Greater Miami

Inclusive and boasting a thriving LGBTQ+ community, Greater Miami is a great choice for same-sex honeymoons, family holidays, and solo travel. Renowned for its vibrant and colourful character, the region is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations and is also home to an abundance of exclusive hotels and resorts.

At a glance

Whilst the visual thrill of the art-deco South Beach is widely known, there is no shortage of luxury resorts and hotels in other areas of the Greater Miami region. With an array of outdoor activities, wellness experiences, and water sports all waiting to be enjoyed, the Greater Miami region is also rich with opportunities for relaxation and discovery.

When it comes to luxury travel, it’s important to find a resort that will provide unforgettable memories throughout your stay. Thankfully, you can rest assured that whichever five-star property you choose for your sun-soaked getaway, you’ll find a glamorous and characterful atmosphere – perfect for enjoying an unparalleled level of luxury.

If you’re after the campy decadence that made Miami a staple of 80s and 90s cinema, you can’t beat a trip to South Beach. This electrifying neighbourhood is also home to one of the USA’s most beautiful and lively beaches. A quieter vacation can be enjoyed in the palm-fringed gardens of Coconut Grove, a warren of stunning mansions and luxury resorts. Coconut Grove is a tranquil suburbian haven, where fans of sailing can moor their yachts before heading ashore.

LGBT rights in Greater Miami

Whilst the wider Florida population expresses a mixed attitude to LGBTQ+ rights, travellers to the Greater Miami region will find a liberal and diverse society. The City of Miami is home to one of the USA’s largest LGBTQ+ communities, and as such is a hub of queer-focused events.

Travel Information

The beauty of Greater Miami is not only its fantastic year-round weather but also the huge selection of luxury hotels and resorts scattered across a diverse patchwork of characterful neighbourhoods. These high-end properties span a range of design styles and environments, meaning that regardless of whether you’re a city-loving minimalist or a water-sports fan with a passion for art-deco interiors, you’re guaranteed to find somewhere you love in Greater Miami.

With sprawling natural landscapes such as Rainbow Springs State Park and a network of inland canals, Greater Miami is the ideal location for travellers seeking invigorating outdoor experiences. For those after an escape from the stress of daily life, the unique landscapes and soothing climate of the region have given rise to a flourishing collection of wellness and spa retreats.

The overwhelming diversity of Greater Miami’s various neighborhoods and local regions means that the area is a magnet for a range of international festivals and events. Throughout the year Greater Miami sees an astounding array of unmissable one-off experiences, from some of the USA’s largest pride celebrations to the cultural delights of Miami Fashion Week and Art Basel Miami. The lush expanses of Greater Miami’s sprawling natural spaces, such as the Rainbow Springs State Park, also see a number of sporting and adventure events taking place throughout the year.

A highlight of Greater Miami’s annual events calendar is, without doubt, the Art Deco Weekend – the Miami Design Preservation League’s annual festival. The weekend is a consistent hit with locals and visitors alike and features a program of free events, marketplaces, lectures, and guided tours all designed to raise money and awareness for Greater Miami’s unique art deco architectural heritage. The event takes place in late-April and can be found along Miami Beach’s Ocean Drive.

Whilst you are in lively Miami Beach, it would be a mistake not to visit one of the area’s iconic cocktail bars. From hidden hole-in-the-wall venues to sumptuous drag lounges, whatever your tastes you’ll find a glamorous watering hole to suit.

Home to a noticeably creative community and large Latin population, the neighborhood of Allapattah is one of Greater Miami’s most vibrant. It’s no surprise therefore that it’s also where you can find one of the region’s most exciting artistic experiences, Superblue Miami. This sprawling art space is dedicated to facilitating immersive artistic adventures that showcase the cutting-edge of contemporary design.

Reaching Greater Miami is a walk in the park. Sitting on the edge of Biscayne Bay on Florida’s southern tip, the region is easily accessed by car, air, or rail, meaning that a trip to Greater Miami never needs to be a daunting experience. If you are visiting by car, the best way to reach the destination is via Interstate 95 or Interstate 75, both of which will see you approaching the glistening downtown of the City of Miami itself. Similarly simple, international visitors will most likely arrive in Greater Miami through Miami International Airport – named in 2021 as North America’s best mega airport.

Why not combine your time in Greater Miami with a cruise on one of the hundreds of ocean liners that visit Greater Miami annually? Nearly 7 million passengers pass through PortMiami each year, and many choose to enhance their cruising experience with some post-boat sightseeing in one of the USA’s most lively travel destinations.

Once in Greater Miami, traveling between each distinctive neighborhood couldn’t be easier, thanks to an impressive network of Metromovers, rental bikes, and the Brightline intercity rail system. Each of these enjoyable methods of transport gives you unbridled freedom to explore the Greater Miami area and experience a range of unique and characterful locations. The Metrorail is one of the most popular ways to move around Greater Miami, and this elevated rapid transit system connects the airport with 23 accessible stations – it’s a great way to reach some of Greater Miami’s top tourist attractions.
