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.

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.
The City is amazing in all aspects. You will never be bored because there is just so much to do! From the variety of beaches to Wynwood Walls you will always have a great time! The University of Miami, Florida International University, and Miami-Dade College are the main Universities and Colleges in the Miami area and they all like to help with the community. You will always find a UM, FIU, or MDC student anywhere you go! Miami is very family friendly and supper diverse and with that comes great entreatment from people that come from all over the Globe!
