Homestead

Homestead — one of the districts of Miami, is located in the south of the peninsula. Atypical for Florida cities, the lack of a beach is more than compensated for by the most interesting sights.

The name Homestead in translation into Russian means "property", this choice is due to the close connection of the history of the first settlement with the construction of the railway. At a certain point, when this place was only the end point of the network and a warehouse of railway materials, it was dubbed Homestead Country, then out of love for practicality, it was reduced.

An attempt to settle this territory began at the beginning of the twentieth century, when the land of the peninsula was worth its weight in gold. It soon became clear that urbanization was impossible in these parts: palm trees planted in place of mangrove trees with roots were pulled out by the winds, and houses were regularly flooded.

Since the 50s, there are several parks in this area, which were united in 1976. Today it is a paradise for hiking and camping, boating and airboating, and visiting a large-scale alligator farm.

Homestead landmarks

One of the main attractions — a high-speed auto track for 46,000 spectators — has existed since 1995. It was built by promoter Ralph Sanchez after the devastating Hurricane Andrew.

In 2003, they also install lighting for night runs. Today, motorsport enthusiasts can cheer on racers during events such as NASCAR, Championship Cup and Verizon IndiCar series, and Weather Tech Sports Car Championship.

New technologies have not spared the race track; since 2011, the popular RC Raceway has been held here.

You can combine love for sports and extreme sports not only on the rally track, but also on the rodeo, the championships of which are regularly held here and offer festive programs with live music, parades and dances. The adrenaline rush after the rally can be easily balanced in nature.

The 70-hectare Biscayne National Forest, which borders Homestead to the east, is ninety percent covered in water. Here you can go fishing and catching lobsters, kayaking and sailing yachts, windsurfing and diving. The chain of islets in the bay contains rest and picnic stops, boat stations and camping grounds. The most visited island is Boca Chita and its lighthouse open to the public.

Everglades is the largest treasure trove of tropical flora and fauna in the United States, with over a million tourists annually. Its landscapes are varied: jungle with paths paved by land and air, pine groves, mangroves and coastal wet prairies.
