As a Miami suburb located in Miami-Dade county, Sweetwater was founded in the 1920s after the Miami-Pittsburgh Land Company bought a large plot of land in order to build several Sweetwater Groves. The original plans were interrupted by a hurricane in 1926, and building continued in 1938 when the plot was repurchased and sold in lots. The town was successfully incorporated in 1941.

Sweetwater is located west of Miami on the eastern Florida coast with quick and easy access to Miami Beach, Miami International Airport, the Port of Miami, and the countless tourist attractions in Miami, Florida.
