If you're reading this blog, that means that you officially have the Key2MIA! I am so excited to share this journey with you.
My name is Keymia and I am the creative mind behind Key2MIA. I started this business for two very important reasons: to share the beauty and culture that is Miami and to allow tourists to really engage with local businesses.
I am originally from North Carolina and when I first moved to Miami, it was a very difficult adjustment. I had no friends and no family here. After a few weeks of moping and sitting in the house, I finally decided to venture out and explore. I had been to South Beach several times and loved it, but didn't know there was so much more to discover in this massive city. The shopping, the nightlife, the food (boy the food), the art, and most importantly, the culture. I literally felt like I had moved to another country. There were so many different walks of life here just waiting to be discovered. So, I discovered them.
After almost a decade of being in the 305, I am often the point of contact for friends and family visiting the city. I am always asked to give recommendations on some of the best spots in the city and often, became the personal Uber driver for many while making these recommendations. At the end of 2018, I was hit pretty hard with a lot of personal obstacles. These hardships led me to a phone call with my mom one Sunday evening creating the idea that you're now reading about; a business that shares my name and allows others to share my love for Miami.
Again, I thank you for taking this journey with me and for choosing Key2MIA to live like a local. Miami is a buzzing, vibrant and beautiful city and we cannot wait to explore it with you.
Bienvenido a Miami my friends!
