Florida has many homes and neighborhoods that date back to the early 1900s and that are still providing a beautiful living space for people today. Florida also has something for everyone, whether tourists or locals, as there are museums, outdoor activities and plenty of other attractions to enjoy. One area in Florida that was incorporated in 1913 is the city of Homestead.

Homestead is located in South Dade County and has Everglades National Park to the west and Biscayne National Park to the east. The area has both many agricultural spaces and also residential neighborhoods since it is considered a suburb of Miami. Homestead is the second oldest of all of the cities in Miami-Dade County and can be found just north of Key Largo and the entrance to the Florida Keys.

While it gets its name from the construction of the Florida East Coast Railway extension, which passed through an area well-known for homesteading, today many people drive to and from the area to the metropolitan Miami area rather than taking a train or other type of public transportation. Unfortunately, with so many drivers on the roads going to and through Homestead, there is a risk of auto accidents and motor vehicle collisions from occurring.
