Downtown Miami Guide | Guide to Living in Downtown Miami

Miami

If you are looking for one of the fastest-growing, most desirable locations to live in Florida, downtown Miami is arguably the best. Combining an expanding arts and entertainment district with a thriving commerce center, downtown Miami has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few decades to become one of the most desirable places to live.

History

For thousands of years, indigenous tribes of Native Americans inhabited the area because of its favorable climate and access to food. The modern history of Miami begins with Julia Tuttle, a 19th century citrus grower who convinced Henry Flagler, a railroad tycoon, to expand his business into the area, thus becoming the “Mother of Miami”.

By the early 20th century, the famous “land boom” of the 1920s helped to populate the area and grow the town of Miami considerably. World War II and the influx of Cuban refugees after the rise of Fidel Castro helped to make Miami the major city that it is today. The rapid growth from around 1,000 residents at the turn of the 20th century to 5.5 million today is a testament to the popularity of the region. 

Homes

You can find homes in all shapes and sizes in the downtown area, from multi-story properties costing millions of dollars to small, two-bedroom homes that offer those on a budget a place to live comfortably. There are plenty of art-deco condominiums for those looking at high-rise living in sleek apartments with all the modern conveniences. Add to this the Italian-style villas that overlook the waterfront area and you have a great place to live in downtown Miami.

It helps that the downtown area offers excellent schools, such as following;

  • Downtown Miami Charter Choose from Kindergarten to 6th Grade
  • Southside Elementary School
  • School for Advanced Studies
  • Metropolitan International School
  • I Preparatory Academy

In addition, there are many well-respected schools just minutes away that make downtown Miami an excellent choice for families with children to raise. 

Why Choose Downtown Miami?  

There are good reasons to choose the downtown Miami area, starting with the excellent selection of properties that range from high-rise apartments and condos to Italian-style villas. Along with the aforementioned schools, there are other excellent reasons why this area is great for living.

You’ll find a wide range of influences, especially from the Latin American community that makes Miami one of the best places to find what you want while being minutes away from where you live.

 

If you want it all in one place, then downtown Miami is waiting for you. For individuals, couples, and families, the choices that this area brings along with the comforts make this a prime location to live.
