  • Great Cuban food

    Mambo Jambo is the place to go if you're craving Cuban food in Weston. The place is as authentic as you can get this side of 8th Street. The ceviche is fantastic, but make sure to share it with a few people as it is a huge portion. Paella is my favorite dish here, but there's a mixed grill of beef, chicken and pork which is excellent as well.

Most of the time you will see teenagers, young kids, seniors. But rarely you will find a single people over 20 years old living here. So, once in while those teenagers like to have fun. One of these nights, I was...

Weston Off The Beaten Path

  • MrAviator2u's Profile Photo

    by MrAviator2u Written Jan 26, 2005

    Weston is a young town compromising of about 65,000 people. It now includes all of Bonnaventure.

    Weston is an afluent community in Broward county about 10 miles west of downtown Ft. Lauderdale. You will see lots of BMW and Mercedes. But it is still down to earth.

    There are lots of children riding bicycles and people joggin in the streets. The population is higly educated so don't be afraid to ask for directions.

    Weston is not a grid street plan so make time to get lost.

Weston Favorites

  • YES!!! I love Coffee!

    Weston has a Starbucks coffee in almost every plaza. I just love to be able to stop over on Saturdays or Sundays in the morning with my newspaper, a cup of coffee... and just sit down there... Relaxing. Capuccino seems special when you drink like that. But on Sunday late afternoon when everybody is out in the plaza, walking with their kids, dogs,...

  • The best of two World - Golf Course and...

    Here we have beautiful sunsets, and we are literally surrounded by lakes, ducks and alligators. Weston is or used to be an extension of the Alligator Alley, which means that Weston used to be a swamp. Then the white man came, tried to take all the alligators away, so this way we could have beautiful houses. Biking before the sunset.
