I only came for two days of playing / But every time I come I always wind up stayin / This the type of town I could spend a few days in / Miami the city that keeps the roof blazon -- From "Miami" by Will Smith

South Miami was founded by people who just wanted to grow some avocados and mangoes. South Miami is a city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, approximately nine miles southwest of Miami. First incorporated in 1927, South Miami had a population of 11,657 in the 2010 U.S. Census. This is one scrappy little city! They have had their town nearly destroyed many times by hurricanes, from the first major recorded one in 1926 to Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and again when Hurricane Bonnie hit in 1998. But the town's residents have proven each time that they aren't going to let some little hurricane defeat them, and they always rebuild the town, better than ever.

South Miami is a short drive from Miami International Airport. U.S. 1 (Dixie Highway) runs through South Miami, and is a major commercial strip.

Finding an Apartment in South Miami

With the variety of rental properties in South Miami, how do you find one that fits your needs? A little bit of prep will make your apartment search go smoothly.

Would you be happy in a studio for rent, or would two bedroom apartments work better for you? If you need more space, you might want to check out house rentals or condos for rent. Do you have any pets? If so, pet friendly apartments should be high on your list. Some landlords and complexes may require a pet deposit. Also consider whether you'd like to sign a year-long lease or would prefer the flexibility of going month to month.

When you see a place you like, having necessary paperwork will give you a head start. Most landlords will want to see photo ID and proof of income (like bank statements and / or pay stubs). A credit and / or background check may also be required.

South Miami Neighborhoods

South Miami doesn't have named neighborhoods, but the major roads in South Miami are Sunset Drive, Southwest 64th Street, Southwest 72nd Street, Ludlam Road, and Southwest 62nd Avenue.

South Miami offers convenient access to city amenities and the beach. The city has many locally owned boutiques, businesses, and restaurants. The Shops at Sunset Place is an open-air mall with a 24-screen movie theater, and a Whole Foods Market is across the street.

You will most likely need a car to get around, since public transportation options are pretty limited here. At the same time, you can catch a bus if you need to, because the Metrobus network operates routes through the greater Miami area. There is also a Miami Metrorail station on Sunset Drive.
