South Florida is warm, magical, and exciting! Founded in 1896, Miami is one of the youngest cities in the U.S. and it’s one the biggest tourist destinations in the country. The area is home to a large Latino population; it’s colorful, culturally diverse, and offers one of the best year round climates in the world. South Florida is best known for Miami and Miami Beach, but it should be noted that these are separate municipalities and are very distinct. Miami’s modern downtown is known for its skyscrapers and elevated train lines, while Miami Beach is best known for its pastel colored Art Deco hotels and white sand beaches. However, there is far more to the area than just downtown and the beach. There are many other nearby neighborhoods, which are great places to visit—Little Havana, Coral Gables, and Coconut Grove, to name just a few. Also, just southwest of Miami lies the Florida Keys, the best scuba diving spot in the U.S.!
