Hialeah is commonly referred to as a Miami suburb, but it is more than that. With a population surpassing 200,000, this Miami-Dade County enclave is actually one of Florida’s larger cities. A high percentage of Hialeah’s residents are of Cuban descent. In fact, no other city in the United States has a higher percentage of Cuban and Cuban American inhabitants. Spanish is widely spoken around town, and you’ll even find a major Spanish-language television network headquartered here – Telemundo.
A good mix of restaurants, stores and shops can also be found in Hialeah Florida, and while it has changed over time, the legendary Hialeah Park Race Track stills calls the city home. It is part of the Hialeah Park Racing & Casino, where the entertainment comes in various forms, including gaming, concerts, and other special events. For fun of a different kind in Hialeah, you can head to Amelia Earhart Park, where a number of recreational opportunities await.
