What is Miami-Dade County like?

April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Miami-Dade County is a well known region in southern Florida. Not only is it the cruise ship capital of the world, but it has a large city-based population—despite the fact that a third of the county is located in the Everglades National Park. Situated at the southeast tip of the Florida peninsula, Miami-Dade County stretches over 2,000 square miles and includes cities such as Miami, Coral Gables, Florida City, Miami Beach, North Miami and Hialeah. There is a nice mixture of small, medium and large towns in the region.

Apartments in Miami-Dade County are fairly plentiful and easy to find. Over 2,300,000 people live in this region, and because of that there is a wide variety of rental options available. Traditional big city apartments can be found in downtown Miami, but there are plenty of other choices as well.

With the Florida Keys to the south, Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Everglades National Park right in the heart of the county, scenery is just one perk of living in this area. Miami and other large cities provide ample culture and nightlife, but there are smaller cities and towns to choose from as well. Whether you are a nature lover or simply enjoy city living in a warm climate, Miami-Dade County is a great place to live.
