It’s no secret that Miami has turned into a global city of choice for all. Over the past two years, we’ve seen a huge surge in migration – where businesses and their people, high net worth individuals, remote workers, crypto enthusiasts, families and investors of every size and scale have moved to Miami. Besides our great weather and beaches, factors such as pro-business policies, no personal income tax, more tax reliefs, a burgeoning art scene, versatile dining and entertainment options, plentiful greenery, and more have fueled this great migration.

Moving to a new city or neighborhood is a major decision in itself. Considering each neighborhood in Miami carries a distinctive vibe and lifestyle, for anyone moving to Miami, back to Miami, or simply within the city, picking the right neighborhood can be a tough choice. 

So, we’ve summed up every major Miami neighborhood in under a minute to help you make an informed decision before you move.

This “Manhattan of the South” is great for city lovers who enjoy a fast-paced lifestyle with every major convenience within walking distance.

Downtown Miami

This core neighborhood puts you in the middle of a hot art, culture, and entertainment scene with maximum public transportation options at every turn.


This urban neighborhood is a top choice for families looking for great waterfront living at a (comparatively) reasonable price point.

MidtownDesign District

This pairing is a top choice for young professionals looking to buy or rent in a non-waterfront neighborhood that affords walking access to lots of restaurants, shopping, art, and entertainment options.

Upper East Side & MIMO (Miami Modern)

This waterfront neighborhood is rich with history and charm and is a top choice for those looking for a more intimate, non-mainstream, artsy and design-focused vibe.

Coconut Grove

This urban village is a top choice for families and nature lovers who appreciate a slower pace of life with breezy waterfront options, yet proximity to all of Miami.

Key Biscayne

This island village is great for families and those looking to live off the beaten path with access to a quiet beach, national park, low-traffic streets, and great schools.

South Beach

This is the IT neighborhood of Miami. Known as vacation central, you’ll have easy access to hot beaches, nightlife, a versatile dining scene, and much more.

  • South of Fifth/SoFi - This is the high-end, less touristy pocket of South Beach.
  • West Avenue - This is the more residential waterfront of South Beach.
  • Sunset Harbour, Belle Isle & Venetian Islands

These residential pocket-neighborhoods are big on community, surrounded by water, and lie to the far-west of South Beach. The Venetian Islands are the more exclusive of the lot.


This is the more affordable, family-oriented, less crowded cousin of South Beach.

North Beach

This up-and-coming beach neighborhood has a laid-back vibe and lots of redevelopment potential – great for long-term investors.

Surfside & Bal Harbour

Surfside is the beach town known for its tight-knit community, while Bal Harbour is known for its beachfront luxury anchored by the world-renowned Bal Harbour Shops.

Sunny Isles Beach

This is THE neighborhood for branded luxury living with grand oceanfront residences that are just a short drive from all the action, and at a lower price point than Miami Beach.

With new zoning rules in place and a prime waterfront location, Bay Harbor Islands’ pre-construction projects rival even those from South Beach, offering extra-large floor plans, the quiet luxury of boutique living, and private marinas with ocean access, often at better price points than Miami Beach.
