Being barely a century old, Miami is already one of the more vibrant, colorful cities in America. It is very much so a multicultural city, having its most influence from the Latin culture. In many ways, Miami is more Latin than American. Spanning only 35 square miles, the half million citizens of Miami easily fill its streets and beaches. It is beautiful and attractive, drawing the 3rd greatest amount of international tourists (after LA and NY). With its warm weather all year and the largest cruise ship port in the world, Miami is definitely a hot spot for vacationers!
