I'm getting ready to move to Dade County, Florida for college.. I'm going to be attending Miami-Dade College and Miami International University for Fashion and Design.. Most of my time will be spent at MDC's Homestead campus, so I figured I would get an apartment there, as I've heard traffic between Miami and Homestead is horrible. I understand Homestead was one of the hardest hit areas during Hurricane Andrew, and that most of the town was devastated, and has since seen a bit of a population surge, but does anyone know anything about Homestead other than that? Is it a safe area? (Safe enough for me to get lost once in a while and not fear for my life) Any suggestions for where to find an apartment, if not in Homestead?
I googled for about an hour, but all I can find are message boards where people fight about local issues I know nothing about.. I'll be visiting a few times before actually moving, to finalize everything, but I would really like all the input I can get..
