Getting to Know the Magic City
Renowned as a vacation destination with the 2nd busiest airport for international passengers in the U.S., and immortalized by Will Smith’s hit song “Miami” as the city where, “everybody party all day,” you would never assume that there are people who actually live and work in Miami.
Yet, Miami is well inhabited and established beyond its seasonal tourist population.
As home to over 2.5 million people with “rapid and sustained growth” while being one of the youngest major American cities, and exerting an ever-greater presence on American life and culture, Miami is aptly nicknamed the “Magic City”.
So yes... people do live here!
