"A useful road"

Eighty-eighth is near Dadeland Mall and The Falls. Following 88th East past the Palmetto expressway will take you to the Dadeland Mall. Following the road a little further will take you to US 1 (which offers a lot of entertainment). Following this road west, at 107th Ave one will find a large shopping center with a Macy's home, a McDonalds, Blockbuster, NY diner, Starbucks, Wolf Camera and a well stocked Publix. Living on this road is quite peaceful. The neighborhoods tend to be quiet and well insulated from the street noise. The Palmetto and the Florida Turnpike are within a few minutes in either direction. There are plenty of shopping plaza's with diners, steakhouses, sushi and book stores. Going west from 117th past the turnpike overpass one will find three shopping centers, 1 on the left 2 on the right. To the left you can find the Rock Fish cafe - an awesome, down home seafood shop. They get Conch daily from the Bahamas. The Chili's in the shopping center is clean, with friendly staff, and not always busy. There is also a Macaroni grill.
To the right you'll find a shopping center with Gatsbys (a local bar/grill/club), a movie theater, Nova South East university, Payless, Old Navy, an old diner (known for stealing credit and debit card numbers) and an On the Border ( which is quite nice, great staff, good food).
Going west further, at 137th ave you will find a Panera bread and another Starbucks. Further still and near the 150 mark you'll find a Steak and Shake and a Walmart on the right hand side. Opposite that there will be a highschool.
Cell phone reception is great on the full length of this road. Internet can be had at the Starbucks for a price and free at the Panera.
