Moving to Miami

Thanks to sub-tropical climates, pristine beaches and a relaxed ambience – Miami is one of the world’s greatest and most iconic destinations. It’s also the cultural, economic and financial centre of South Florida in the United States. Miami has a particularly young population and many people move there to find work, study at University or to simply enjoy the stunning weather!

Expats explain what it’s like to live in Miami, and why its such a popular moving destination from the UK.


Culture & Lifestyle

Even if you’re a seasoned traveller to the US, Miami offers a unique, cultural experience – largely thanks to the high proportion of Latino residents. The city’s nowhere near as fast paced as New York, or as laid back as LA, but it has its own unique, chaotic and fascinating charm. Thanks to the warmth and friendliness of the locals, you can quickly feel part of the cultural blend in Miami no matter where you come from or what language you speak.

High Living Costs, But Low Taxes

The overall cost of living in Miami is particularly high due to high housing costs. With that said, the low taxes in Florida provide a comfortable balance. For instance, there is no state income tax in Florida, which could save you thousands of dollars – although – you would still need to pay federal income taxes.

The Weather Rules in Miami

Moving over to Miami means submitting to weather systems that will shape how you live, summer and winter. It’s hot, humid and there’s regular flooding to contend with. Then there’s the hurricane season with Miami being a prime candidate for storms coming up from the Caribbean. You treat the weather with respect in this part of the world, and get good air conditioning.

Be Prepared for Delays

If you think the traffic in London, Birmingham or Manchester is bad, in Miami it’s off the scale! Once you’ve factored in the traffic delays, and the general laid back attitude to time-keeping, you have a situation where everyone’s late for everything. There’s no point in fighting it, or raging about it; it’s how the city is, you just have to kick back and relax.
