This suburb of Miami is also located within Miami-Dade county and is currently the 6th most populated city in the state.

This city is extremely rich in culture and is also home to the highest population of Cuban and Cuban American residents out of any other city in the US.

The city is also home to one of the largest Spanish speaking communities in the US, making it the perfect place for the Telemundo headquarters.

The city also offers a wide array of recreational activities for its residents to enjoy year round including 5 public swimming pools, an aquatic center, 3 different tennis centers and 14 incredible public parks. Its close proximity to the coast also makes for an easy trip to a number of southern Florida’s famous beaches.

Education is also a cornerstone of the community here as the city is home to several different private schools as well as its main public school system. It is a great alternative to the much busier and heavily populated city of Miami, but still well within striking distance for those who want to make a drive into the metropolis.
