Steamy Miami clings to Florida's shoreline, washed by ocean waves and cooled by Atlantic breezes...
Book a Miami city break, fly into Florida's coolest city and unpack your most stylish holiday threads for the experience of a lifetime. In Miami Beach, priorities include playing in the surf and looking good in a bikini. Further inland are Miami's best museums. A causeway leads south-east to Key Biscayne with its sandy beaches and varied sea life. Then there's the zoo, the immaculate gardens, family parks, the nearby Everglades. If you thought Miami was just about the beaches and the dance clubs, think again.
Of course the beaches are some of the best in Florida, so you must spend some time on the sands and get acquainted with the daily rituals of life by the ocean. Miami Beach and South Beach are the undoubted stars of the show, where iconic pastel-coloured lifeguard stations stand watch over white sands and bronzed bodies. But don't forget some of the area's other fantastic seaside spots, such as Sunny Isles Beach, Virginia Key Beach and Bal Harbour Beach.
When you've soaked up enough sun for the day, take a look at Miami's other attractions. The Art Deco district around Ocean Drive in South Beach is a wonderful spot, while families enjoy time at Miami Zoo, Seaquarium, the Miami Children's Museum and Monkey Jungle.
The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, HistoryMiami and the Ancient Spanish Monastery are also worth a look. Shoppers will want to explore the rails in the cool interiors of shops in Bal Harbour, Aventura Mall and the Miracle Mile.
