City of Miami, Florida

Miami is a city of everything. It’s fast-paced big business and laid-back beaches, loud nightclubs and quiet museums all rolled into one. This is a city where people work hard and play even harder. The metro area of Miami is the eighth most populous metro area in the country and the most populous in Florida.

More than anything else, Miami is an international city. It has an incredibly diverse population, but the majority of its citizens are from Latin American countries, primarily Cuba. This has lead to many world renowned Latin American and Caribbean restaurants cooking in the style that has now become known as “Floribbean”.

Downtown Miami is a thriving business center with the largest concentration of international banks in the country. It has the second largest performing arts center in the country, more museums and theaters than any other Florida city, a flourishing fashion industry, and a sports team in every major league.
