Miami is a major city in the southeastern corner of Florida, in the United States. Miami and the surrounding metropolitan area are situated on northern Biscayne Bay between the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. By population, Miami is the second-largest city in Florida and the largest city of Miami-Dade County. In terms of land area, the city of Miami is one of the smallest major cities in the United States. Miami has a tropical wet-and-dry climate, whereas seasons are roughly determined by precipitation regimes. Tourism is also an important industry: the beaches of Greater Miami draw visitors from across the country and around the world, and the Art Deco nightclub district in South Beach (in Miami Beach) is widely regarded as one of the most glamourous in the world. However, it is important to note that Miami Beach is not a part of the city of Miami.
