What’s it like to live in Miami?
Miami’s standing as a dynamic cultural, commercial and tourist center makes it one of the most important cities in Florida. A virtual gateway for the Caribbean and South America, Miami’s economy receives a tremendous boost from the import/export industry, international finance, cargo transport and warehousing. Although the city attracts people from all over the world, it’s best known for its Latin influence and culture. Retirees love to settle in such upscale communities as Coral Gables and Miami Beach whereas Kendall is more popular among families. A city as diverse and expansive as Miami offers something for everyone, from pulsating clubs and bars to symphony concerts and art museums, sprawling malls to quaint family-owned shops, beautiful beaches to lush green golf courses, contemporary ballet and opera to children's attractions and entertainment. Add to this combination a bustling international airport and the busiest cruise port in the world and there’s no denying that Miami is a city bursting with life.

Miami is packed with culture as evidenced by such attractions as the Miami City Ballet, Art Deco Historic District, New World Symphony and some of the best art museums in the country. Miami’s copious beaches make the area perfect for water play while its lush landscaping provides the backdrop for world-class golf greens. Miami is well known for its sizzling nightlife and South Beach is THE spot for sophisticated clubs and bars such as the ever-popular Mynt and LIV. Bayside Marketplace, downtown, gives you a taste of “down-home” Miami with its delectable cuisine, amazing shops and lively music right along the waterfront. Calle Ocho in Little Havana opens the door to authentic Latin culture, art, food and, of course, Cuban cigars. If you have kids, a trip to Zoo Miami is sure to be a hit as this tropical zoo and garden houses over 2,000 wild creatures from as far away as Asia, Australia and Africa. Other children’s attractions include Monkey Jungle, Jungle Island and Seaquarium where you can take a dip with live dolphins.
