Miami and its suburbs are located on the wide plain from Lake Okejoby south to the Gulf of Florida, from the Ever Grady Mountains to the west, and Biscayne Bay to the east. On average, the altitude of the area is about 6 feet above sea level in most communities, especially near the coast.
Miami Beach is a barrier island between Biscayne Bay (West) and the Atlantic (East) that lies east of Miami. The area was originally inhabited by the Tequesta and later by the Seminole Indians. Until 1912, the area was a mangrove swamp, and growers tried to build coconut plantations without success but were luckier with avocado orchards. John S. Collins, Carl Fisher, John and James Lummus were among the pioneers of real estate development and, through their efforts, a bridge was built on both sides of the Gulf (subsequently a 1920 highway). The former peninsula was turned into an island when the Haulover Inlet pass was built above Bal Harbor. Dredging added land to the island. The city was incorporated into the ocean beach in 1915 and renamed Miami Beach the following year. Miami Beach is now a year-round luxury resort and convention center, having no industries and no transportation facilities other than its road links to Miami.
