Although Miami Beach itself has a beautiful climate, breath-taking oceans, and an overall tropical aura to it, the residents that live in the town, as well as the tourists that come to visit it don't know how to care for it. From endless heaps of garbage on the sand from Springbreakers to the non-stop partying every single day that ends up in fighting, violence, and crime. However, the one thing that is most beautiful about Miami Beach that will never change is the diversity. Within one city, one can find nationalities, races, and languages from so many different cultures at one time that one might be culture shocked at first!

Miami Beach is a very safe, loving, and beautiful community. Besides living right next to the beach, Miami Beach has so many more things to offer. Such as, amazing public schools, peaceful neighborhoods and various job opportunities. There are so many parks and different youth centers so Miami Beach is perfect for children. In addition, we have shopping areas, a diverse collection of dining and lastly, a free trolley that travels through all of the city. Everything is also within walking distance of your home. I will say that there are times where tourists take over the entire town but that is just a part of being a popular getaway.
I grew up in Miami Beach its an interesting place to be, the diversity is what makes this place great, there is a certain attitude on the beach that makes me feel that this is home and has been hard for me to find elsewhere. people are not judgemental everyone has the freedom to be themselves. As for the weather its very unpredictable; Its sunny then it rains.for example, I have been on the beach and I have seen lightning in the sunshine. The beach has become a very expensive place to live, small apt's go for 1200-2000 but Its never a boring time in this town, many tourists form all parts of the world come through and many events are happening all week long which makes it a little difficult to stay out of the party also making it tough to save money but there are many healthy places around yoga studios and smoothie shops, just make sure you don't commute during rush hour because a 20 min ride will turn into 1 hour.
