The City of Miami can be found on the Atlantic coast on the south-eastern side of Florida. As Florida's largest city this is busy metropolitan area and a place to see and be seen in. Especially with the many restaurants, bars and clubs of South Beach famous for celebrities and the music and film industry.
In addition to it's film related glamour the City also offers a range of different cultural experiences including local entertainment venues, theatres and performing arts centres. These include the Adrienne Arsht Centre for the Performing Arts, Ziff Ballet Opera House, Knight Concert Hall and Bayfront Park Amphitheatre. Not to mention the wide variety of museums and parks that make for a great family day out.
Local museums display both art and science exhibitions and include the Miami Art Museum, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and the Miami-Dade Cultural Centre. However for a real taste of Miami's colourful cultural scene why not take a trip to the Capital of Little Havana.
Here you can enjoy good music, food and if you get your timing right some excellent carnival fun with the annual Calle Ocho street festival. Or, for something a little more relaxing take a trip to the historic Port of Miami, Fisher island, or the local marine life at the Seaquarium.
Additional sites of interest include the Botanicas, Jimbo's, Wolfsonian and Lincoln Road Mall for shopping. Or why not head out to the Everglades for nature, Kennedy Space centre, the Florida Keys, key West and key Biscayne, Coconut grove and Miami Zoo. Whatever you choose to do there's enough to keep all ages happy and entertained and all without the hassle and stress of travelling too far away from the City.
Travelling in and around the City is simple using the local rail and road systems, with the Metrorail providing an efficient connection between the suburbs, central business districts and the airport.
Flying into the area is equally simple with a range of major airlines offering Miami flights suitable for both tourist and business travellers.
