Floridian of the Year
Miami - 'The Most Exciting City in the World'
The city of Miami was at the forefront of every trend in 2014.
Our Floridian of the Year, the city of Miami, captured the trends — and then some — that drove Florida in 2014. Tourism increased, with records set on all fronts. Real estate continued a strong recovery, with 11 straight quarters of price appreciation. Unemployment fell and construction employment increased. The county school district won national recognition for its improvement. The vibrant downtown-living scene rose to new heights, evidenced by chic nighttime crowds dining in Brickell, runners sweating along the bayfront, crowds in the aisles at the downtown Publix supermarkets and workers installing the sign for the new Whole Foods. Find out what's behind all these trends and more, in the full article.
