Miami Skyline

Miami is one of the nation's most popular cities, known for its beautiful beaches, deep roots in Latin culture, close proximity to the Florida Everglades, and a booming tourism industry. Botanical gardens and nature preserves thrive in and out of the city and are major draws for outdoor lovers in the area. And as far as recreation is concerned, watersports reign supreme thanks to the beautiful waters of South Beach and Biscayne Bay.

What many people may not know is that along with the city's expanding skyline, Miami has become a major leader in finance and commerce within the past decade. Along with having the Port of Miami, important to international trade and known for being the “Cruise Capital of the World,” the city is where companies like Bacardi, Holland & Knight, Brightstar Corporation, Telemundo, Univision, Burger King, Carnival Corporation and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines are headquartered.

Another boost to the city's economy, of course, is its tourism industry. Miami welcomes guests from all over the world coming to experience the beaches, the cuisine, upscale shopping, exciting nightlife, world famous sports franchises, historic architecture, events like Mercedes–Benz Fashion Week Miami, and much, much more.
