The relaxed vibes of Miami Beach extend into its coworking spaces, which offer friendly and inclusive places for freelancers, start-ups and entrepreneurs to work communally.
The south Florida island city is best known for its stretches of golden sands and wildly hedonistic nightlife. But delve a little deeper and you’ll discover it also has a vibrant business community made up of a large number of solo workers who don’t necessarily want to work from their kitchen, living room or bedroom. For such people, the city is well equipped with welcoming coworking spaces where you can work productively and meet like-minded folk. Here are 10 of the best.
