Explore Florida City
Drive south of Miami, north of the famous Florida Keys, and you'll find yourself in Florida City, a rural green oasis offering a well-deserved downtime from the hustle and bustle of Miami.
Incorporated more than a century ago, Florida City is one of the southernmost cities in mainland Florida, known primarily as a Miami suburb and a major agricultural area.
The city lies to the south and west of and is contiguous with Homestead (hence, the greater Homestead-Florida City area), 18 miles southwest of Kendall and 28 miles southwest of Miami.
It is home to 11,928 residents as of the latest US Census.
While Florida city is an ideal area for anyone to visit, offering proximity to Miami (the place to be when in Florida), the city is often overlooked by tourists due to its more subdued, rural vibe.
Yes, folks, just like its neighbor, Homestead, Florida city is a haven of greens and blues (well, mostly greens).
It is ALSO a well-known agricultural area, which means it boasts a variety of state and national parks that give visitors an abundance of outdoor activity options.
It isn't tagged "The Gateway to the Florida Keys and Everglades" for nothing, you know!
These top tourists spots showcase local Florida wildlife, picturesque views of nature(both on land and water), snorkeling opportunities, boat tours, hiking, camping, kayaking, and the likes.
Florida city also offers tourists several notable shopping areas to visit --though not as plenty as you'd hope-- with the top spot taken by The Florida Keys Outlet Marketplace, a go-to retail therapy destination, AND a popular stop-off point for travelers going to the Keys and Everglades.
The marketplace is an open-air facility, includes plenty of free parking, and features more than 50 individual outlets selling everything from housewares and kid's stuff to clothes and shoes for the whole family.
Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, and Nautica are a few of the most popular brands.
Another popular local hangout is the "Robert is Here" roadside fruit stand (though technically situated in Homestead!), a farmers' market that sells a wide variety of local produce and prepared food items like honey, barbecue sauce, and salsa, and arguably, the world's best milkshakes!
It's also like a small petting zoo since there are always cows, goats, chickens, and turtles milling around, and many of them love cuddling with visiting children and their parents.
The city also shares a few tourist attractions with Homestead (due to the proximity), so Florida city tourists can explore The Coral Castle Museum and watch some intense racing at the Homestead-Miami Speedway while they're here.
Oh, and don't forget the countless tourists' spots in Miami that they can visit in just a short drive!
Indeed, there's no shortage of fun and excitement when in Florida city!
