|Miami Shores is a fabulous city to raise a family and enjoy life. Located in northeast Miami-Dade County, about 20 minutes from downtown Miami, this little village of just more than 10,000 residents combines a high quality of life in a small town atmosphere with all the available amenities the Greater Miami metro area has to offer.
Miami Shores is home to Barry University, a fully accredited, four-year coeducational university offering more than 100 programs of undergraduate and graduate study. Miami Shores is a community with interesting shops, an outstanding recreational program, fine schools, and beautiful churches. Many of the residents participate in local clubs and organizations that work to insure the continued quality of the community. Local government is responsive to the concerns of both local residents and businesses. The community boasts several fabulous amenities for such a small town, including the Miami Shores Country Club, the Aquatic Center with two pools, and the Shore's Performing Arts Theater, a restored 1940s movie house that's now home to one of Miami's up-and-coming theater companies.
Miami Shore's location, just west of Biscayne Bay and north of Miami, provides easy access to all of southern Florida's natural beauty, culture, and recreation opportunities.
