional information for the "Preferred Selectee" packet going to thier regional HQ's for final approval.
Thanks to all who reply!
