Miami is the second-largest city in the state of Florida, after Jacksonville, and currently has a population of over 419,000 in the city proper. However, Miami anchors one of the largest metropolitan areas in the entire United States, the Miami Metropolitan Area, which is the eighth-largest defined metro area and the fourth-largest urban area in the United States.
Miami today is classified as a world city, which means it has major ties to most populated areas of the world, and is known as the “Gateway of the America’s.” Miami is also home to the largest Spanish-speaking population in the state of Florida (and one of the largest in the U.S.).
The land that Miami sits on has been inhabited in some way, shape or form for thousands of years, but has only been settled by Americans since the early 1820’s. Growth during much of the 19th century was slow, but near the end the railroad came to the area, which helped it expand.
Miami hit its stride in the 20th century, growing rapidly thanks to the rise of the Port of Miami, though the Great Depression – coupled with the 1926 Miami Hurricane and the Florida land collapse of the late 1920’s – slowed development. Miami reemerged after the end of World War II, and today Miami is in the middle of a large economic boom that has seen the city grow tremendously.
During the summer months, average highs in the city tend to reach into the low-to-mid 90’s, with overnight lows generally dropping down into the mid-to-upper 70’s. Winter temperatures are mild, with average highs generally reaching into the upper 70’s and overnight lows usually dropping into the low 60’s.
Miami actually receives the most rainfall of all major U.S. cities, but mainly because of the weather cycles; from May to October, Miami sees a lot of hurricanes, and Miami is one of the most likely places, statistically, to be hit by one. This can affect auto transport during the late summer and into the fall, since auto shippers don’t want to get hit by a hurricane while in the area.
