Downtown to Suburbs: Finding Your Miami Vibe

One of the best things about living in a metro area like Miami is that you have such a wide variety of diverse neighborhoods to choose from. If you want to be in the middle of the action, plenty might be perfect for you from Edgewater to Brickell. There are also many options for suburban neighborhoods that offer their own unique slice of Americana. Let’s look at just a few of the options that embody the essence of downtown living and suburban bliss, helping you find your ideal Miami residence.

The City is Alive From the Design District to Brickell

Brickell is Miami’s financial district. If you’re a professional with the goal of living closest to major business centers, this is a great area for you. You’ll find plenty of skyline living options here. High-rise, luxury condos make up most of the residences in this area. You’ll have phenomenal views of Biscayne Bay and the cityscape. Upscale restaurants, trendy clubs, and rooftop bars are all close-by. 

You won’t need a car to get around Brickell, but if you need to get out of the neighborhood you’ll need to plan around peak hours to avoid traffic. 

The Beach can be described as, well, an oceanfront paradise. With the Atlantic Ocean as your backyard, you are minutes away from world class fishing. This is where you’ll find some of the most iconic Art Deco architecture as well as a vibrant and lively atmosphere. 

South Beach hosts cultural events, festivals, and art shows – truly a hub of arts and entertainment. These events will always draw a crowd and Miami Beach is one of the areas where tourists plan to visit. Peak seasons will see the most activity, but expect there to always be something exciting going on. 

Suburban Living for a Slower Pace

The Miami Metro area has many different unique neighborhoods. The Kern Team has more than 26 years of experience in South Florida real estate and are well-versed in the entire area. We’ve chosen just a couple of suburban areas to highlight, but we’re always here to answer questions or schedule viewings in any area for you.

Coral Gables is a charming and sophisticated city known for its Mediterranean Revival architecture. Downtown Gables is a great walkable enclave full of restaurants, shopping, and a calmer nightlife than the Beach. With more affordable office space than Downtown & Brickell, the Gables is thriving as a live-work-play city within a city. The tree-lined streets are dominated by single-family homes with easy access to Downtown Gables. 

Just down US-1 from the Gables, Pinecrest is a great option if you’re looking for ample space, plenty of privacy, and sprawling properties. Over-sized lots for single-family homes are the most common residences. The schools – both public and private are some of the best in the nation, so it’s attractive to families with young children. Located far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city to feel serene, you’re still close enough to participate in downtown life when you want to. 

Whether you find yourself captivated by the city’s rhythm or drawn to the peaceful retreats of the more quiet streets, each neighborhood is unique. Your Miami residence isn’t just a place to live; it’s a reflection of your lifestyle. The Kern Team is here to help you explore the nuances of each community.
