In the expansion westward of Fort Lauderdale, Broward County's western suburbs are seeing more visitors curiously touring around, and some even staying. Pembroke Pines is a suburb that has eager home buyers and visitors partaking in its sophisticated lifestyle and increasing top shopping and dining options.

The Shops at Pembroke Gardens opened in 2012 and it complements the city well. Located conveniently off I-75 with plenty of complimentary parking within easy walking distance of your favorite destination, this expansive shopping center lists familiar names in shopping and dining and is worth the drive.
You'll be amazed at such stores as the Z-Gallerie, with its classic and modern home furnishings and decor, or for the gourmet cook in the family, Sur La Table has opened this second location in South Florida with its high-end cookware and culinary accessories. The Shops at Pembroke Gardens has an eclectic list of clothing stores and boutiques with names such as Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, Hollister, Talbots, Jos. A. Bank and Old Navy. Take a break in your shopping day and stop at Barnes & Noble to relax with your favorite coffee from Starbucks and pick up the latest bestseller.
With the number of fine eateries here, it will certainly be a bit difficult to choose where to dine. Brimstone Woodfire Grill, Fuddruckers, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant, Sal’s Italian Ristorante, Jason's Deli and The Cheesecake Factory – you get the point. With such options, just one visit won't do.
Broward County's expansion from the beautiful beaches to its western limit at the Florida Everglades has broadened its appeal as a visitor destination or a permanent lifestyle option.
