Miami Beach History
As with much of Florida, Miami Beach was first settled by the Spaniards.Â Although the Spanish never established a permanent colonial settlement there, they established several settlements involved with trading and fishing.
The community didnâ€™t really see major growth until after 1821, when the Americans took Florida from Spain and established it as a U.S. Territory.Â In 1845, Florida was granted statehood.
Since then, Miami Beach has morphed into a burgeoning cosmopolitan city that touts a diverse population, vibrant local economy and impressive residential neighborhoods and resorts at every turn.
Today, the city is comprised of several distinctive areas, including South Beach as well as Downtown Miami.Â Each of these communities offers its own unique culture and way of life.
