My Hometown: Miami Gardens FL

I lived in Miami Gardens, Florida from the time I was one years old until I graduated from high school in 1978. The population is small with a diverse international presence. The area is mostly suburbs with apartments and older subdivisions. There are a few new subdivisions that are really nice. For example, there is Coconut Cay, which has homes valued into the half a million dollar range. You'll also find some exotic cars and professional football players who live there. If you know exactly where they live, you may even take part in some celebrity watching. There are quite a few churches and other religious buildings in the area. There are several decent schools in the area including high school, junior high and elementary which are in the Dade County school system. There is also bus public transportation. The Sun Life Stadium is located in the city, which was originally Joe Robbie Stadium. It was built for the Miami Dolphins. Sun Life is also home to the Florida Marlins. It's not unusual to see the Goodyear blimp during games. There are special events held throughout the year at Sun Life, such as the annual Jazz festival. The traffic is not bad even when there are games or events. There are not any major malls in Miami Gardens although; there are quite a few strip malls. There is no real night life and never has been. You can find a variety of restaurants with fare from around the world, such as Cuban, Caribbean cuisine, Asian and Italian just to name a few. There are no beaches because it is located five miles inland. Publix which is one of the largest employers in the state has a distribution center here. I like the city and still have family there. I get home for a visit at least twice a year.
