Miami road system is based along the numerical "Miami Grid" where Flagler Street forms the east-west baseline and Miami Avenue forms the north-south meridian. The corner of Flagler Street and Miami Avenue is in the middle of Downtown in front of the Downtown Macy (formerly the Burdine headquarters). The Miami grid is primarily numerical so that, for example, all street addresses north of Flagler Street and west of Miami Avenue have "NW" in their address. Because its point of origin is in Downtown which is close to the coast, therefore, the "NW" and "SW" quadrants are much larger than the "SE" and "NE" quadrants as its mentioned in Miami streets map. Many streets, especially major ones, are also named (e.g., Tamiami Trail/SW 8th St), although, with a few notable exceptions (e.g., Coral Way), the number is in more common usage among locals.
All streets and avenues in Miami-Dade County follow the Miami Grid, with a few exceptions, most notably Coral Gables, Hialeah, and Miami Beach. Some neighborhoods, such as The Roads, is thusly named because its streets run off the Miami Grid in a 45-degree angle, and therefore all named roads. Ocean Drive is the most famous avenue in Miami Beach as you can see in Miami streets map. Here you will find everything you have ever seen about Miami in film and on TV: rows of palm trees, bright blue sky, gym-toned bodies, Latin music, people out doing sport, cocktail bars, endless sandy beaches and turquoise sea. Ocean Drive is a lively street that is always bustling with people at all hours of the day. After becoming somewhat run down in the 1970s, Ocean Drive picked itself back up again after several entrepreneurs set up businesses there and breathed new life into an area previously known for crime and cheap housing. It worked. Hotels, bars, shops and restaurants opened their doors, and more and more neon lights began to appear where there had been only empty shop units.
It is got a lot of names, but whether you call it Tamiami Trail, SW 8th Street, or simply “Calle Ocho,” this stretch of road has been the hub of Miami Cuban community for decades. It is brimming with Cuban food, ventanitas, and infectious music and includes well-known spots like Domino Park (formally known as Maximo Gomez Park) and the Tower Theater (see Miami streets map). One of Miami oldest destinations, Miracle Mile was chosen to be the hub of Coral Gables by the city founder, George Merrick. In 1922 he picked this half-mile stretch of Coral Way to be the center for Coral Gables City Hall and the main place to catch the trolley line. Much of Biscayne Boulevard is just traffic lights and run-of-the-mill buildings, but when you hit the historic MiMo District, aka Upper Eastside, Miami history shines through. Most of the motels lining this street date back to the 1950s and 1960s, and retain much of the original architecture.
