          Miami


          Use the drop-down menu below to explore Miami.

          Shining as a beacon of world-class nightlife, local art and culture, and the warm embrace of golden sunshine that lasts year-round, Miami beckons to visitors from all over the world. Home to the world’s largest collection of Art Deco architecture, silk-sandy beaches, authentic cultural diversity, and the plunging necklines of fashionista beach wear, this steamy locale boasts a truly unique flair. 

          Located nearly at the south-eastern-most point of the continental United States, the city of Miami, which celebrated its one-hundredth birthday in 1996, conjures images of sunny beaches, tourists, and immigrants, and it is also a major centre for international trade. Since Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba at the end of the 1950's, successive waves of Cuban immigrants have dramatically changed the ethnic composition of the city, which is now over 50 percent Hispanic, and informally known as "the capital of Latin America."

          Miami today is a colourful, cosmopolitan city, revelling in its ethnic diversity. Downtown Miami is an area of great cultural diversity, where one can often hear Spanish, English, Hebrew, and other languages spoken. The heart of downtown is the intersection of Miami Avenue and Flagler Street. A dozen or so blocks along Flagler make up the city's shopping and theatre district. Surrounding the central city are suburbs including Little Havana, the Bohemian-flavoured Coconut Grove, West Miami, North and South Miami, and Coral Gables.


          After undergoing a period of neglect, Miami Beach, a sand bar in the Atlantic Ocean about five kilometres (three miles) east of the mainland, is enjoying a renaissance, both among Florida natives and tourists. The trendiest spot is South Beach (nickname: SoBe), renowned for its colourful Art Deco buildings. New nightclubs, hotels, restaurants, cafés, galleries, and stores have opened in this area that used to be known primarily as a mecca for Jewish retirees from northern states, drawing an eclectic mix of urban yuppies, artists, and vacationers. The pedestrian-only thoroughfare Lincoln Road, occupying 11 blocks in the heart of South Beach, is a popular centre for culture, nightlife, and shopping. Here one may view contemporary art by the area's up-and-coming painters, hear a bookstore poetry reading, or peer through the windows of the Miami City Ballet's rehearsal studio to see its dancers at work.

          Miami's reputation for nightlife is unparalleled as various neighbourhoods have different nightlife identities. South Beach is the ideal place for people who love to party and watch the sun rise over the beach. International DJs, hip-hop artists and pop stars perform live before adoring fans. Apart from the party people and endless mega-clubs, South Beach offers intimate lounges and cocktail bars for anyone liking for a classic cocktail in a sophisticated environment. Similarly, the Wynwood Arts District provides visitors with a more laid-back and relaxed environment for a fun night out. Mural art, beer gardens, chill live music spots and the ambiance of creative professionals surround the streets of the Wynwood Arts District. 

          The neighbourhood of Coconut Grove exudes a charming and somewhat bohemian vibe as you'll be able to find laid-back waterfront bars that overlook Biscayne Bay and Dinner Key Marina. Sports bars and lounges are within walking distance of CocoWalk and with the University of Miami near Coral Gales, Coconut Grove is the perfect place for college students looking for a night out on the town.

          From exploring the history of Miami to interacting with wildlife, Miami's attractions display its exquisite beauty through adventures in the Everglades, exciting speedboat tours of the bays and oceans of Miami, and Exotic Auto Racing. The Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park allow guests to immerse themselves into the wetlands and marine environments to see various species of plants and animals as well as breath-taking coral reefs.

          For more fun and adventure, head to Jungle Islands private beach, a.k.a. Parrot Cove, where you'll also find the Rain forest Riptide. This on-the-water obstacle course is open seasonally and features ocean trampolines, slides, cliffs and swings. It’s the perfect way to spend the day soaking up the Miami sunshine and staying cool by the water.
