With an average year-round temperature of 75 degrees, Miami Beach blends the pleasures of a tropical island with that of a sophisticated metropolis. The 7.2 square mile urban-paradise is the pulse of South Florida. From walkable neighborhoods, white, sandy beaches, clear aquamarine waters, and an extensive park system to its rich Art Deco and MiMo history, fine dining, and diverse and unique entertainment and cultural offerings.
Miami Beach is where everyone wants to come to live, work and play. It is home to unique museums, the New World Symphony and Miami City Ballet, over 17,000 luxury, boutique and resort hotel rooms, 12 public parks, and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
On the front lines of climate change, Miami Beach is often hailed to be writing the book on sea level rise adaptation and mitigation through its estimated $650 million stormwater infrastructure plan, which includes an integrated approach to planning and design that optimizes green and blue infrastructure.
