For a town of just 10,000, Miami Shores really does a lot! Few places in generally transient South Florida capture the feel of a small town with deep roots quite like Miami Shores. Yet, even new comers (and many of us are) are surprised at how quickly they will be welcomed and even asked to get involved in events and groups.

For more information, view the Chamber’s community calendar.
