Sunrise, FL

Located in Florida's heavily populated Broward County, the city is located only about 12 miles from Fort Lauderdale, giving residents of the community easy access to numerous major retailers. Sunrise is also easily accessible via the Fort Lauderdale International airport, one of the busiest in the United States. There are also several Amtrak stations in the area, servicing the local community, the majority working outside of Sunrise.

Established by Norman Johnson in 1961 as Sunrise Golf Village, the city soon changed its name to Sunrise, at the request of developers who desired to attract retirees to the sunny community. Starting in the 1960s and throughout the 1990s, Sunrise experienced substantial growth in population and size, an expansion that has helped attract substantial corporate development over the years.

In 2009, Sunrise was named by Business Week magazine as one of Florida's top three cities in which to raise a family. The magazine's rankings took into account multiple criteria, including crime rates, diversity, job opportunities, affordability, and the number of schools, museums and parks. Sunrise is home to two post offices as well as two public libraries.
