A Lifestyle That’s Appealing To All
Simply put, there is no better place than Miami to live, work and play. Miami combines the appeal of a tropical resort with all the benefits and opportunities that come with living in a major metropolitan area.

And who wouldn’t want to live in a place where you can enjoy being outdoors all year-round?
Fascinating Cultural Diversity
With more than half of its population born outside the United States, Miami offers a rich and colorful tapestry of cultures, customs, sights, sounds and flavors. Miami’s strategic position as the “Gateway to the Americas” makes it one of the most fascinating and diverse cities anywhere – a hub of international life, culture and commerce. Miami itself is home to many different communities and neighborhoods, each serving up its own distinct sights, sounds, rhythms and flavors.
Endless Arts, Culture & Entertainment
Broadway road shows, cutting-edge theater, symphonic masterpieces, music, dance and art from around the world…Miami has it all! Miami’s cultural offerings are among the most diverse and vibrant of any urban area in the United States. From neighborhood galleries and community stages to major museums and the spectacular Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, every minute of every day can be filled with the endless possibilities afforded by Miami’s arts and cultural community. Miami is also home to popular attractions such as MetroZoo and Jungle Island.
Top-Notch Sports & Recreation
Miami is a sports enthusiast's dream, with championship teams at every level (professional, college and high school), top-notch venues (Dolphin Stadium, American Airlines Arena and Homestead-Miami Speedway), and world-class events (Ford Championship at Doral, Sony-Ericsson Open at Key Biscayne and NASCAR’s Busch Series and Nextel Cup). For those who wish to be more than a spectator, Miami provides endless opportunities for sports and recreation with magnificent parks and beaches (including 84 miles of green space and coastline) plus numerous golf courses, tennis centers and other venues.
