South Miami Overview
South Miami Quick Facts
A Traveler's Guide to South MiamiSouth Miami is a city that is located in the southeastern region of the US state of Florida. Florida is the most extreme southeastern state in the continental United States. It is bordered to the north by Alabama and Georgia, to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the south by the Caribbean Sea, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. South Miami is a primary city in the greater Miami metropolitan area in Miami-Dade County. English is the official language of South Miami.
The area of South Miami was first named "Larkins" after the first postmaster of the area. The city was originally a train depot stop, but as neighboring Miami grew so did Larkins. The residents of the city knew that the name Miami was well known, and in hopes of creating a tourism industry, they voted to rename their city South Miami, to connect it with the larger city of Miami nearby. Over the years South Miami has become a very popular tourist destination because of its proximity to south Florida's beautiful beaches. It has also benefited from the fact that the University of Miami's campus borders it.
West Miami has a humid subtropical climate, which means hot summers and mild winters. Summer temperatures can reach into the 90's Fahrenheit from time to time but winter temperatures rarely dip below 40. Rainfall occurs year round, but it occurs most heavily during the summer months of June through August. Thunderstorms can be severe from time to time. The city is vulnerable to occasional hurricanes because of its location in south Florida.
