Miami Lakes consists of over 29,000 residents. On top of that there are an additional 12,000 people who work in the 1,700+ businesses located throughout the community. If you’ve been to Miami Lakes, you might have noticed the herds of cows surrounding the business areas. Where did they come from?
When the Graham Family first arrived to Miami Lakes they originally used it as a pasture in which they graze their cows for their dairy farm. Now, the 3,000 acres is used a little differently. Business now prosper, but the memory of the dairy farm is still present with the luring cows nearby. Personally, I love cows, so it is truly a treat for me to see them on my way into the office everyday. The town is more than just cows, although they are a lot of people’s favorite part.
Miami Lakes is a great place to live. It is conveniently located North of Downtown Miami and only 10 miles from Miami International Airport.

Miami Lakes is known as one of the most beautiful residential areas in South Florida for its tree lined streets, large estate lots, and extremely low crime rate. It contains lots of neighborhood parks, schools, churches and shopping areas which make it an extremely prosperous city to live in. It is a slice of paradise.
