Miami is also the home of the Orange Bowl, one of the BCS rotation members.

One of Miami's distinctive features is its extensive Cuban culture. Situated at one of the most southernmost points in the country, Miami has a large Cuban-American population in addition to other Latin American nationalities. Miami's cuisine reflects this heritage, as the local food has been dubbed "Floribbean" in honor of its mixed American and Caribbean flavors. This mixed heritage is also reflected in Miami music and accents. Miami music carries elements of Cuban, Haitian, Dominican, Colombian, Brazilian, West Indian, and Caribbean culture. The city is widely recognized as a hub for freestyle dance music and electronic music.
As a result of its booming variety of industries, Miami has a robust economy. Its Gross Municipal Product is $257 billion, 20th worldwide. Since 2001, it has seen construction of more than 50 skyscrapers, in part because of a real estate boom in the mid-2000s. The tourism industry brings 38 million annual visitors to the city who provide $17.1 billion of revenue.
