Homestead

Homestead, formerly 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.


Homestead name 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 the warehouse of railway materials, it was dubbed Homestead Country, then, out of love for practicality, it was reduced.

At speed in Homestead

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

To increase the safety of pilots on turns in 1996 and 2003, the configuration of the oval is changed, its corners are smoothed. In 2003 also install lighting for night runs. Today, motor racing enthusiasts can cheer on racers during competitions such as NASCAR, Championship Cup series and Verizon IndiCar, as well as Weather Tech Sports Car championship. New technologies have not bypassed the racetrack side, since 2011, the popular race of RC -controlled RC Raceway cars have been held here.

Outdoors

Adrenaline racing after the rally can be easily brought to balance in nature.

The 70-hectare Biscayne National Park, with which Homestead Municipality borders on the east, is ninety percent water-covered. Here you can go fishing and lobster fishing, kayaking and sailing yachts, windsurfing and diving. On the chain of islands of the bay there are stops for recreation and picnics, boat stations and camping sites. The most visited island is Boca Chita and its open-air lighthouse.

Everglades is the largest fount of tropical flora and fauna in the United States, which is visited by over a million tourists annually. Its landscapes are diverse: jungle with paths laid on the ground and in the air, pine groves, mangroves and coastal wet prairies.

An attempt to settle this territory began in the early 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 mangroves were rooted out by the winds, and dwellings were regularly flooded. Since the 50s, several parks have been located in this area, which were combined in 1976. Today it is a paradise for hiking and camping, boating and airboating, as well as visiting a large-scale alligator farm.
