Miami Beach is one of my favorite cities; I have spent many vacations there since my childhood and have developed memorable moments and sites. This paper “Miami Beach” is based on author’s last visit to the city. The author offers a narrative essay about the place.Even though I had made many previous visits to the city, they had been self centered and purely recreational. We would spend time together as a family, visit a few places and friends in the city before travelling back home. I however made my last visit with a peer and the visit’s core objective was to explore the city for knowledge development. We therefore hired a guide to lead us and respond to our possible questions, an initiative from which we learnt of the city’s history that developed from a farm to a real estate city. Planners in the nineteenth century designated the region for coconut plantation but housing developers changed the idea, decades later, to the current city’s scope. The generally hot weather, a characteristic of the city’s climate, was enjoyable, a climate that promotes recreational activities at the beach. Even though the city experiences occasional durations of cold weather, it is generally hot and is either dry or humid, depending on its seasons. Further, we interacted with local residents but embraced a challenge in communication because they predominantly communicate in Spanish.My last trip to Miami Beach was therefore more informative as I learnt about the city, its geography, its history, and I directly interacted with its people.
