Miami-Dade County Reviews

I like the diversity I see in Miami Dade County. Everyone sees you as the person you are, not anything else. Everyone is friendly and always lend a helping hand. Everything is very affordable and you can live a very sustainable life here, surrounded my family and others you love. The nightlife is amazing, one of the many reasons tourists visit here so often in addition to the beaches, attractions, and nice weather all year round. Something I will like to see change in my community is traffic! I can't say anything bad about my community but if I had to say, the traffic is unbearable on some occasions. Hope that clears up how impeccable my neighborhood is!

I have lived in Miami-Dade County my entire life. It has a vibrant culture and overwhelming diversity. A great nightlife and many attractions as well as historic areas and museums. As for living in Miami-Dade County, day-to-day life is quite easy to adapt to and there are many great residential areas to make a home out of. Necessities such as supermarkets, gas stations, and medical offices are always within reasonable distance. Overall, a very good place to live!
I love the diversity. Miami is a place where you can expect to experience different cultures without having to leave the country. One thing to know, you'll never be bored with the different food options. If you're interested in the night life, there's several locations throughout the city and we have beach weather about 360 days out of the year! However; the city is very congested so expect to pack your patience when commuting no matter the time of day.
