What most people tend to think of when they think Miami, is palm trees, beaches, and hot sun- lot’s of it! But we know it’s much more than that, and today we’re headed to South Florida to take a closer look at the The Magic City.

From the thriving Arts and Design districts, to the flashy Art-Deco in South Beach, and from the street art spanning miles in Wynwood, to the thriving Caribbean and Latin American communities and cuisines, Miami is about as diverse as any American city can get. At only a little over 100 years old, and as one of the only U.S. cities founded by a woman in 1896, Miami is young, rapidly growing and changing, and has a unique and distinguished history that runs deep.

Today, Miami is cultural hub in every sense of the word. In addition to some of the most well-respected Art + Design Museums in the country, including the Frost Art Museum, Perez Art Museum, the Rubell Family Collection and more, Miami holds the single largest art exhibition in the world, Art Basel Miami Beach, which attracts visitors from all corners of the globe every December.

Tourism reigns in Miami year-round, being the largest cruise ship port in the world, and with weather that rarely dips below 60 degrees. Miami has unsurprisingly become and a place that attracts entrepreneurial spirits from all backgrounds. The ones who call Miami home, however, have a special personalized relationship with these areas of rich cultural depth and diverse history. We asked a handful of Miamians to show us their favorite spots in the city and explain what makes it so special to them! We love Miami and are glad to be a part of such a distinctive community. Read on about the places they selected below:

Uno de mis lugares favoritos en Miami es el Pérez Art Museum Miami , así que cuando @westelm me pregunto si tenía un lugar favorito donde quisiera mostrar mi #locallove ni pensarlo decidí que sería este, si vienen a #miami lo tienen que conocer, ES INCREÍBLE. Pasé un rato increíble con mi hermano, y sobre todo disfrute de hermosas esculturas y obras de artes. Este museo está ubicado en el downtown de la ciudad y está ubicado justamente al lado del Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. Una de mis partes preferidas es el trayecto entre estos dos museos, es un espacio increíblemente mágico lleno de árboles con flores amarillas y bancos blancos perfectos para pasar un tiempo relax, con una increíble escultura de cuerdas azules por Jesus Rafael Soto , un lugar que definitivamente debes conocer! #westelmlocal #ad – 📸:@alejotinoco
