From sexy South Beach to jet-set Brickell, Miami is a city that’s made for the spotlight.
Welcome to Florida’s ultimate hot spot. Situated on the state’s southern tip, this so-called Magic City sizzles with jaw-dropping beaches, world-renowned architecture, and some of the wildest parties this side of the Atlantic. Marvel at the severely beautiful landscapes. Sample of mix of Cuban delicacies and Michelin-starred delights. Dance ‘til dawn at a downtown club, or get your late-night kicks at one of the buzzing beach bars. With a Miami vacation package, everything is within your reach.
Miami is known for its fiery combination of scenery and style, and travelers have adored this mix since the city's initial boom in the 1920s. Think of it like an American version of the French and Italian Rivieras; Miami travel offers a similarly cosmopolitan charm, but with a spicy attitude all its own.
For the most concentrated taste of the local vibe, start your Miami vacation in South Beach. This seaside paradise is glamorous as all get out, but you’ll see just as many Art Deco stunners as you will skimpy bikinis. Slide down Ocean Drive for a peek at the neon-framed hotels, and then hop over to the luxury shops on Collins to give your credit card a workout. Keep your eyes peeled for Miami deals and discounts; you might just find the cheap treat of your dreams.
Singles can head to the condo-dotted Brickell from here — its scene-stealing bars are the buzz of the town — but family trips to Miami require something a touch tamer. Channel a different sort of wild side at the Everglades Alligator Farm, let your little ones explore the tropical species at Jungle Island, or go for a swim at the limestone Venetian Pool. The up-and-coming MiMo Boulevard may not appeal to children at first sight, but this newly revived design district is a great spot to enjoy a kid-friendly meal. Whether you’re planning the perfect family getaway or want to revel in the party scene, the best holidays begin in Miami.
