Miami, often dubbed ‘The Magic City’, basks under the permanently blue skies of Southern Florida and moves to a heavy Cuban-infused beat. Perpetually skating the line between tropical beach town and urban metropolis, Miami shirks from the conventional and dances with the eccentric. Hints to a sleepier past lie in the fine 1930s architecture and the celebrated Art Deco stylings of the Venetian Pool.
Miami stands resolutely on the Atlantic coast, overlooking the blue-green cyan of the Biscayne Bay. * More than half of the population speak Spanish and Cuban culture plays a key role in everything from politics to the local street food. * Flagler’s famous railroad was the spur that brought development and progression to Florida. This expansion continued throughout the war and into the 1920s, bringing one of the largest collections of Art Deco architecture in the world.
