    Growing fast with its population, Miami's offers a reality of social inequality and lack of eco-consciousness. From the ghetto to the most incredibly elegant skyscrapers, the differential unbalances are tangible. Missing sidewalks, bike lanes and an efficient public transportation, everyone must drive in Miami, negatively affecting individual's ability to communicate. Ironically most restaurants and bars are indoor sitting only. Miami Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is hardly ever visit by Miami residents. Even mannequins have plastic surgeries in Miami. The distortions on standards of beauty have sadly influenced even the youngest generations.
    Miami is not the city for raising a family unless you live in unique areas like Coconut grove or Coral Gables. With an openly diverse population of immigrants, the culinary variety pleased any taste..
    Art Basel has transformed Wynwood into another Brooklyn.
    Everyone loves Miami!

    Miami, Florida is my home town. I enjoyed growing up near the beach. A cultural experience is always at your back door. Miami is a diverse city! You get a NewYork and California vibe in one city. Shopping and entertainment is the best. As adolescent and teenager in Miami there is lots to do. Teen centers, community programs, youth sports and more. You're not to far a drive from the best theme parks in the world! On another note the school systems can improve. Miami communities are not as family oriented as other cities I've lived in.

    Miami has beautiful weather however, the construction that takes place here takes forever to complete. The school system is horrible, the night life is geared to those who are pretentious and only concerned about how others view them... no one really dances at the major night clubs on south beach! There are too many tolls on the highways... I mean why can't we have freeways like California? Why do we still allow smoking to happen inside night clubs instead of banning it like New York?
