Miami, Florida

Miami was a tiny village until 1896. In 1894 and 1895, unusually cold weather in Florida had destroyed the citrus crop in most of the state. The only citrus trees that survived were those on the plantation of Julia Tuttle in Miami. Tuttle immediately convinced railroad magnate Henry Flagler to extend tracks to the city. Upon visiting the region, Flagler agreed. Miami was incorporated in 1896. By 1930, the city had over 100,000 residents.

Today, Miami is one of America’s top tourist destinations. It is world famous for its beautiful beaches, sunny weather, and exciting nightlife (especially in the South Beach section). Miami is also one of the world’s largest immigration centers and has a large Spanish-speaking population.
