Doral stands out as the fastest growing city in Florida.


Coveted in both the residential and commercial sectors, this municipality has been among the most active during this decade.


A study by the U.S. Census Bureau, verified by the Metropolitan Center of Florida International University, determined that Doral stands out as the fastest growing city in Florida and number eleven in the entire country. The analysis was based on the speed with which businesses and residential areas have been created.


The arrival of people from other countries has visibly impacted Doral, between 2010 and 2016, with a 26.1% increase in its population, which represents about 12,000 people.


It is estimated that the factors of the growth are linked to an increase in job opportunities, the low levels of crime, geographic location, quality of schools, and more affordable housing offers.


In reports from the City of Doral, this location was added in 2003 to the list of 34 municipalities in Miami-Dade County. At that time, it had 22,709 inhabitants. Currently, the number has increased by more than half, to some 58,000 residents.


In the U.S. Census Bureau's report, Miami ranked eighth in terms of growth rate, with a 13.1% increase in its population, as reported by Miami Today.


The study also mentions details of the population increase in Miami-Dade County. During the period analyzed, the county's population increased by 8.2%, which is due, first of all, to the arrival of people from other places and, secondly, to the balance of born over dead.


West Miami was the second fastest-growing county in Miami-Dade, with 24.6% in this decade. Last year alone, 7,459 new residents were registered in that municipality.

Also, significant population increases have been detected in North Bay Village, Coconut Grove, Brickell, downtown Miami, Homestead, and Cutler Bay.

Moving and Pregnancy


Yes, you can! But here are some recommendations

Usually, moving implies work.

You have to organize what stays, what goes, what is needed, and when everything will be taken to the new home.

If, on top of that, you plan to move while pregnant, there are some things you need to take into consideration to carry out this process in the best way.

The house was too small for you and you need to move to a more spacious place to give the upcoming baby a more comfortable space. Here are some tips:

1.    Work hard on your well-being: it is important that despite all that moving implies, you remain calm and don’t let stress take hold of you.

2.    The perfect time to move: between the 16th and 20th week of pregnancy. It won't be the first three months of pregnancy that are much riskier for the baby, but it won't be the last, and it will give you time to buy the baby's room furniture, clothes, and organize the space in the best way.

3.  Always ask for help: if you are working and pregnant, and on top of that you are moving, you don't have to be a superwoman and be able to do everything, it is very important that you ask for all the help you can get to handle all the tasks you have to carry out.

4.    Plan the arrival of the baby with time and a lot of help: it is very important to plan and to be prepared. Being one step ahead of any event will help you be efficient in making decisions.

5.  Don't let the move take up 100% of your time: look for people who can help you organize and pack; you don't have to do everything yourself.

6.  Take care of yourself and you will take care of your baby: find a space to talk to someone, tell them how you feel, get to know you, share and prepare for the arrival of a new stage in your life. Switching homes will add stress, nerves and anxiety, so you must work on yourself and your emotions to be ready for everything.

A guide to emigrating with your school-age children and not dying in the attempt


Moving to another country is not an easy decision, especially if you have children. You will need to think about the aspects that can affect them in their routine, mainly because there will be an adjustment process for the whole family.


Although children can adjust to changes easier than adults, you should still anticipate and prepare to avoid complications.


Depending on your child's age, you need to know how the education system works. In the United States, according to its territorial political organization, each state has its own Department of Education, and schools depend on school districts. The schools in Doral depend on Miami-Dade County, being the 4th largest district in the country.


If you decide to enroll your children in public schools, they will be assigned to the school in the area where you live. And here comes another variable to consider: the place of residence. A fact to take into account is that the Florida Department of Education evaluates schools according to student performance, and the classification of schools uses letters, with A being the highest and F the lowest.


If you don't speak English, don't worry if your children haven't had contact with the language. There are ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) education programs. These programs have been designed to train the student in the use and knowledge of the language.
