Deep south!

Miami is a major city located in the southeast corner of the U.S. state of Florida. Miami and the surrounding metropolitan area sits between the Miami River, Biscayne Bay, the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. It is the second largest city in Florida and the county seat (and largest city) of Miami-Dade County. It is also the largest city in the South Florida metropolitan area. The region's importance as an international financial and cultural center has elevated Miami to the status of world city; because of its cultural and linguistic ties to North, South, Central America, and the Caribbean it is sometimes called "The Gateway of the Americas."

Warm and humid

Miami, like the rest of South Florida, has a warm, humid subtropical climate year-round, and borders on a true tropical climate. The city occasionally experiences brief cold fronts during the winter, otherwise is warm or hot year round.
Because of its proximity to Latin America, Miami serves as the headquarters of Latin American operations for many multinational corporations. Several large companies are headquartered in or around Miami.
The beaches of Greater Miami draw visitors from across the country and around the world, and the Art Deco nightclub district in South Beach (located in Miami Beach) is widely regarded as one of the most glamorous in the world.

Hispanics

Miami is served by Miami-Dade County Public Schools which is the largest school district in Florida and the fourth largest in the United States. The district is also the largest minority public school system in the country, with 52% of its students being of Hispanic origin, 25% African American, and 6% non-white of other minorities. M-DCPS is also one of a few public school districts in the United States to offer optional bilingual education. Among the Colleges and universities in the area include Barry University, Florida International University, Johnson and Wales University, Miami-Dade College, St. Thomas University and the University of Miami.
