Miami, Florida

"The Land Of Palms And Sunshine"


Miami, famous for its location and equable cli-
mate, is the fastest growing city in the South.
Eager to welcome, it beckons those, who would
leave Winter behind, and play a while in Miami.
Those who once visit it continue to do so, bring
others and ultimately settle there, building their
own homes. You can work, as well as play here.
Important local industries are constantly matur-
ing. Farms of the most productive sort mosaic
the rich acreages hereabouts and this part of Florida
is helping feed the nation. There is something of
vital consequence, aside from vacationing, it is the
substantial foundation of thrift that gives Miami
an unwavering calm, very proud in her own fu-
ture. She is sure to go ever forward.
The climate is born of the true tropic zone,
Miami will continue a place of flowers and birds and
sunshine and balmy warmth when it is winter else-
where. From December to March year in and year
out, Miami's thermometer registers the sort of un-
varying climatic joy that makes the straw hat and
the sport suit an identifying uniform of the city.
Miami has one of the greatest seaports in the
world, commercially, and for pleasure craft. To the


paralleled for scenic investure and nature provi-
sion for harbor facilities. It is snugly, landlocked,
protecting it from deep ocean swells. On the ocean
side of the bay, Miami Beach proves what can be
done with a mere strip of uncultivated sand. Ap-
preciating the value of the beach section, as an
ocean playground and as a supplementary home
suburb, Miami has consistently encouraged develop-
ments here, until now, in the full blossom of its at-
tractive features, it represents a self-supporting unit,
with the finest roads, architecturally adapted homes,
a bustling little business community.
Miami claims priorship over Biscayne Bay, for
directly facing the city, it unfolds its more complete
beauty. And in this immense aquarium fish of many
kinds and colors are visible against the pearl white
sandy bay floor. There are more than seven hun-
dred different varieties of fish to be caught in this
territory and off this coast. There are fishing docks
where professional boatmen await your call. From
Royal Palm Park float the softened cadence of music.
Headlights gleam on the motor cars that glide over
the causeway and faintly, like the echo of a cathe-
dral organ, sounds the distant boom of the surf.
Miami wants shipping. It wants commercial boats
from every port of the Seven Seas. Uncle Sam has
met her at least half way, in a realization of this
ambition. Thus we now have the Government Cut,
reaching 3 7-10 miles, from Ocean and jetties, to
the municipal docks. It is a straightway course, of-
fidially charted and of sufficient depth-18.9 feet,
at mean low tide, and to be still further deepened
to accommodate the largest vessels.
There is a climatic distinction in being "the
most southern city on the mainland of the United
States," and 2,iamicau, of course, lay claim to
this. The sub-tropical zone is the zone of what is
truly perpetual sunshine. Florida is but sixty miles
wide, as a peninsula, due east and west, at this
point. The warmth-bringing Gulf Stream, passes
within 31/ miles of the Miami shore. Excessive heat
is not known, and the soft rains generally occur at
night. Miami is famed for the luxuriant growth of
her royal palms and her fruitful cocoanut palms
are everywhere and in fine condition.
The trip down the East Coast of Florida over
the Dixie Highway by motor is the most beautiful


trip in America. And so on, almost before we know
it, "The Tamiami Trail," will connect Miami with
the West Coast.
More than 70,000 people represent the fixed win-
ter population. No less than 150,000 tourists visit
Miami in a season. Yet, the city is not congested.
It has 55 miles of paved streets, about 60 miles of
oiled macadam, and 600 miles of superb rock-sur-
faced, oil coated boulevards, radiating in every di-
rection. The splendid "Ingraham Highway" leads
you to the Royal Palms State Park, with its deep
.jungles. its scientific display of the fauna and bird
life of Florida, and such a kingdom of palms as
is rarely seen ainw\\'hr. Each season finds some
famous band as an afternoon and night concert fea-
ture of the tropic Royal Palm Park, a great open,
cocoanut palm sheltered park,. swept by breezes from
Biscayne Bay and located in the very heart of the
city. There are many excellent roads running out
from Miami, and leading to scenic farms, citrus fruit
groves, rivers, lakes, Indian camps, island parks
and resorts, beaches, and to other Florida pleasure
places, notably Palm Beach and intermediate points,
each remarkable for some scenic feature.

Sdenced by the fact that the Floriida East LUonst
Railway has its shop and yards in the city. It is
the starting place of the wonderful Oversea Rail-
way route to Key West.
In Miami there are accommodations of avery sort
to fit in with the specific needs, desires and purses
of the visitor. The hotels are commodious in size,
pretentious in appearance and beautifully designed
inside to provide a maximum comfort, luxury, and
pleasurable entertainment.
The church-goer will be highly pleased with the
religious atmosphere of Miami. All denominations are
represented.
Miami Beach has several wonderful golf courses
and nothing quite like them can be found else-
where in Florida. The game of golf is played in
Miami under most picturesque conditions. The ho-
tels have their own tennis courts and the city has
built several fine tennis playgrounds within easy
walking distance. At Alton Beach a remarkably
fine polo ground has been constructed and there
are daily contests.
Miami Beach is located on a narrow, yet at-
tractive peninsula. There are casinos, bathing pa-
vilions, shore resorts and exquisite little bathing
places all along the ocean front, from the jetties
northward, to primeval mangrove studded roads that
mean "a bathing beach of your own." Each pretty
place has its own bathhouses, casino, restaurant,
salt water pools, and amusements for the children
and there is surf and pool bathing every day in
the year. Linking the beach with Miami is a giant
causeway spanning Biscayne Bay and giving speedy
access to the Atlantic Ocean. This impressive ma-
cadam boulevard, flanked by palms and flowers, with
--mptl savee- for ptde-tian w-alks,- wo-way auto-
mobile concourse, and the very latest type of electri-
fied trolley. It is constructed on concrete arches
at its terminals, through which the bay currents
may sweep at will and the boats pass unhampered.
The city has progressive newspapers, and the
visitor can secure his hometown newspaper or peri-
odical almost as rapidly as if he were at home.
Tourists enjoy our Mid-Winter County Fair held
in March, with exhibits and entries from the sur-
rounding countryside. It is just another episode on
the calendar of events.
