Cathedral of St Mary in Miami, Florida:
Cathedral of St Mary in Miami, Florida
Miami is a city in southeastern Florida. As of the 2000 census, the city's population was 362,470, but the metropolitan areas's population was 5.4 million.

Miami has many links to Central America, Latin America, and the Caribbean, as well as being home to a large Spanish-speaking population, in particular a large Cuban community which makes up over a third of Miami's population. Because of these links with other parts of the western hemisphere, the city is sometimes known as the "Gateway to the Americas".

Miami is also the site of one of the largest and most important sea ports in the United States. The Port of Miami is used both for cargo, and passenger traffic, and is in fact the busiest passenger port in the country, and has been for over a decade. It is from the sea port that Miami gets two of its other nicknames: "Cargo Gateway of the Americas", and "Cruise Capital of the World" - the latter in recognition of the many cruise ships which sail from the port.

Attractions in the Miami area include:
Miami, Florida at night. The Bank of America tower is the building lit in pink.

Product Description:
  • The ultimate insider's guide to Miami and the Keys; go off the beaten path to discover the hidden places, stories, and neighborhoods that reveal Miami's true character, history, and flavor
  • Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides
  • Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 150 titles and 1 million copies in print worldwide
  • Appeals to both the local market (over 5 million people call the greater Miami area home) and the tourist market (nearly 14 million people visit Miami and the Keys every year)
  • Fully illustrated with 111 full-page color photographs

Miami and the Keys are the cultural and geographical gateways to the United States; where Latin America gracefully blends into North America, and land embraces the sea.

This unusual guide leads you along the fulcrum that is Miami and the Keys, laden with world-class architecture, sandy beaches, pristine waters, nightclubs, and trendy hotels. Beneath the well-polished surface lies a history and culture that strays far from the conventional, bubbling up through unexpected places, like a coral fortress built for a spurned lover, a divey laundromat that serves the sweetest café con leche you've ever had, or an enclave of houses built on stilts in the midst of the ocean. Lose yourself in a glass rainforest. Glide over the mysterious waters of the Everglades. Visit your own desert island. Drink the sweet nectar of the Cuban coffee gods. Venture into the "other" Miami, beyond the glitz and glamor, steeped in natural beauty and deep-seeded tradition. See why Ernest Hemingway called the Keys his home.

Though teeming with tourists, there are still plenty of hidden gems to be unearthed, you just have to know where to look...

    Product Description:
    A tour of Miami’s outposts of good food, design, retail, and more, this definitive travel guide will make you feel like a local no matter where you are from.

    Miami has a lot going for it: its shoreline, year-round warm weather, and a diverse population. So don’t just get caught in the bubble of fun but distracting Miami Beach. This guide will help you explore the city’s numerous neighborhoods —from Little Havana and Coral Gables to the Design District —and discover its full potential. Monocle will introduce you to the dynamic arts and culture scene that is surely the most vibrant and exciting in the U.S., the best bars and restaurants —often more laid-back than in other big North American cities —and everything in between.

    Monocle’s team shares the knowledge it has acquired from regular pilgrimages down south from its bureaus in Toronto and New York, as well as its contacts and insider knowledge from being regular attendees at Art Basel Miami Beach. This is a guide that shows modern Miami for what it is —and without the tired bikini and sports-car clichés.

    • Used Book in Good Condition
    Product Description:
    It is where Fidel Castro raised money to overthrow Batista and where two generations of Castro's enemies have raised armies to overthrow him, so far without success. It is where the bitter opera of Cuban exile intersects with the cynicism of U.S. foreign policy. It is a city whose skyrocketing murder rate is fueled by the cocaine trade, racial discontent, and an undeclared war on the island ninety miles to the south.

    As Didion follows Miami's drift into a Third World capital, she also locates its position in the secret history of the Cold War, from the Bay of Pigs to the Reagan doctrine and from the Kennedy assassination to the Watergate break-in. Miami is not just a portrait of a city, but a masterly study of immigration and exile, passion, hypocrisy, and political violence.
