Settled in the early 1900s, Davie’s reputation as being a “Western” town within the modern, urban South Florida Metro Area doesn’t disappoint. In fact, the town even features a Western themed district. In addition, many of Davie residents ride or even own their own horses.
However, don’t let Davie’s Old West vibe fool you -- Davie is the epicenter of higher learning in Broward County. The South Florida Educational Center, Florida Atlantic University and Nova Southeastern University make their homes in Davie. Davie is also a short commute to nearby Fort Lauderdale and offers quick access to all major roadways, Port Everglades and the Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport.
