North Miami Beach, commonly referred to as NMB, is located in the state of Florida and is a city in Miami-Dade County. It was named originally as Fulford-by-the-sea after Captain William H. Fulford, who was a member of the United States Coast Guard in 1926, however, it was then renamed to North Miami Beach in 1931. The 1926 hurricane devastated the state and ended essentially the South Florida real estate boom, and in an effort to compensate and alleviate the loss and the damage that was encountered by the city, the residents came together to be referred as the Town of Fulford and the city was thereafter incorporated as the City of Fulford in 1927. North Miami Beach is known as the “Crossroads of South Florida.” It’s adjacent to the Golden Glades Interchange, which is where the Palmetto Expressway, Florida’s Turnpike, and Interstate 95 meet. It also lies midway between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Because of this, commuters and shoppers can reach virtually all of South Florida from North Miami Beach in under 30 minutes. Aside from the economic advantage of the area, the city is also surrounded by bays, beaches, and parks. The local scene is alive with arts and culture including the provocative Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), nightlife spots like the popular Little Havana, high-end lounges, movies at the iPic theater, live performances, and a wide array of dining opportunities.
