MIAMI, USA

#29

Miami has thrived mainly on tourism in the past, However, the 1960s Cuban immigrants, plus scores of immigrants from the Caribbean, South America and Europe have changed the cultural, political and business climate of the city.
Due to its diversity Miami has emerged as a major center of international trade and finance. Many multinational companies have based their Latin American headquarters in the city. A gleaming row of skyscrapers lines Brickell Avenue, the heart of the city's financial district and home to many foreign banks and financial service firms. The Port of Miami is one of the largest cruise ship ports in the world as well as a major cargo container port in the US. While tourism plays an important role in the economy it is international commerce that truly makes Miami into what it is. A diverse city with a thriving night life and a skyline to match. While the skyline is not very dense it is spread out linear and contains loads of hotels and tall beach side condos. The lighting, specifically at night with the lit up causeway bridges makes this a pleaser to look at. Out of the 25 tallest buildings in the city on 3 were build before 2003.
