Miami is an international city at Florida’s southeastern tip. Miami is one of the state’s and the world’s most popular vacation spots. Miami is the land of sun and surf, often conjuring images of neon, beach umbrellas, and thoroughfares riddled with convertibles. Fine dining, ballet, art Deco museums, and indulgent spas also make up the landscape of this South Florida city.
The plush hotels in Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. Some of the most fascinating things about Miami are the lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis, major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball, boat shows and auto racing and Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas. An international airport and the world’s busiest cruise port. The Miami area offers all of this and so much more. Peak season in the greater Miami area is right when things are starting to heat up which is from January through April.
