Miami is often called the "magic city," and anyone who has been there has probably felt at least a little bit of that spark. Located on the Miami river between the Atlantic Ocean and the Everglades, the city has a population of approximately 390,000 people and it is marked by its diversity, vibrant atmosphere and subtropical climate. Home to a large Hispanic population, you can find people of Cuban, Columbian and Mexican descent, among other nationalities. This gives the city a distinct Latin flavor in many areas. Because of the location of this city, it is also known as the "gateway to Latin America."

In terms of south Florida apartments, it is hard to find somewhere as slick as Miami. The good news is that when it comes to large U.S. cities, rents in Miami are actually on the reasonable side.

Home to top-rated sports teams such as the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Heat, there are also over 100 parks in the city and numerous opportunities to experience arts and culture.
