Live, Work, Play: It’s Right Here in Miramar!
Named after the Cuban city outside of Havana, Florida’s version of Miramar has been home to generations of families raised here since its founding in 1955. “Miramar is proud of its multicultural and multiethnic diversity,” says City Manager Vernon Hargray. But it is also a great destination for visitors. After all, its motto is “Beauty & Progress,” and there are plenty of ways to experience the lovely surrounds and forward-thinking ethos of the area. After all, adds Hargray, “Miramar is a vibrant, active and progressive community with something for everyone to enjoy.”
