Miami boasts glamour, elegance and a cosmopolitan attitude, and as it is nestled on the Atlantic coast of Florida’s most southern tip. It boasts unlimited ways to charm its visitors, as the city’s natural beauty and its surroundings are breathtaking while its great climate offers chances in outdoor activities pretty much all year round.
Whilst staying close to the city will allow you to enjoy some of the best beaches on the planet, we also recommend exploring a little further from the city proper and visit the wonders of the Everglades or the Florida Keys. Even though the weather nearly forces you to stroll around in the sun, Miami’s architectural past and its vibrant art scene will tempt you to spend some time indoors, and the warmth of the vastly international population – North American core with a twist of Caribbean culture, a healthy dose of Latin America, a dash of Africa, a touch of Asia and a hint of Europe – provides a fascinating blend, which gives Miami a vibrant and exhilarating cultural life that needs to be experienced.
Wherever you go, from the Art Deco condos of Miami Beach to the beautiful-people populated clubs of South Beach, Miami transports it’s visitors to another world, a world of glamor, decadence and pure pleasure.
South Beach is Miami’s place to be, and also widely known as the hottest nightspot in the world. With quite a few hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs, this scene lies at the tip of Miami Beach, fringed with a wide belt of white sand and enriched by the beautiful sound of the ocean that creates a wonderful atmosphere.
Little Havana is the Cuban heart of Miami, and by walking the Calle Ocho, you can really feel the Latin spirit. While the last Friday of each month turns this district into a street party called ‘Viernes Cultural’, with music, dancers, food and theatre, do also experience the El Credito Cigar Factory (on 11th Street), where cigars are rolled in the very same way as on the island of Cuba itself.
Add to the mix stunning beaches, a thriving art scene, top-notch shopping and balmy tropical weather, it’s easy to see why Miami should be on your must-do travel list whether you’re jetting in for a two-week break or are just on shore for a couple of days as part of a cruise and stay package.
