History of Miami

According to legend, Ponce de Leâ€n was searching for the Fountain of Youth in the 16th century when he discovered the site where Miami now stands. For many years, population growth in the area was fueled by retirees fleeing colder climates, but in the 1980s, millions of Cuban migrants joined their ranks. Today, the Magic City is one of the most culturally diverse metropolitan areas in the United States, creating an equally exciting events and theater scene throughout the city. From vibrant street art and salsa clubs to a world-class, much-beloved baseball team not to mention those gorgeous art deco hotels ‘Miami is a must-visit city for lovers of music and culture.
