Miami is a city which feels like it’s always on holiday, laid-back by day and partying hard at night. If you want to really let your hair down, this Florida party city is the perfect place to come.
Thanks to its tropical location, this gorgeous seaside destination enjoys year-round perfect weather. Miami is also where you’ll find some of the best beaches in the US, boasting crystal-clear waters and perfect white sands.
There are plenty of them too, with a beach for every want or need. Take your pick from people-watching on South Beach, palm-shaded walking trails in South Pointe Park or swimming in the lagoon-like waters on Crandon Park Beach.
Water activities are a pretty big deal wherever you go, so you’ll find plenty of opportunities for kayaking, paddleboarding and parasailing. Divers and snorkellers can also explore the colourful corals and marine life of the Strait of Florida, the third largest barrier reef in the world.
This is just one of many chances to see Miami’s wilder side, and we don’t mean the nightclubs. Drive through the Florida Keys and no fewer than 15 protected marine sanctuaries, or up to Lee County Manatee Park to see endangered manatees.
In the city itself, you’ll find Art Deco architecture around every corner, an eye-catching and colourful mix of retro and Neoclassical styles. You’ll see this in full pastel-hued glory on Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue. You can even take a tour to see some of the 800+ Art Deco buildings here.
As the sun starts to set, Miami is your playground. Take a private charter and have a romantic dinner on a sailboat, or head to one of the many celebrity-chef owned restaurants dotted across the city. If you can’t decide, sample a little of everything at the fabulous Time Out Market Miami. If you can get your hands on some local croquetas, guava pastry or bacalao (cod), all the better.
And as night falls, Miami really starts to heat up. Party animals can hit one of the many nightclubs, DJ pool parties or rooftop bars which never seem to close, or just chill out with a mojito at a local hangout.
