The city also has a darker underbelly, ''especially'' in the 1980's, where works like ''Film/{{Scarface}}'' and the hit 80's TV show ''Series/{{Miami Vice}}'' were based off the major cocaine problem the city was dealing with at the time. Today, the city is a common location for ''Series/TheFirst48'' and the second most dangerous metropolitan area in the USA. OnlyInFlorida, indeed. As far as sports are concerned, Miami's on a shorter end of the stick - the [[{{UsefulNotes/MLBTeams}} Marlins]] only made the playoffs twice in their existence (won the World Series both times, however); and the Miami Dolphins last won a Super Bowl in ''1973'' (though they remain the only undefeated team in the NFL, as well as one of the few repeat champions having won in 1972 beforehand). The [[{{UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation}} Miami Heat]] are their go-to powerhouse, having won three championships in their history, including two in a row in 2012 and 2013. [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague It feels like we're forgetting someone...]]ah, right. [[UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball The University of Miami Hurricanes]] [[BaitAndSwitch were also one of college football's premier dynasties in the 1980s.]] [[note]]Yes, there ''is'' an NHL team in Miami, the Florida Panthers. They actually made the Stanley Cup Finals in just their third year of existence, but haven't won a playoff series since and have only made the playoffs four times total, in a league where over 50% of the league makes the playoffs.[[/note]]

Before we go on, we should mention that although there is in fact a city in Florida law called the City of Miami, whenever people talk about "Miami," they're really talking about Miami-Dade County. This is because the City of Miami, for various historical and legal reasons, has had limited room to expand its borders, and is therefore very small geographically--35.68 square miles of land (for comparison, UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC, which has about 200,000 more people, has about 20 more square miles of land). On the other hand, none of this has stopped actual construction of city-like development outside the city's official borders, and as such Miami-Dade County consists of two things: areas that are basically city, and swamp.

Nobody lives in the swamp, or goes there, or cares about it (except for alligators, environmentalists, criminals, and madmen); whenever you talk about Miami-Dade, you're talking about the urban area where everyone lives.

You may wonder why we're quoting a Music/WillSmith song. One, it's a song that one associates with the city (''Series/CSIMiami'' itself used it once). Two, it sums the bilingualism of the city pretty nicely. Miami is the most Latin city in the U.S.- with 66% plus of the residents speaking Spanish as their first language. 34% of the city's population are of Cuban descent; there are more Cubans living in Miami-Dade County than in any city except Havana.[[note]]The City of Miami is artificially small, and not a fair comparison, as the Miami urban area extends well beyond city limits.[[/note]] Miami is another US media centre, especially for Spanish-language media. It's also known for music.

With the pretty warm climate (this comes at a price as the city is also in Hurricane Alley, and thus sees a hurricane every few years in average), {{Fanservice}} is inevitable. On the other hand, Miami is a popular destination for "snowbirds", old men and women (frequently Jewish) from colder climes who buy condominiums and live there for the winter months. Depending on which beach you frequent, you may be exposed to FanDisservice instead.
