Kendall is a census-designated place and an unincorporated suburban Miami community in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. As of the 2000 census, the area had a total population of 75,226.

While the defined boundaries of the community have been labeled Kendall by the US Census Bureau, locals often included western communities, such as The Hammocks, Country Walk, The Crossings, Kendale Lakes, Kendall West, and Three Lakes, as part of Kendall.

The Kendall area is also home to one of the largest Colombian American populations in the State of Florida. Over 11,000 Colombians live in the area, mostly concentrated in the western fringes (West of the Florida Turnpike), in the census-designated places of The Hammocks, Country Walk, The Crossings, Kendale Lakes, Kendall West and Three Lakes, where they make up over 60 percent of the population in certain neighborhoods (West Kendall, Royal Palms on 134th Ave. and The Hammocks).

Kendall is served by the Miami Metrorail at two stations: Dadeland North Station and Dadeland South Station. Both stations directly serve Dadeland (a Kendall neighborhood), and connect Dadeland to Downtown Miami. Numerous Miami Metrobus lines terminate at the Dadeland South Station, as this is the start of the South Miami-Dade Busway which connects the multiple southern Miami Metrobus lines to the Metrorail.
