I love the fact that Hialeah is very diverse. You can meet people from all around the Caribbean, Central, and South America. This city is very family-friendly and a safe place to raise children! One of the downfalls of this city, is that it is quite packed. Very heavy traffic, however, everyone knows each other in Hialeah! Overall, Hialeah is the best city!

I love the diversity in Hialeah, it makes me feel comfortable and at home. I do not get looked at differently as I have in different places where I am a sticking out minority. I do not like the traffic, it is terrible. If it wasn't for the traffic it would be absolutely amazing!
I've lived here all my life, and overall you can really see that it its a city that is progressing! Very populated and has a unique communities all through out, ranging from all directions, yes literally, like east, west, North west and Northeast of the city, all contain different minority cultures, like African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanics from Cuba, Colombia, Peru, Central America and other places.
