Con: New city government still organizing

The site of a famed golf course that dates back to the 1950s, Doral has lately morphed into a small-business hot spot, especially for entrepreneurs active in the Latin American market.

Incorporated only five years ago, Doral is a mere mile from Miami International Airport. Many local businesses are small importers, such as firms that fly in flowers from Ecuador. Nearly 63% Hispanic, the city is home to broadband provider Brightstar, one of the largest Hispanic-owned companies in the U.S. Located on the western fringe of Miami, Doral and its sister, Hialeah Gardens, offer amenities such as golf, spas, and big-name shows. But Doral's city government is so new that it still lacks an economic development department. -Peter Galuszka
