Information About Senior Living Option in Hialeah

Located in Miami-Dade County in the southeast corner of the state, Hialeah is home to approximately 218,000 residents, including many seniors. Hialeah senior living attracts retirees due to its sunny weather and desirable South Florida location. Incorporated in 1925, Hialeah was the original home to the Miami Movie Studios and is where aviator Amelia Earhart left the U.S. on her ill-fated world tour in 1937. Today, Hialeah's population is predominately Hispanic with a large Cuban immigrant community.

There's always something to do here, and senior living in Hialeah often includes visits to the Hialeah Park Race Track, an internationally known horse-racing course listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Shoppers can escape the midday heat at the Westland Mall, home to over 100 shops and restaurants, and experience authentic Cuban food and music at the annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration each Autumn.
