Welcome to The Corals (Coral Heights and Coral Woods)
Access to the beach, various downtowns and cultural hotspots aplenty, all with a cozy neighborhood vibe.
Ah, The Corals. In assessing where to live in Broward County and, specifically, east of I-95 you’ll see a handful of neighborhood options with Coral in their name. Among them, Coral Heights and Coral Woods are historically stellar options, with single-family homes aplenty spanning the brand new to tastefully restored spectrum.
Both neighborhoods are part of Oakland Park. Coral Heights is geographically situated south of Floranada Road down to Northeast 38th Street, with Northeast 12th Terrace and Northeast 20th Avenue generally serving as the east-west borders. Coral Woods is a smaller neighborhood bordered by Northeast 38th Street to the north down to Oakland Park Boulevard south, with Northeast 18th Avenue and Northeast 20th Avenue as its east-west boundaries. Between them both, are approximately 350 total residences that may just be primed for you and yours.
What to Love
Between Coral Heights and Coral Woods, there are approximately 1,000 residents. If a tranquil oasis in the heart of it all is what you seek, the options abound. Beyond a couple of quaint lakes in the Coral Heights neighborhood, the landscape here is dotted with mature palms and generally yards with stately hedges. Beyond the neighborhoods’ confines, Jaco Pastorius Park is within five minutes. On the average day, it has a walking/sidewalk track for locals to enjoy as well as an interactive water feature at its entrance that’s a hit with the kids. The park also regularly hosts community events like an annual Latin Fest and Oktoberfest.
Along Oakland Park’s main drag – the north-to-south Northeast 12th Avenue – is a host of popular restaurants and breweries. Among them are Funky Buddha, Black Flamingo and, across Dixie Highway, Prison Pals. You can also enjoy boutique shopping at The Wander Shop and, for guys, snag a haircut at the Dick’s Service Station classic barber shop.
Dining, Entertainment, Shopping
From these two Corals neighborhoods, many grocery, dining and shopping selections are within minutes.
On Dixie Highway between Commercial Boulevard south to Northeast 38th Street, Tortilleria Mexicana is a regional favorite for no-frills tacos and authentic Mexican fare. Tequila Sunrise Mexican Grill and La Empanada Loca along this stretch serve up equally as tantalizing Latin cuisine.
For coffee, Cyth & Co. coffee shop in the heart of Oakland Park has a menu chock-full of gluten-free and vegan options. It’s a specialty coffee haven, too, with diverse-flavored lattes often topped with the coolest of latte art. Beans-N-Dough Cookie Company is another stellar coffee option.
