Being near North Miami, Golden Glades is a great location for those that are searching for a life of activity and also leisure. Being close to outdoor activities like kayaking in Oleta State Park or going to tan in Haulover Park or even going to admire the pieces of contemporary art in the Museum of Contemporary Art, but also close to Fort Lauderdale where you can have some fun at the Wharf or other bars and clubs that will allow you to have the time of your life.
Golden Glades is also a safe community that has little to no crime rates. With a population of about 33,000 people and a diverse group of ethnicities that live in harmony and acceptance of one another, Golden Glades is perfect for anyone that would want to live there.
However, Golden Glades is under the big cluster of highways. The major ones such as the Turnpike, 1-95, and the Palmetto Expressway are all located in Golden Glades and during rush hour traffic it is the most annoying traffic in the world. Bumper to bumper and all the cars are cutting each other off. How much more annoying can it get? With all the major highways under one big local intersection, during rush hour, Golden Glades is a nightmare worse than Miami Beach.
