Miami, officially known as the City of Miami, is a vibrant coastal metropolis and the seat of Miami-Dade County in South Florida. It holds a population of 442,241, according to the 2020 census, making it the second-most populous city in Florida after Jacksonville. Miami serves as the core of the expansive Miami metropolitan area, which boasts a population of 6.138 million, ranking it as the third-largest metro in the Southeast and the ninth-largest in the United States. Notably, Miami is renowned for its impressive skyline, housing over 300 high-rise buildings, with 58 of them surpassing 491 feet (150 meters) in height.

Renowned for its prowess in finance, commerce, culture, arts, and international trade, Miami stands as a major center and leader in these domains. The metropolitan area of Miami holds the largest urban economy in Florida, with a gross domestic product of $344.9 billion as of 2017. A 2018 UBS study of 77 world cities identified Miami as the third-richest city in the United States and the third richest worldwide in terms of purchasing power. The city is notably diverse, with a Hispanic and Latino population of 310,472, accounting for 70.2 percent of the city’s residents in 2020.

Downtown Miami boasts a significant concentration of international banks in the United States and is home to numerous large national and international companies. The Health District, on the other hand, hosts major hospitals and health facilities affiliated with the University of Miami, including Jackson Memorial Hospital, the largest hospital in the nation, with 1,547 beds. Additionally, the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, serving as the University of Miami’s academic medical center and teaching hospital, plays a pivotal role in healthcare and research. PortMiami, the city’s seaport, stands as the world’s busiest cruise port in terms of both passenger traffic and cruise lines. Miami is the second-largest tourism hub for international visitors, surpassed only by New York City. Due to its strong commercial and cultural ties with Latin America, Miami is often referred to as the “Gateway to Latin America.” In 2022, the city ranked seventh in the United States in business activity, human capital, information exchange, cultural experience, and political engagement.

Miami experiences a tropical monsoon climate, characterized by hot and wet summers and warm and dry winters. Its sea-level elevation, coastal location, proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, and influence of the Gulf Stream significantly shape its climate. Winter high temperatures, spanning from December to March, typically range from 76.4 to 80.3 °F (24.7 to 26.8 °C). The coolest month, January, has an average daily temperature of 68.2 °F (20.1 °C). During winter, low temperatures occasionally drop below 50 °F (10 °C) for about 3 to 4 nights after the passage of cold fronts, which also bring minimal rainfall during this season.

Miami experiences two distinct seasons: a hot and wet season from May to October and a warm and dry season from November to April. The humid and unstable air masses during the hot and wet season contribute to daily thundershowers. The wet season is defined by an average daily dew point temperature above 70 °F (21 °C), with the onset typically occurring on the first day or a few days later. Conversely, daily rainfall decreases significantly when the average daily dew point falls to 70 °F (21 °C) or below, although in some years, a stalled front south of the Florida peninsula can prolong rainy conditions. Historical data from 1956 to 1997 indicate that summer in Miami ranged from April 16 to June 3 as the start date, and from September 24 to November 1 as the end date, with median dates of May 21 and October 17, respectively. During summer, temperatures range from the mid-80s to low 90s °F (29–35 °C), often accompanied by high humidity. Afternoons are occasionally relieved by thunderstorms or a refreshing sea breeze originating from the Atlantic Ocean. The majority of Miami’s annual rainfall of 61.9 inches (1,572 mm) occurs during this period. Dew points during the warm months range from 71.9 °F (22.2 °C) in June to 73.7 °F (23.2 °C) in August.

Miami hosts one of the largest ports in the United States, the PortMiami, often referred to as the “Cruise Capital of the World” and the “Cargo Gateway of the Americas.” It has consistently maintained its position as the top cruise/passenger port globally for over a decade, accommodating the largest cruise ships and major cruise lines. In 2017, the port served 5,340,559 cruise passengers. Furthermore, PortMiami stands as one of the nation’s busiest cargo ports, importing 9,162,340 tons of cargo in 2017. Among North American ports, it ranks second in cargo tonnage imported from Latin America, trailing only the Port of South Louisiana in New Orleans. The port spans 518 acres (2 km²) and encompasses seven passenger terminals. China is the port’s primary import and export country. Miami also hosts the world’s largest number of cruise line headquarters, including Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, and Royal Caribbean International. In 2014, the Port of Miami Tunnel opened, connecting the MacArthur Causeway to PortMiami.

As the largest city in South Florida and the second-largest city in Florida overall, Miami serves as the anchor of the expansive Miami metropolitan area, home to over 6 million residents. Despite the city’s population accounting for less than a fourteenth (1/14) of the metro area’s population, Miami stands out as an outlier, nearly twice the size of the next-largest city in the region, Hialeah. Additionally, Miami constitutes approximately one-sixth of Miami-Dade County’s population, making it the largest county in the state.

Miami assumes a prominent role in commerce and finance, boasting a robust international business community. Based on the level of presence of global corporate service organizations, Miami holds a Beta + level world city status according to the 2020 ranking conducted by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network. It shares this status with Atlanta, Dallas, and Houston. However, data from the US census between 2015 and 2019 highlights certain areas where Miami lags, such as owner-occupied housing, computer and internet usage, education beyond a bachelor’s degree, median household income, per capita income, while showing a higher percentage of individuals living in poverty. The city’s Gross Metropolitan Product amounts to $257 billion, ranking 11th in the United States and 20th globally.

Miami houses numerous large corporations, including but not limited to Akerman LLP, Alienware, Arquitectonica, Brightstar Corporation, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival Corporation, Duany Plater-Zyberk, Greenberg Traurig, Inktel Direct, Lennar Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, OPKO Health, Parkjockey, RCTV International, Royal Caribbean International, Sitel, Southern Wine & Spirits, Telemundo, Vector Group, Watsco, and World Fuel Services.
