Miami, Florida – A Hot Microcosmopolitan Paradise

Miami, Florida, is a frivolous, regulation-free, climate-doomed tax haven dominated by hot microcelebrities. It is also a yacht club haven and a place where scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and jai alai frontons are common activities.

It is a city that has a lot of structural failures. Last year three of the deadliest building collapses occurred here.

Where is Miams?

Miams is in southern Florida on the edge of the Everglades. It is part of the Miami metropolitan area and has a population of 2,300,434. The name may derive from the Tequesta Indian word Mayaimi, meaning big water or sweet water, or from a Spanish mission built there in 1566. The region was occupied for about a thousand years by the Tequesta people before the arrival of Europeans. In 1821 Spain ceded control of Florida to the United States, and Fort Dallas was built in 1836 as a base during the Seminole Wars. Beneath the city is the Biscayne Aquifer, which provides drinking water for most of South Florida.

What to see in Miams

Explore the Everglades, a river of grass that is home to 350 types of birds, 37 kinds of snakes, and of course, alligators! Rent a bike and ride through Shark Valley or take an airboat tour and get up close and personal with this amazing wildlife. The Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), designed by Herzog & de Meuron of Basel, is one of Miami’s best museums with modern international art and gorgeous indoor/outdoor spaces. South Beach’s Art Deco district is a must-see too.
