The Broward County city is among the principal cities of the Miami metropolitan area, lying approximately 20 miles north of Fort Lauderdale and 10 miles southwest of Boca Raton.

We're talking about several dining establishments that promise to satisfy any taste and appetite!

The Walk is also ground zero for groundbreaking entertainment.
On any given night, visitors can enjoy the live sounds of some of the best local acts in the music industry.
Rarely targeted by (un-knowing) tourists, rowdy streets and throngs of crowds aren't usual occurrences in Coral Springs-- and the locals wouldn't have it any other way!
In fact, you can almost go far as saying that Coral Springs is one of the few places in the Miami metropolitan area where you can take a peaceful walk and catch the warm sun rays undisturbed, and that's saying a lot in a top destination like Florida!
Here, the outdoors are a sanctuary of serenity.
Going around Coral Springs, you'll notice a lot of parks and pocket green spaces, native plants, flowers blooming, and spots you can visit for a quick escape from the city noise.
You can also go deep into the Everglades and access the grassy swamps that surround it.
It's the ideal destination for those who want to get close to the state's most iconic habitats, and there's an uninterrupted view of everything thanks to the flat terrain!
But if you're not up for an adventure, you can just walk a few steps to your chosen park, sit on one of the benches, and relax.
The good news is that they're all a few meters from one another, so you won't even break a sweat!
No doubt, Coral Springs is one of the best places to recharge, unwind, and take a breather!
Essentially a smaller version of Fort Lauderdale's hustle and bustle, Coral Spring's city center is easily walkable and a perfect fit for folks who want to get rid of their cars while doing errands or enjoying the peaceful view.
Sample Road is the city's main thoroughfare, running west to east through the neighborhood.
The road has several bus stops for Broward County Transit's 34 bus routes, one of Fort Lauderdale's public transportation options, offering service to the Pompano Beach community.
This amenity makes it easier to cross cities and explore, especially for first-time visitors raring to see more of Florida.
There's also low traffic in the area, so if you're the type to bring a car with you elsewhere, you won't have too much of a stressful drive.
But if you want to experience the realness of Coral Springs, ditch the car and lace up your walking shoes-- the views are AMAZING.

The large water park features everything from slides to waterfalls to sprinklers to a lazy river that takes 10 minutes to wind along.
Just remember to slather on the sun cream before jumping in.
Another of Coral Springs' recreational spots is Betti Stradling Park, which offers 21 acres of lush greens, a skate park, athletic fields, a beach volleyball court, a basketball court, and exercise stations.
