Miami is one of the state's – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area does indeed offer multiple enticements for everyone:
The trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district.
The bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana.
The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables.Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region.
The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis.
Miami's major league football, basketball, hockey, and baseball.
Boat shows and auto racing.
Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas.
An international airport and the world’s busiest cruise port.
Miami Beach is everything you've heard about, but you have to see it for yourself.
Take an Art Deco tour of Miami Beach to fully appreciate the area's signature architecture. The South Beach Art Deco District is a whimsical collection of more than 800 architecturally protected buildings in Miami Beach from the 1930s and 1940s – a definite must-see.
Stay in one of its boutique or throwback hotels – you'll also find some of Miami Beach's finest dining, nightlife and spas here.
North Beach's Ocean Terrace is fast becoming a smaller version of South Beach, with inviting oceanfront hotels and cafés.
Regardless, be sure to go for a beachside stroll or to Haulover Park for fishing, bike rides, tennis or golf.
And, of course, Miami Beach’s nightlife always concludes an unforgettable vacation day.
