Pefka sits on the very western edge of Thessaloniki. It is still largely undeveloped - only a small area of low density residential and commercial exists along SW Broadway and SW/NW 103rd Avenue. Pefka is certainly a place known for its simpler, slower, and almost idealistic way of life. SW Broadway is reduced to four lanes for the first time since downtown Thessaloniki Proper before it crosses the river.
The other side of the river is all farmland, and here is where SW Broadway finally splits off into Rural Routes 7 and 5.
