The second is Key Biscayne, one of the best neighborhoods to live in Miami. Especially if you are starting a family. There are many great local restaurants and opportunities for outdoor activities like visiting the lighthouse, biking, and/or playing with your kids at the local park. In this case, the statistics indicate 73.21% below the state rate.
