Cutler Bay, formerly known as Cutler Ridge, is an incorporated town in Miami-Dade County that stretches form SW 184th Street (Eureka Dr) east of US-1 to the coast, and north of Black Point Marina. As of the 2010 census, Cutler Bay had a total population of 40,286. Its incorporation came in 2005 when residents voted to do so and after adopting a municipal charter the city was renamed Cutler Bay. It is a medium sized coastal town with eight constituent neighborhoods making it the 73rd largest community in Florida.
In August 1992, Culter Bay and the surrounding areas were devastated by Hurricane Andrew. Most of the homes and businesses in the area were completely destroyed because of their wood frame construction. Since Hurricane Andrew new laws were put in place to ensure that history would not repeat itself. Homes and business are now built with concrete block construction and while Cutler Bay was one of the worst affected it has since rebuilt itself little by little.
Because of its proximity to the water both residents and visitors alike are able to enjoy all that Florida beaches, inlets, and bays have to offer.
In addition to the waterfront activities, Cutler Bay is close to some of South Florida’s finest attractions such as Biscayne National Park, Coral Castle, Everglades National Park, Deering Estate, The Miami Metrozoo, The Miami Seaquarium, Monkey Jungle and Jungle Island…
