Miami is a favorite destination for those who want to have a fantastic holidaying abroad. The vanity of the city, the night life, the beauty of its sea and shopping centers with prices lower than any other tourist town in the country attract people worldwide who seek summer weather and the diversity of cultures.
Some people won’t even believe that Miami is a young city. Just over 100 years ago the area was nothing but a mosquito-infested swamp with 300 inhabitants on average. The city and the Miami River were used as an entry point for Indian trade. Until Henry Flagler, “father of the city” and a partner in oil producer, Standard Oil, brought a railroad to South Florida and enlisted the help of other visionaries to develop the place. Hotels were raised; bridges built, the port, redone, and electricity arrived. A narrow strip of coast was named Miami – freshwater, in Indian language – and was transformed into the city we know today, with nearly five and a half million inhabitants and one of the top tourist destinations in the United States.
Especially for those who speak Spanish, the “Capital of Latin America” is the nickname given to the city. Do not be surprised to walk into a store and be served in Spanish, since 75% of the population is Hispanic origin. The Hispanic mixture contains exiled Cubans trying to escape from political and economic tribulations of their country, workers from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and many Colombians who look for new jobs. Brazilians are also in constant flux that search of better economic and social conditions in the United States.
With the air of Latino touch, Miami managed to gather the perfect invitation for a trip in one place: the organization and the American lifestyle, the beaches and the typical climate of tropical countries and numbers of shopping centers worth the trip. The city allows diverse experiences into one place with a culture and an attitude promising unique combination between beach atmosphere and business center, the Caribbean and Latin world with European and American. The result was an interesting art scene, a great cuisine and nightlife that certainly able to entertain everyone – all in a landscape of beautiful beach and sea green, filled with beautiful people and very luxurious environment.
