Miami- for that matter most of modern, urbanized Florida- is relatively new. A region that took eons to form, brimming with life. The Everglades, the majesty of the Gulf Stream- yet still unaccustomed to human inhabitants. Miami, for its relatively young age, has seen it alll. It's like a rebellious teenager trying to compensate for coming to the party late and deciding to make up for lost time by drinking all the spiked punch in one shot. The city was founded by Julia Tuttle- one of the few back in that era spearheaded by a woman. It was later sprung open by Henry Flagler, who decided to stretch his northern railway all the way to its azure coast. And, since that day, since the day the coast was "inaugurated" and made into a premier holiday destination, the place has become an icon. A region where starlets and movie stars strut around, where mobsters conduct business, where Narcos smuggle in their goods. Miami has had many faces, but all of them have something in common, tatooed onto their eyes, you can see a dollar sign. Miami is a financial powerhouse, with more international banks than anywhere else. It is a city with a glint in its eyes, always on the move, always attracting tourists, business dealings, and the most powerful people in the world. It grew from an orange field, to one of the nation's most iconic and financially powerful cities.
Today, Miami is a huge city. Sprawling with hundreds of neighborhoods, each one with their one-of-a-kind identity; from Little Haiti, to Little Havana, to the Financial District, all the way through the radical arts district known as Wynnwood. It is a huge city with over 2,000 hyears of human habitation and dozens of migrations. A city that has seen its fair share of troubles, tragedies, calamities, and headlines. Currently, Miami is one of the nation's most iconic and celebrated towns. A place where you come to be seen, to be adored, to be photographed, to make a splash.
From hurricanes, to failed land booms, to the Great Depression, all the way to the Narco Wars, Miami is a city full of life, brimming with stories, bursting at the seams.
"A young city, Miami lacks the history, the roots, and the traditions of other major metropolitan areas. Everybody here is from somewhere else."
/Hundreds of changes have overtaken Miami during its years. Some for the better, some for the worse, still, it is a city always transforming, mutating, rising up and coming together. A city at the forefront of today's fad, and tomorrow's trend.
No other city in the nation is as future-proof as Miami.
Today, Miami is a town that is growing, spreading new wings, getting more leg room. A town where a fad, a celebrity, a natural disaster, a party gone out of hand, can make it flip its script and reinvent itself. It is a melting-pot of forces and cultures, people come here to find themselves and become something unique- something never before seen. Full of commerce, traditions, finances, history, and quaint little neighborhoods with deeply seated identities.
"If a theme runs through the history of Florida, it is this...something great happens, and someone comes along to mess it up."
- Eliot Kleinburg

A place with the best food, the most avant-garde art, and a movie location on every corner. Bear witness to a city that is constantly on the march, and ready to throw a party at the drop of a hat.
Miami is a pilgrimage everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. A city that begs tourists and lures them in with its sparkle. A captivating city that's eternally the backdrop of thousands of moview and TV shows- Dexter, Iron Man 3, Scarface, Miami Vice, America Crime Story, Narcos, Bad Boys, and more. Currently, the legacy of Miami continues to be immortalized through its citizens and visitors.

But to really get a sense of Miami and understand what drives its spirit, it is important to hit to highlights. Here's where locals and visitors think should top your list:
