Miami — For a Great Life in the Sun
Florida is known as the Sunshine State for a very good reason — the weather is fantastic all year round which allows people who are visiting and those who choose to make the cities in the State their home bases enjoy a lifestyle that is firmly focused on the outdoors. It’s no surprise then that the Florida quality of life is attracting more and more homeowners to Miami (itself boasting an average of 248 days of sunshine every year). Miami is without doubt one of the most exciting cities in a State that already brims over with fun, excitement, sea, sand, great leisure opportunities and fabulous cuisine.
However, there is really something special about Miami. It’s simply not difficult to see why someone would choose to live in the city and its surrounds of Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Bal Harbor, Star Island, and Coral Gables.
Firstly there is the the famous draw card of the Miami lifestyle – the beaches. Of all the beaches the one that is possibly the most famous is South Beach. Aside from the sparkling warm waters and unspoiled sands of South Beach there is also that Art Deco architecture that has seen South Beach take center stage in productions for both the Silver Screen and television. Take a seat at one of the incredible beach side watering holes, sit back and relax – watch the world go by and enjoy the sites of people from diverse cultures wandering and simply soaking up the sunshine.
South Beach, and indeed the entirety of Miami has a fabulous reputation for world leading cuisine. The choices are almost too numerous to list – Miami has a meal for every taste. Locals and visitors soon find their favorites though. Whether it’s the many Latin and Caribbean influenced meals like the every present Cuban Sandwich or any one of the many seafood options such as the ocean fresh raw fish chili and citrus flavors of Cerviche or the humble fish sandwich made with Mahi-Mahi or grouper there’s always something on the menu.
Then of course there are the incredible golf courses that can be found across Florida – with plenty within easy reach of Miami. Most of these courses in the area also have a bonus in store for those who want to enjoy 18 holes in spectacular surroundings – the views are almost unmatched by those offered by any other courses in the world.
For those who want to take a walk (or Kayak) on the Wild Side Miami offers natural splendor in abundance. There are over 170 State parks in Florida, but Miami offers one of the best – Oleta River State Park. Sprawling over 1,032 acres visitors can enjoy sights of manatees, crabs, a huge variety of bird life – and as a bonus can also beat the heat by enjoying some refreshment at a great ‘swim up’ restaurant.
For those who want a bit of retail therapy Miami also has a myriad of nooks and crannies where fantastic retro and vintage stores wait to satisfy even the most eclectic of tastes. If it is vintage that you are hunting for than the not-so-secret Antique Row is where you should be headed, there are home decor choices galore and also some great restaurants in the area.
Miami is also attracting those who want to enjoy the great attractions of the city all year round. Aside from the weather the city boasts great value for money when it comes to rentals. For around $2,000 a mid town apartment with great sea views and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows is easily within reach. At prices that are significantly lower than those in other big name urban areas such as New York or San Francisco Miami offers exceptional rental value – and purchasing a home can also lead to big savings.
