The City of Pleasant Living
In 2001 the City of South Miami was awarded the All-America City Award, which is given by the National Civic League annually to ten cities in the United States. This award is the oldest community recognition program in the nation and recognizes communities whose citizens’ work together to identify and tackle community-wide challenges and achieve uncommon results. Through all these years, the City of South Miami preserved its hometown feel and the residents are proud to call it - The City of Pleasant Living.
South Miami was ranked Among the Top 10 Cities in Florida for Young Families by NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website. This notable recognition by a well-respected national interest is emblematic of the changes that the City of South Miami has undergone in the last few years and has continued in the passing fiscal year.
