I've lived in Miami since the age 7 and I am now 24. I love the city for its nature escapes, night life, the growing artistic culture, and the Latin flavors found in every corner. like every city of course there are things that could be better. The public transportation system is poor, without a car in this city it is hard to survive. The real state market is one of the most expensive in the country! makes it hard for young people to start buying homes and settling roots here. My experience with the school system is something I'm truly grateful for. It's not difficult to find programs within the school systems that appeals to the students future career interest, this is important. The crime rate in the city however is definitely a concern.
Miami is a city of opportunity and adventure. There is nearly infinite things to see and do here. However, I personally believe it's hard to have fun when you're constantly worried about safety! Driving in Miami is worrisome. Most people are speeding, not paying attention, driving recklessly, or just don't take much care, and it really take's the fun out of exploring!
