As a resident of over 13-14 years of Miami, I can safely say I've done my fair share of learning about Miami. Perhaps my favorite parts of Miami are definitely its people and its food.

Miami has such a wide range of delicacies and is incredibly diverse in its people. The foods are more than drool-worthy and one of my favorite dining spots is the Versailles Cuban Bakery & Restaurant; the Cuban cuisine is simply to die for!

However, like all things, there are also downs to living in such a diverse and populous Miami. Unfortunately, the property costs are through the roof! Most apartments will cost you no less than around $1,000, so imagine the houses! Absolutely insane, soon I'll have to move out if the prices get any higher!

Overall, Miami is a definite tourist attraction, but alas, it may be just that with the residential pricing so high.

Miami is an amazing city because you will never get bored here! There are so many things to do like museums, concerts, festivals, restaurants, theatres, and so much more. If you have a family and are interested in schools in Miami, there is such a great variety of schools and Coral Gables has a highly recommended elementary school that your kid can attend even if you live in Miami: Sunset Elementary. It is part of Miami Dade County! The only thing that isn't as satisfactory to me is the fact that in some areas of Miami there isn't a bid diversity of people; most are Cubans. If you are looking for a more diverse community I would recommend researching the different areas of Miami!
Miami is "The Magic City"! Beautiful people, exciting places and a influence of Spaniard, Latin American and Caribbean Culture. It is a giant playground full of constant adventure, bustling with the sound of Salsa, Merengue, HipHop there is a little Havana, Chinatown and Little Haiti you will never feel out of place in this tropical paradise. Opportunities are bountiful everywhere, whether that is through the influential arts that can be seen on the Wynwood Art Walls, Art & Science Museums, Zoos, Food & Wine Festivals, National Champion Baseball, Basketball & Football Teams there is always something available for everyone's taste, family friendly and romantic getaway for honeymooners. Miami is the beautiful destination where their inhabitants live where everyone loves to vacation.
