A hip city break and a hot beach holiday all in one? That's what you get when you go to Miami. The vibrancy of this place is infectious; whether you're shopping in designer boutiques, celebrity spotting in South Beach or sipping cocktails at sunset.
Browse top notch galleries, stroll along palm-lined boulevards and gaze at the deliciously bright Art deco houses. The beaches here are broad and sandy –perfect for kicking back and people watching beneath the Floridian rays. After dark, Miami really comes into its own with an electric nightlife scene that's one of the planet's best. Miami has everything you'd expect from a buzzing city, with the added bonus of sand and surf.
Pack your biggest sunglasses and head off on holiday to the best of both worlds.
Miami's south Florida location means it's warm all year round. Visit between November and April for not-too-hot highs and the driest weather.
As tempting as it seems, it's a real shame to come to Miami and do nothing but laze around on the beach. There's always something new to discover in this chic and quirky city. Visually, it's a treat, with those iconic, candy-coloured buildings, a thriving arts community and galleries aplenty. When it comes to retail therapy, there's something for all budgets and tastes – from the high end stores of The Strip, to the bargain out of town malls and the offbeat boutiques of South Beach. That stunning coastline means a plethora of water based activities; from jet skis to diving, fishing to surfing and just about everything in between.
The local cuisine is a heady mixture of Caribbean and Latino influences. Head to Little Havana for yummy Cuban dishes and a lively atmosphere. It should come as no surprise that the catch of the day in Miami is delicious, or that the seafood restaurants are out of this world. Being a big city, Miami also has its fair share of international eateries and good old American fast food joints.
Nightlife in Miami is one of the reasons why so many people flock here. Superstar DJs have been playing sets on the best of Miami's decks for years and the parties are legendary. As well as clubs, you'll find an array of other venues – from ultra sleek cocktail bars to laid back places by the beach.
