* Almost all Creator/ElmoreLeonard crime novels, largely because Leonard is a Miami-based author. DaveBarry has also set his fiction in Miami for the same reason. In 1996, Barry, Leonard and 11 other Florida writers, some of whom also set most of their works or one or more series in Miami, collaborated on a Miami-set comedy mystery novel entitled ''NakedCameTheManatee''.

* Miami itself has exploited this trope: In 1972, shortly after Walt Disney World opened near Orlando, the Miami Board of Tourism placed vacation ads in eighteen different newspapers in the northern US and Europe which encouraged visitors to visit Miami because it was "just down the road from Disney World". This statement is technically true... if by "the road" you mean Interstate 95, and by "just down" you mean 235 miles down...

* Both ''BadBoys'' movies center on a couple of {{Cowboy Cop}}s who work for the Miami PD These movies also had a bit of of an odd case of CaliforniaDoubling, not with Cali but with quiet, gentrified Delray Beach, Florida, 50 miles to the north for some scenes. Many areas are instantly recognizable to native Miamians, though.

** Gentrified, maybe, but try driving in Delray with all the retirees and you'll feel like you're in a car chase.

* One of the odder examples is ''AceVentura: Pet Detective'', which involved the Miami Dolphins.
** And involved a story based on their real-life archrivals, the Buffalo Bills, losing Super Bowl 25 on a missed field goal.

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' takes place in Miami (like the [[Literature/{{Dexter}} series of novels it is based]]), and is filmed mostly there (but also in California).
** Has something of a dark twist; Dexter likes Miami not for the sun or the glamour (things which he actually personally dislikes) but for the high unsolved-murder rate, which makes it an ideal place to "hone [[SerialKillerKiller his craft]]". (20%, if Dexter is to be believed, which is...impressively atrocious.)

* Averted in ''Film/TomorrowLand''. Casey and her family live in Cape Canaveral. Justified, since that is where NASA is located- and her father works as an engineer for them.
