Things to do in Miami

Party in the city where the heat is on all night, on the beach till the break of dawn

Welcome to Miami

Miami is one of the state’s – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area does indeed offer multiple enticements for everyone: from the nightlife at South Beach and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana and the seemingly endless shopping opportunities in Coconut Grove to the lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis. And not to forget: it’s the busiest cruise port in the world!
