    The eastern boundary of Miramar starts at SR 441 and heads west towards I75 just ends at SR27 before the Everglades. There are 5 lakes enclosed by residential neighborhoods. This is a picture facing the ocean Can you tell me where in Miramar this picture was taken because I lived in Miramar and this is not a picture of Miramar. Nice picture though.

    Not sure which Miramar is pictured, but it’s not the one in Florida.

  3. Delfina Aleman

    Agree with the others posts, this is not south Florida Miramar. The houses aren’t built or look like those and Miramar in south Florida is not ocean front.
