Sun-kissed beaches and art-deco beauties make an alluring backdrop to Miami’s other charms – a burgeoning arts scene, creative cuisine and blazing nightlife.
The City of Miami is located on the Atlantic coast of Florida at the southern tip and is one of the most popular cities visited by tourists from around the world. Placed between the Everglades to the west and Biscayne Bay on the east; it is also the sixth most densely populated major city in the United States.
It is a major center and a leader in finance, commerce, culture, media, entertainment, the arts and international trade.
Miami is also known as “The Magic City”, and this nickname comes from its rapid growth in terms of population. It is also nicknamed “The Capital of Latin America” because of its high population of Spanish-speakers.
This city was named after the Mayaimis, an American tribe that lived in the area at the time of European colonization. Mayaimis means "big water".
Miami and Miami Beach are actually two distinctly different cities. Miami Beach, located on the outer bank is almost exclusively tourist orientated, and consists mainly of hotels and vacation apartments. Miami, located on the mainland, is a cosmopolitan city with a distinctly Latin American flavor. However, both of them offer many excellent restaurants with a diverse selection of cuisine. Fresh seafood is the local specialty.
The city of Miami is split into many different sections, roughly into North, South, West and Downtown.
The heart of the city is Downtown Miami and is technically on the eastern side of the city. This area includes Brickell, Virginia Key, Watson Island, and PortMiami. Downtown is Florida's largest and most influential central business district. It is home to many major banks, courthouses, financial headquarters, cultural and tourist attractions, schools, parks and a large residential population.

The PortMiami is the largest cruise ship port in the world and one of the largest ports in the United States. The port is often called the "Cruise Capital of the World" and the "Cargo Gateway of the Americas".
East of Downtown, across Biscayne Bay is South Beach. The southern side of Miami includes Coral Way, The Roads and Coconut Grove. Coral Way is a historic residential neighborhood; Coconut Grove is the location of Miami's City Hall and also features many nightclubs, bars, restaurants and bohemian shops. It is a historic neighborhood with narrow, winding roads and many parks and gardens such as Villa Vizcaya, The Kampong and the Barnacle Historic State Park.
The western side of Miami includes Little Havana, West Flagler, and Flagami, and is home to many of the city's traditionally immigrant neighborhoods.
The northern side of Miami includes Midtown, a district with a great mix of diversity with many West Indians, Hispanics, European Americans, bohemians, and artists. This part of the city also has notable African American and Caribbean immigrant communities such as Little Haiti, Overtown and Liberty City.
Few cities are as blessed as Miami when it comes to natural beauty. Sparkling shores lapped by aquamarine waters set the stage for a memorable array of adventures. Come join us at one of the state's – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots.
