Miami is a city on the Atlantic coast of the United States, located in the southeastern part of the state of Florida. It is surrounded by Everglades National Park to the west and Biscayne National Park to the east. Miami comprises several islands, including artificial ones, such as Miami and South Beach. The Miami region enjoys a tropical climate with two seasons: a hot and humid wet season, which corresponds to summer, and a mild and dry season, which corresponds to winter. The annual sunshine hours are high, averaging around 3,150 hours per year.

History & Culture

The name Miami comes from a word of the Tequesta Native Americans, who were native to the region they called "Mayaimi," meaning "sweetwater." The Biscayne Bay, which houses the city, was discovered in 1513 by Juan Ponce de León, a Spanish conquistador, but the first settlers didn't arrive until 1800. The city experienced its first major population boom due to its non-enforcement of Prohibition, and the second boom occurred with the rise to power of Fidel Castro, leading to the immigration of over 500,000 Cubans to Florida. Today, the city is primarily known as a highly renowned beach resort, and its marina is one of the largest in the world.
