There is no doubt that the changes and evolution that Downtown Miami has been seeing in the past 5 10 years and continues to see, represent the reason why Miami is here to stay.  It's exciting to be part of the change and want to share that excitement with the latest video by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (Miami DDA).  The Miamism Sales Team continues to be called the number 1 promoters of our city.  We ARE and LOVE Miami.
