Southeast Florida and Miami-Dade County - Enjoy Miami.

When you think of South East Florida, you think “MIAMI” , but Miami-Dade County is made up of numerous cities. From the southern most city of Homestead all the way north to Aventura, there are approximately 40 miles. Here’s a brief overview of Miami, Miami Beach, and our cherished Miami Shores.

Miami is known as the "Magic City" and is recognized for its diverse culture and ethnicities. Miami, also known as the Gateway to Latin America attracts a tremendous amount of foreign born people and is recognized worldwide as an international hub. There is always something to do in Miami. Miami has been the host of many special events in film, arts, culture and entertainment; including Calle Ocho Festival, The Latin Grammys and The MTV Music awards to name a few. There are also numerous parks, public facilities, museums and monuments. And is Home of the Miami Hurricanes, Miami Dolphins, Florida Marlins, and The Miami Heat.

When you mention Miami, you cannot leave out Miami Beach, an International Mecca for travel, business and to establish a home. From its small hotels with modern lines along lower Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive to its major hotel chains along the beach. It´s Art Deco District and South Beach areas are world-famous. And let’s not forget the beautiful sandy beaches that bring incredible tourism from all over the world. Miami Beach will have its yearly Festival of the Arts to be hosted in 2007 by our own Coldwell Banker.

Lastly – Miami Shores the city that holds our heart, where we live, work and play. Known as The Village Beautiful, it is a small suburban neighborhood centrally located just minutes from Downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach. It´s considered a secret gem that few people know about. Its Real Estate ranges from Luxury Bay front homes (located right on Biscayne Bay) to 1920´s historic architecture. Activities include Golf, Tennis, a great community center and field house offering all kinds of sports and activities for all ages. With its own extremely efficient police force, its own government building or Village Hall, as well as library, there´s nothing Miami Shores can´t offer. Miami Shores is a neighborhood where your neighbors have your keys and kids play on the streets, a true village beautiful.

Miami is a city full of life and passion and once you visit you will want to come back for more. Whether to relax, work, play, fish or party, there is something for everyone to do.
