Miami is the home of rap. The area code is a favorite for rappers and hip-hop artists who use it to reference the Miami-Dade County area in their songs. It also connotes parts of Monroe County – the Florida Keys – and other South Florida destinations, such as Coral Gables and Key West. Those are just a few of the places rappers use the word “305” to describe.
Every year, residents of Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys celebrate 305 to my city by throwing parties and events throughout the region. This year, a huge celebration took place at Factory Town in Hialeah on Saturday! This event was a great way for people to show their love for the city and to honor its rich culture.
