Yes, just west of Brickell.

I have to totally agree with this post. I absolutely love Miami. I love that sticky tropical heat. The nights when the sunset lives up to the cliche and turn everything orange and pink. Sweating late into night. The summer rain storms with the big round drops. Lounging next to or in the calm light-blue waters of the beaches on the weekends. The diversity of people here. So many people on this forum complain that people speak spanish in miami.... Why don't they just learn a little Spanish? Nothing impresses a Latina more than a gringo who can speak a little spanish and bust some merengue moves on the dance floor. I even love the infamous Miami Airport. Seeing people from Europe and South America coming and going. When I ever I drop someone off I end up getting a coffee and do a little people watching.

To me this city would be perfect if it improved and expanded the public transportation. Perhaps metro rails that led over the intercoastals to the beaches. 4 or 5 crossings strategically placed from south beach up to Fort Lauderdale. Yes I know that would be a very costly endeavor, but not having to drive everywhere would make this place perfect in my eyes. And the bus system on the beach is the only place it really works well. I know they are expanding the Metro Rail north to Dolphin Stadium and west to FIU. But going across the bay would be the winner.

I dunno. I am 26 years old and have been here since I was 19. I feel like I need to leave and go somewhere else while I am still young enough and not tied down to any real responsibilities...just to explore the world more. But, I just feel like I have already found my paradise. No matter where I go to visit, I may have a great time but there is nothing like coming home and feeling that hot Miami breeze when I get off the plane. Or seeing those palm trees rustling in the wind. Is that wrong do you think? To be so settled at 26? Well I need to decide with in the next month- whether or not to accept a job in California. Perhaps I will flip a coin. Anyways, great post. Me encanta Miami

Default kayak?

Dr. Rico,

I also just transplanted from the West and also bought a kayak to help the transition until I learn to sail or something. I laughed out loud when I saw your post! But, the marina at my condo won't let me keep my kayak there or launch there. Are there any parks or marinas you use to launch your kayak from? I don't care if there is a cost. So far I have gone twice from a canal off the bay in South Beach. I hope I can be as happy as you someday!

Thanks

I moved from Orlando to Miami and had a hard time at first as well. I would say it took me about 2 yrs to adjust. But all the points you brought out are so true. Once you recognize and grow to appreciate it's beauties you fall in love with the city in no time. I love it now and don't see myself moving from it.
