Miami, Florida, U.S.A.

Made legendary during the whimsical Art Deco era, and again when Crockett and Tubbs of “Miami Vice” thrilled us as they raced across our mysterious streets, Miami has evolved into the world’s premier playground – so much more than it ever was before. Officially called Greater Miami and the Beaches, our destination offers a fascinating blend of cutting edge of urban chic and Old World Florida, its tropical beauty calling to Ponce de Leon like a siren in 1513.

Great year-round weather, top-ranked beaches and the sparkling waters of Biscayne Bay are the backdrops for a cosmopolitan metropolis, pulsing with the rhythms of its diverse population. Boasting a now “grown up” yet playful arts and cultural landscape, renowned nightlife scene and world-class dining and entertainment, Miami invites an eclectic mix of visitors to come out and play — from celebrities to families seeking fun in the sun.

Glorious weather has always been the main attraction, with yearly temperatures in Miami averaging 76°F. Sun-kissed days feature bluer than blue skies, dotted with surreal cotton candy clouds. Gentle breezes keep things cool throughout the day, while sultry temperatures heat up clear “Moon over Miami” evenings.

Located a few degrees above the Tropic of Cancer, Miami comprises a network of barrier islands, coral rock and mangrove swamps, connected by manmade additions of soaring bridges and causeways with panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. Miles and miles of white sand beaches with sultry Caribbean blue ocean waves hug the coastline. To the south and west, Everglades National Park, the third largest in the U.S. National Park System, is a unique 1.5 million-acre eco-system of sawgrass prairies, mangrove swamps, subtropical jungle and the warm waters of Florida Bay. Nearby, the primarily underwater Biscayne National Park is teeming with sea life and plants, and features living coral reefs as well as the longest stretch of mangrove forest left on Florida’s east coast within its 173,000 acres.

With an unparalleled mix of ethnic and cultural groups spread throughout the sprawling city (more than 100 languages are spoken here), Miami offers a live and let live philosophy — an essential attitude in a large city with so many different points of view. Visitors instantly pick up on the local laid-back mood; and stress melts away upon arrival at the newly revamped Miami International Airport, a short drive to most major destinations and an inspiring collection of hotels, from casual and chic boutiques to the world’s leading luxury properties. A meandering collection of more than 35 distinct municipalities spread out over 2,000 square miles, Miami is home to over 2 million people, many of whom came here to play and never went home. Some areas, like South Beach’s Art Deco District, are internationally renowned, while other less-heralded burgs like Coral Gables, Little Havana and Coconut Grove are hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered by intrepid explorers.

Beaches in Miami

Once in South Beach, the Art Deco District pulls you in with an imaginative collection of more than 800 architecturally protected buildings from the 1930s and 1940s — the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture in the world. Anointed the “American Riviera,” South Beach is crowned by Ocean Drive, a worldwide catwalk of see-and-be-seen boutique hotels with models, alfresco cafés, bikini-clad in-line skaters and beaches packed with beautiful young sun seekers.
