You may have seen it on TV shows like Miami Vice and CSI: Miami, and movies like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Now it’s time to swim in the crystal-clear water of its pale sand beaches, watch the killer whales at its Seaquarium, and take in its palm tree-lined streets. Known as “the Magic City”, Miami is Florida
’s largest city and a great place to beach out, get back to nature, see sporting legends in action or party in lavish nightclubs. Pitbull said “there’s nothing like Miami’s heat”. See for yourself: book one of our Miami hotels and raise the temperature.
Things to do
Just off the Miami mainland is the island town of Key Biscayne. Wedged between two national parks – Crandon and Bill Baggs Cape - this strip of land has golden beaches, seafood restaurants, a historic lighthouse and an underwater archeological trail. Whether you’re sun-baking, celebrity-spotting or partying in seaside bars, Miami has your dream beach. Explore the South Beach district for brightly-coloured art deco buildings.
Maybe you came to Miami to party? No problem! This city is known for its nightlife. Dance to a world-famous DJ beneath a colourful domed ceiling, drop into a cocktail bar for a Martini and some lounge music, or catch some live rock, jazz or Latin.
If animal attractions are your thing, the Miami Seaquarium is the place to watch killer whales and dolphins perform leaps, swim with seals or take a walk underwater through a tropical reef. At Zoo Miami you can ride camels and feed giraffes and rhinos. Check out the largest urban park in Florida: Oleta River State Park. It has wooden forest walkways, miles and miles of cycling tracks, a 1,200 foot-beach and a river you can kayak.
Sports fan? Well, instead of asking “how about that local sports team?”, get in the know by watching the Miami Dolphins – Miami’s oldest football team – play at Sun Life Stadium.
Shopping and dining
It has everything else, so it’s no surprise that Miami delivers on the shopping front. There are outdoor marketplaces, independent boutiques, big-name malls and any other shopping environment you may be craving. The food is spectacularly diverse too. Dine on seafood with stunning Biscayne Bay views, feast on international cuisine, keep it casual in a sidewalk cafe... the choice is yours.
