The greater Miami area has one of the largest LGBTQ communities in The United States. The influx of alternative lifestyles and the allies who support them began in the 1980s when neighborhoods like South Beach were experiencing a decline in popularity as the Baby Boomers who built them retired or moved to the suburbs. This influx of fresh eyes, creative talent, and ambitious vigor has breathed new life into declining neighborhoods and reinvigorated portions of Miami that many had previously written off.
Today living in Miami is a place where people can feel welcome, accepted, and be themselves with the support of their fellow community members. While the beating heart of this community lives in places like Wynwood and Little Havana, the clubs along Miami Beach call to the adventurous on the weekends.
Fun and Excitement
Miami Beach was once a relatively quiet community but over the past forty years or so it has developed into Miami’s Party Central with miles of clubs, bars, and entertainment venues stretched along the golden sand beaches. Rock stars, rap stars, Hollywood elite, and socialites from all over the world have made Miami Beach their playground and it’s not uncommon to see their likes at clubs, on the beach, or shopping in the amazing boutiques that dot this electric community. The young and the beautiful flock here to see and be seen while they play all through the day and night in one of the most vibrant, most accepting communities in the nation.
Despite its reputation, living in Miami isn’t just about partying in the sun. In fact, over 70% of the population in the greater Miami area lives a traditional family lifestyle!
Indeed, Miami is still home to several quite residential neighborhoods like Coral Gables and Doral where families with young children can start a life, raise a family in peace, and enjoy the perks of a suburban lifestyle just minutes from work. Comfy single-family homes tucked away in the lush greenery call to a young generation of parents who recognize the value of being close to a financial hotspot but crave the simpler life that goes along with suburban living.
Making Your Life in Miami Easier
The common denominator among all of the people who live, work, and play in Miami is that they love living life to the fullest (even if that means soccer games with the kids on the weekend). The one thing nobody wants is to be tied down by necessary but annoying household chores. In fact, over 70% of us say that we simply don’t have the time to devote to cleaning house.
