Remember when MTV held the 2004 Video Music Awards in Miami, and Usher bragged about the size of his boat right before Diddy arrived on an insanely huge yacht?

Point is, everyone loves to make an entrance in Miami. It's kind of our thing. The Fontainebleau even has a grand stairway to nowhere, which we're pretty sure is a whimsical nod to the 305's unquenchable desire for grand debuts. If what goes up must come down, best to do it in style.

So it makes sense, then, that while there are plenty of home features to focus on in South Florida -- pools, outdoor entertaining spaces, windows for all that sunshine -- so many Miami pads boasts impressive foyers, dramatic staircases, and double or triple-height entryways. We rounded up a few of the best on the market now in the slideshow below.

“These foyers are just magnificent," said Realtor.com's Alison Schwartz. "They definitely make a statement worthy of a grand entrance!”
