Miami

Why you'd want to live in Miami

Miami is one of the state's – and the world's – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area offers multiple enticements for everyone: The trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district. The bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana. The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis. Major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Boat shows and auto racing. Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas. An international airport and the world's busiest cruise port. The Miami area offers all of this – and so much more. via VISIT FLORIDA

Downtown Miami

It comes as no surprise that Downtown Miami is the city's most walkable neighborhood with a Walk Score of 86. Not only is this the heart of Miami, it's the commercial center of South Florida; home to banks, company headquarters, offices, shops, entertainment, parks, museums, and of course homes. In total, 13,703 people call Downtown Miami home, and when locals talk about 'downtown' they mean the Central Business District. Homes range from historic buildings – the oldest in the city are found here – to modern hi-rises. The Miami Metrorail and Metromover are right on your doorstep, however, the price you pay for convenience is a higher crime rate and fewer schools. via Movoto

Brickell

Keeping close to the heart of Miami the Brickell neighborhood is the second most walkable in the city with a Walk Score of 83. Sitting south of the Miami River this upscale neighborhood was Miami's Millionaire's Row and is today one of the largest financial districts in the country. Luxury condos and apartments provide high-rise living for the 31,759 residents and Brickell still has the millionaire's lifestyle with some of Miami's most expensive homes. Walk to the lifestyle center of the neighborhood, Mary Brickell Village, for its fabulous restaurants, bars, and boutique stores. via Movoto

Little Havana

Little Havana is one of Miami's best known and loved neighborhoods, and it's rated third in Miami with a Walk Score of 82. Located just west of Downtown Miami and south of the Miami River, Little Havana is home to 76,163 people, many of whom are Cubans. Residents can sample the vibrant atmosphere and culture that this neighborhood provides in the shape of festivals, excellent restaurants, music, street life, and a great sense of community. Schools are run by the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system and include the historic Miami Senior High School. via Movoto

Edgewater

With a Walk Score of 81 the twinned neighborhoods of Wynwood (north of Downtown Miami), and Edgewater (the coastal section), are the fourth best places to live in Miami for walkability. Edgewater's historic homes stand alongside high-rise residential towers, while the artsy Wynwood neighborhood has funky restaurants, cafes, and stores. Wynwood also contains the Miami Fashion District and it's been nicknamed 'Little San Juan' for its large number of Puerto Ricans, many of whom own the restaurants and markets. Together, these two neighborhoods are home to around 22,200 people. via Movoto

Overtown

Overtown is number five on our list with its Walk Score of 76 located just northwest of Downtown Miami. Today the neighborhood is on the up again and its 6,736 residents can use the Metrorail from Overtown Station to get around the city. The historic Lyric Theatre, Dorsey House, churches, and a museum are some of the attractions in Overtown, and there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants and shops within walking distance. via Movoto
