Yes, Hi Briana, well this is the Miami Forum. We talk a lot about Miami, we answer any questions you may have about Miami, and we have a lot of attitude and talk a lot of crap because of course this is Miami.

understand most of the Miami I experience is doral and south of the airport. I visit north Miami less than i visit broward. coming from homestead it is easier to get to broward than out to the beach and 95 is very very out of the way.
Yes this is annoying if you don't have someone along who can order for you. Then again you generally need someone to tell you which places are good and which aren't, so it can be a wash anyway.

Hello to all, the comments are interesting it seems many of you have only had the misfortune of seeing one side of Miami. Let me first back up and give some back ground on myself I was born in New York but raised in Miami for 19 yrs. moved back to New York and raised a family for 15 yrs. Now I am back in Florida I have experienced many areas of Florida, central fl., west coast and of course the east coast especially miami. Many of are correct I agree that if you are in south beach and many areas along the beaches people seem a certain way. Yet beneath that superfacial surface lye some wonderful down to earth people. But the same can be send for New York go to tribeca or soho you see much of the same. These trendy well to do areas sometimes do seems this way but when you dig deeper than just scratching the surface you will be pleasantly suprised. I should know I am 41 father of 2 great kids by they they live on the beach and drive average cars,work and go to college. Besides do'nt forget Miami is an international attraction and we import our snobs. I say embrace it all and everyone that is what keeps it interesting and remember (Gracias) means thank you.
