Things To Do In Miami
Famous for its fun vibey atmosphere, head to South Beach and experience the typical stereotype of Miami. Start the day with a champagne breakfast at one of the beach club bars. Play games on the long stretch of sandy beach with friends, and have a dip in the lovely warm sea. Head to Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue where you may recognise the scenery as every movie that was ever filmed in Miami was filmed here.
If you want to get a hint of Cuban culture then head to Little Havana. Pick up your Cuban cigars and take a stroll around the many shops and cafes scattered in the area whilst the air is filled with the faint sound of Latin music. Check out the Azucar Ice Cream Company and get a taste of true Cuban ice-cream.
Miami Beach Botanical Gardens
Mix up your holiday and head to the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Escape from the busy non-stop city centre to this tranquil paradise. Wander around the 2.5-acre gardens and take in the aroma of nature. Relax under a palm tree or fill your basket with local produce from the farmer’s market.
Clubs and Bars
For the party animals out there, Miami has a great party scene with lots of great bars and clubs for you to check out. If you are looking for glitz and glamour, then head to club Cameo. This renovated art deco movie theatre attracts a swanky crowd, so make sure you dress the part. Miami is also filled with loads of great bars on the beach. If you don’t fancy putting your dancing shoes on, then head to Nikki beach club and enjoy a cocktail on the beach.
