Miami Travel Guide

Best of Miami

Miami has long been a first tourist destination, applauded for its physical beauty and its fantabulous climate. Year round, the legendary white-sand beaches and clear blue waters took Miami Beach have beckoned visitors to America’s ‘Riviera’. Others are lured by Miami’s world-class shopping and cosmopolitan dining, its international culture and legendary nightlife.

Several neighbourhoods of Miami provide a range of activities, from cultural to sporting. Residential Coral Gables is glorious for its examples of architectural elegance, including the Biltmore Hotel, Fairchild Tropical Garden and the incomparable Venetian Pool, while the bustling Bayside harbour complex in Downtown Miami provides boat excursions. The clearly Latin district of Little Havana, place to the city’s huge Cuban population, possesses cigar-making shops and is the place to be in March for the lively Calle Ocho Festival. Over in Miami Beach, South Beach is one of the most-visited neighbourhoods, famous for its pastel and stainless steel Art Deco buildings, where the legendary Ocean Drive boulevard is fringed by Miami’s trendiest sidewalk boutiques, bars and restaurants – the favourite haunts of such local celebrities as Gloria Estefan, Madonna, Ricky Martin and Donatella Versace.

Possibly biggest crowd-puller of Miami is its rich multicultural flavour, which makes the city an undeniably unique atmosphere. Just as the rest of America has embraced the rhythms of heart-throb Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Shakira and other Hispanic music sensations, Miami has long been swaying to a Latin remix of sensuality, salsa and South Beach style, making it one of the most beautiful cities in the United States.

Visitors should observe that Miami is separated into quadrants. Flagler Street operates east–west, thus separating the city into north and south sections, while Miami Avenue operates north–south, splitting the city into east and west sections. Most Miami addresses refer to these quadrants.
