Steps from the Best City in the Country! 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) When you say you are living in Sweetwater, Florida, most people have no idea what part of the Sunshine State you can find my home. I live so close to Miami that you can walk to South Beach. The Carnival Cruise line docks right at the barrier islands, so I am seconds from launchin ...Read More g to all those incredible places around the world I love visiting.

The best areas in Sweetwater have to be the shopping. Although you could hit the strip in Miami and walk into boutiques of all sorts, I prefer the Dolphin Mall or Miami International Mall for getting my clothing on sale. The nightlife is off the charts, New York City has nothing on the clubs in Miami that don't get happening until after midnight.

The food in the Sweetwater area is so diverse, you could have your share of Spanish cuisine on one block, Italian the next, and then burger joints of all sorts all within blocks of each other. Read Less
