Miami: A Taste of Paradise
Situated near the southernmost point of the Sunshine State lies Miami, the dazzling cultural, economic and financial hub of South Florida. Home to over 6 million people in its metropolitan area, Miami is the seventh-largest city in the United States. Miami is considered a global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network – and, to some, this could be considered quite an understatement! Miami is not only the third richest city in the U.S. but also the largest city with a Latin-American population. As such, it is home to a dizzying array of cultural events and landmarks, in addition to an immensely powerful business scene. Miami hosts several annual festivals, including the Calle Ocho Festival, Coconut Grove Arts Festival, and Miami International Film Festival. The city is known for its diverse range of cuisine, which benefits from immense Latin American and Caribbean influences. Frost Art Museum, Frost Museum of Science and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens are popular destinations for tourists and locals alike, as are the beautiful, sandy beaches that dot Miami’s coastlines. For fast-paced living that offers something new daily, no city compares to Miami!
