This exciting city dubbed 'the Gateway to the Americas' is the leading financial hub of the region and an international mecca where more residents speak Spanish than English. Author Mark Miller introduces readers to the astonishing diversity of ethnic neighbourhoods, where homeland languages and customs are preserved in restaurants, shops, and markets, explaining much of the city's vibrancy and appeal.Nearby are inviting beaches as well as wetlands and jungles and an archipelago of coral isles leading to raffish, bewitching Key West. Miller guides readers through Miami's districts - downtown, Little Havana, Little Haiti, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, and South Miami - then to Biscayne and Everglades National Parks and to the Keys, suggesting walks and drives throughout. The 2008 edition will be completely revised and updated to reflect this pulsating city's quickly-changing face, including a look at the brand-new, $44-million dollar South Miami-Dade Cultural Center, an ambitious multidisciplinary showcase for the performing arts.
