The city on Biscayne Bay is crammed with attractions for visitors and it's a pleasure to simply wander around and savour the unique flavours of this city. South Beach (SoBe) is the place to see and be seen in a huge number of cool bars and restaurants. Cameras click away at sights in this part of town, including some of the famed Art Deco buildings in Ocean Drive.
Flash the plastic at the shopping malls, take a break in beautiful Bayfront Park, entertain the kids at Miami Zoo, or enjoy the architecture of the Italian Renaissance Vizcaya property in Coconut Grove. Or simply take to the white sands of Miami's beaches and soak up the sun.
Miami holidays offer adventures outside of the city too, as some major Florida attractions lie within easy reach of the southern city.
The subtropical wetlands known as the Everglades are an hour away from Miami. Visitors enjoy airboat rides in the swampy land in an attempt to spot Florida's crocodiles and alligators.
The Florida Keys, around 1,700 islands dotted off the southern tip of the state, draw lots of holidaymakers who are seeking the peace and quiet of island life.
Fort Lauderdale is also easily accessible from Miami. There's a more relaxed feel here for holidaymakers and plenty of great beaches. And, of course, the entertainment hot spot Orlando is only a four-hour drive away from the city.

Summer temperatures can be fierce in Miami, with the mercury reaching past 30C on an almost daily basis between July and September. Combine that with high humidity and a 50% chance of rain and you begin to understand why Miami is massively popular during winter months, when temperatures above 20C are the norm, the humidity level is lower and there is less chance of rain.
