Miami is consistently ranked as one of the best cities to live in, in the country! From its sunny skies and beautiful architecture to the amazing culture, diversity, and nightlife — there’s something for everyone in this beautiful city.
Here are some of the reasons we love living in Miami.
PRO: ENDLESS NIGHTLIFE AND ENTERTAINMENT
Miami is well-known for its world-class nightlife and entertainment. Nightlight and entertainment districts like Downtown, the Wynwood, Coconut Grove, and South Beach all have their own unique offerings. There is no shortage of bars, events, festivals, clubs and music venues here.
PRO: CULTURE AND DIVERSITY
When we say diversity, we mean that you will likely meet someone from every part of the West Indies, Latin America and Mexico here. You’ll also find a constant stream (although much more in the summer) of tourists from all over the world, and meet a lot of snowbirds and retirees from northern states like New York, Boston, and New Jersey. Miami’s colleges also bring in a younger demographic of ex-pats from all over the country. Spanish is spoken in most parts of Miami as much as English, downloading Duo Lingo or the Rosetta Stone might help!
PRO: THE BEST BEACHES AND WATER IN THE MAINLAND UNITED STATES
Beaches across Florida are always ranked best-in-class on lists ranking the best in America. That’s because you simply won’t find anywhere else in the country with white sand beaches and crystal-like waters. Miami has beaches for everyone, from small, quiet and lazy, to big, active and full of tourists. Miami Beach and South Beach are the city’s most popular beaches.
PRO: ACCESS TO UNIQUE HABITATS AND WILDLIFE
From Everglades National Park to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, Biscayne Bay National Park, and so many more, Florida is home to some of the most unique ecosystems and animals on the planet. In Miami, you’re not far from being able to see wildlife like manatees, flamingos, dolphins, crocodiles, and alligators. Divers and snorkelers will appreciate having the largest coral reef system in the country, The Florida Reef System, right off the shore.
PRO: NO INCOME, INHERITANCE, and ESTATE TAXES
You read that right. Florida does not impose taxes on income, estate, and inheritance. This is a huge benefit for many retirees and families. In fact, you might be shocked when calculating the difference in taxes from a state like California compared to Florida.
