Despite the Storm, Miami Still a Top Destination

Hurricane Irma has come and gone and left a path of destruction in its wake. Miami, one of the hardest hit areas along the coast is slowly recovering. The water has receded, most of the dead trees have been removed and the lights are back on (most of them, anyway).

Miami is recovering and, despite Irma, will continue to maintain its reputation as a top-ranking city. It attracts many who wish to work, live and play in one of the most vibrant places in the world. The Magic City has evolved from a tourist destination to a top global city, and here are the numbers to prove it, courtesy of Miami Realtors.com.
