Situated in Miami-Dade County, Miami is located at the southernmost tip of Florida. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Everglades, the city is spread over an area of 143.15 sq km.
Miami has a tropical climate. Summers are hot and are accompanied with thunderstorms. The climate in winter is warm and dry (the best time to visit).
Incorporated as a city in 1896, the area was originally inhabited by the Tequesta Indians and was later claimed for Spain. The city prospered after the arrival of the railroad and is now an important port of entry and cruise ship stop.
The population of the city is around 600,000 with about half of the community of Hispanic origin. Due to its easy access to the ocean, mild climate, tantalizing beaches, and the flamboyant lifestyle of the people, the city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US.
