Miami is a unique, very liveable, tropical-cosmopolitan paradise with much more to offer than mojito’s and South Beach! A city that has revitalised and even reinvented itself in certain regions over the last decade, there is a healthy, active, cultural lifestyle to be found in Miami for singles and families alike.
With a population under a million, great weather and a distinct culture, uniquely tolerant of differences, you may be drawn to move to Miami. A growing economic interest and tourism hotbed, there are also many potential economic reasons to live here.
With a cost of living index slightly over the American median, Miami offers a variety of neighbourhoods and home styles, from the Mediterranean architecture and beautiful landscaping of Coral Gables to beach front mansions, refurbished art deco buildings, great new condos and quaint townhouses
A car is a necessity if you’re choosing to live in Miami, as it is a city for drivers. Be sure to get a Sun Pass to add convenience in traversing the many toll highways. The transit system or Metrorail has had many upgrades and is a clean and easy way to get around Miami’s core, which is where you may find yourself working and playing, as this is home to the Miami financial district and also to many alcoves filled with great restaurants.
Miami offers all of life’s necessary amenities, including a fairly good school system with five schools rated ten out of ten by greatschools.org and a variety of grocery stores ranging from the Publix chain to Marky’s Caviar & Gourmet Food Store. The shopping also cannot be beat, from great design and decorating ideas at the Design District to upscale shopping in areas such as the stunning Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables or Bal Harbour Shops, a lushly landscaped, open-air mall that Miamians have enjoyed since 1965!
