Miami House Sitting Has a Delicious Flavor To It

The “Magic City” as Miami is sometimes called can add a mouth-watering experience to your house sitting job. A city with almost 200,000 households, Miami in southeastern Florida has the seventh largest population in the United States. The ethnically diverse population of Miami has contributed, among other things, Floribbean cuisine – a unique combination of American cuisine with Caribbean and Latin American cooking styles. Seafood restaurants abound along the Miami River and Biscayne Bay. The restaurant chains Burger King, Tony Roma's and Benihana also call Miami their home.

Partitioned roughly into North, South, West and Downtown, Miami is one of the smallest cities in the USA in terms of land area.

Downtown - This is primarily the central business district where you find the headquarters of many global banks, cultural and tourist attractions, parks, schools but also many residences. Across Biscayne Bay is South Beach and to the northwest is the Civic Center where you find hospitals, research institutes and biotechnology centers.

South Miami - South Miami, includes places like Coral Way, The Roads and Coconut Grove with many old, historic homes and tree-lined streets. Here' you'll find the Miami City Hall, the Coconut Grove Playhouse, the tony lifestyle center Cocowalk as well as a string of nightclubs, bars and restaurants, the Coconut Grove Convention Center, private schools, parks and gardens like Villa Vizcaya and the Barnacle Historic State Park.

North Miami - This section of the city includes Midtown which has a very diverse population with a large number of European Americans, West Indians and Hispanics. The Edgewater and Wynwood parts of Midtown consist mostly of high-rise residential buildings while the Design District and the Upper East Side are where the more affluent residents live. North Miami is where you will find the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, second only to Lincoln Center and home of the Florida Grand Opera, as well  as the MiMo Historic District.

Music and Entertainment - Like its cuisine, Miami music is as diverse as its population. Conga and rumba from Cuba, bachata and merengue from the Dominican Republic, vallenato and cumbia from Colombia and samba from Brazil can be heard throughout Miami. These have added to the variety of reggae, soca, kompa, zouk, calypso and steel pan brought over by the West Indians and Carribean immigrants. The Winter Music Conference, the world's largest dance event is held in Miami as are the Ultra Music Festival and many other music celebrations and festivals.
