Next to the Gulf Stream's warm ocean currents, on a broad plain between the Florida Everglades and Biscayne Bay (home to hundreds of natural and artificially created barrier islands), lies the city of Miami.

Famous for its beaches, shopping, cuisine and nightlife, Miami is also a major centre of international trade, commerce, media, culture, entertainment and the arts.

Miami International Airport (IATA: MIA, ICAO: KMIA, FAA LID: MIA), formerly named Wilcox Field, and often simply referred to as MIA, sits northwest of central Miami, in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States.
