Conveniently close to University of Miami and Coral Gables, South Miami is another top pick by long-time Miami residents and natives. Residential neighborhoods are established and casual and are typically single-family homes, though a number of townhomes and condominiums exist as well. Very centrally located with excellent access to US1, highways and South Miami Hospital, South Miami is a great home base for work throughout Miami and access to superior public and private schools.
The dining and entertainment scene is strong here as well, with gourmet bistros and chef-run establishments co-existing side-by-side with national restaurant brands. Similarly, the independent boutiques for fashion, children, and home design create an eclectic counterpart to the major mall retailers at Sunset Place.
