Miami, Florida?

Dh was recently nominated for a position down in Miami. Anyone ever been stationed down there? Pros and Cons? I do have family there but never been in the area long term. TIA.

    My husband grew up there, so I'm fairly familiar with the area, but have never been stationed there.  Is this Homestead?

    My husband was stationed at a federal building in Miami back in 2004-2007.  He loved it...he lived in Coral Cables.  I visited him there and reallllllyyyyyyyy loved it, I loved Florida so much we made sure to get orders back here lol We live in Saint Augustine, FL now.  Anyway Miami is nice but it is a party town and I personally wouldn't want to raise a family there but if you're ok with the party town part,  then I would say go for it!

  • My dad worked in Miami when I was a kid, but we lived closer to Ft. Lauderdale. It was a longer commute for him, but we didn't want to live in Miami. Party town, lots of tourists, lots of crime. I would suggest looking for a place to live outside of the city.
