Florida City

It might be interesting to some that Florida City was once known by the name Detroit, prior to getting it’s present name in 1914, when it was incorporated.  It was named Detroit by northerners from the other, original Detroit, after they moved south in the early 1900’s.  When the city incorporated in 1914 it received the name it holds to this day, Florida City.

Florida City is directly south of Homestead.  It is the last city millions of tourists see before they reach the Florida Keys.  Florida City has the distinction of being nestled squarely between two national parks.  Biscayne National Park is on its eastern boundary and Everglades National Park on the west.

Florida City has grown dramatically with the housing boom in South Florida.  It is home to the Florida City Outlet shopping center featuring many nationwide retail chains as well as the newly added Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Restaurant, the only one in Miami-Dade county.  There are many new communities of single fammily homes as well as townhomes and condominiums.

US1, with it’s many shops is somewhat in the center of Florida City.  Nothing is more than a stone’s throw here.  Head south to the Florida Keys and enjoy a day trip or jump on the Florida Turnpike and head north to bustling cities just minutes away.
