This beautiful village caters to those who prefer a quiet way of life. It was incorporated in 1932, and is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Miami. Consisting of primarily single-family homes with a few condominiums and town home developments, Miami Shores attracts a lot of families due to quality schools, many churches, a library, and recreational facilities all within the neighborhood. Miami Shores Country Club serves the general public, but offers discounted memberships to residents of Miami Shores.
Two commercial areas along Biscayne Boulevard and NE 2 Avenue offer many shopping and dining options for residents.
