Widely renown as a “melting pot,” South Florida’s residents represent many different cultures spanning across the globe. Because of this, the tri-county area is made up of a variety of exotic dining options, cultural attractions, and international businesses. South Florida’s strategic location also lends itself as a popular trade spot, with commodities passing daily through its seaports (Port of Miami and Port Everglades) and airports (Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport).
South Florida, the City of Miami in particular, lays claim to the title of “Gateway to the Americas,” and as a result, the area has become a popular second-home spot for many international investors to both reside and locate their business. Due to the strong cultural and linguistic ties, as well as its close proximity to Latin American countries, the area also serves as the home to many Latin American corporate headquarters and exudes a large participation in international business.
