Miami is, without a doubt, one of the most unique cities in the United States–and from its world-famous beaches to its status as an enormous cultural melting pot, these Miami quotes attempt to summarise just a bit about magnetic Miami.

Here’s hoping we take another trip to South Florida’s most famous city soon–but until then, we’ll relive some of our memories with these fun quotes about Miami.

“The thing that’s really cool for me about Miami Beach is you have this dichotomy between sunlight and family and happiness and innocence and then at night, darker, stranger mob conspiracy stuff sort of comes out. It seems like a storytelling engine. You can just keep writing about how those two worlds smash into each other.” – Mitch Glazer
“Is Miami America? Is it a state? Is it the South? … I love Miami for the same reason I love the places I love most around the world… it’s the mix here, this big, messy, dysfunctional hell-broth of people from all over the world that make it so awesome and make it a place I want to keep coming back to. Also the food’s good.” – Anthony Bourdain

And all those things inform what you do – and they should.” – Padma Lakshmi
