When you hear the word Miami, you might imagine sandy beaches, classic action films, and world class mojitos. While all of these are immortalized in Miami’s history, no one could ever truly describe what it’s like to live here. If you’ve ever had the pleasure to visit, you may have learned Miami is also a paradise for culturally thriving food, art, nightlife, and more.
Established in 1896, Miami is home to some of the countries most beautiful historical sites including; Vizcaya gardens, the Venetian pools, and a castle built from coral with an undying love story. Over time, the neighborhoods within would earn their own names such as Coral Gables, South Miami, Brickell, and the world famous art town, Wynwood. Less than 30 years after the city became official, Miami Beach would join the rankings and along with it, Art Deco Drive. The beaches earliest visitors include Frank Sinatra and the Beatles, and more recently has become an international attraction as the host of events such as the Miami International Boat Show, and the Food and Wine Festival.
The beautiful history and celebrity sightings of South Beach may be second to none, but the extravagant architecture and futurism of downtown is likely to hold a relentless spot with many. Geometrically mind bending condos overlook the rooftop pools, while the neon lights from 24 hour night clubs glow softly below the window panes. The streets are painted with the creativity of students in the colleges nearby, and the best Churrasco in town is just a few floors down. It’s no wonder downtown Miami and Brickell are often the final choice in Miami real estate for professionals, students, and couples worldwide migrating to Florida. Regardless of where you decide to rent or purchase a home in the city, you will always be within 30 minutes of South Beach, Coconut Grove, Brickell, and Bayside, and public transit is available until late night.
