Top Things to Do in Miami

Tropical and lively, South Florida attracts every kind of traveler throughout the year. With its near-perfect weather (or tropical climate?) and diverse activities, this massive area is a never-ending adventure. Bustling nightlife, breezy outdoor shopping spots, lazy days on the beach and almost anything else a visitor can imagine awaits in South Florida.

Try out the beaches or parks, enjoy the salsa music pouring out of shops in Little Havana, stroll the day away at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens or shop at Aventura Mall or Bayside Marketplace (but be sure to “drop” by one of the many great restaurants). There are many places throughout Miami that over time have become icons of the city, from restaurants and dive-bars to everything in-between. First-time visitors should stop by these unique places to get a feel for the area and to experience the real essence of Miami.
