Visit Miami.

When you step off your flight at Miami International Airport, you’ll be ready to conjure up some wanderlust wonder in Magic City. Whether you choose to rent a car or take advantage of a robust selection of transit options available at the airport, you’re only eight miles outside of downtown Miami and the beginning of your adventure.

A great way to experience Miami’s diversity is through its distinctive cuisine. Thanks to the Caribbean and Latin American populations in the area, Miami and South Florida are home to Floribbean Cuisine. Lovers of seafood and eclectic spices will especially enjoy this local culinary treat, flavored with red curry, ginger, and lemongrass. If you’re a fan of the Cuban sandwich, make sure to order one during your visit to the city that claims to have invented it (Tampa and other locales disagree).

Thinking about food in the context of Miami, though, may conjure connections to its famous South Beach neighborhood. Make no mistake: this earliest-settled area of Miami has much more to offer than a name evocative of restrictive dieting. Lovers of Art Deco and Streamline Moderne architecture will be in sightseeing heaven—South Beach is home to one of the world’s largest collections of examples of this beloved early-20th-century style. Indulge in a walking tour to work off that Cuban sandwich.

Miami is the only major city in the U.S. founded by a woman. Julia DeForest Tuttle convinced Henry Flagler to build his new railway through her acreage—which would later become downtown Miami. Explore the rich history of the area with visits to one of its several museums, including the Frost Art Museum, the Frost Museum of Science, and the Lowe Art Museum. If you’d prefer to immerse yourself in Miami’s contemporary art scene, visit the Wynwood Art District. Found in the Wynwood neighborhood, here you’ll find contemporary art galleries and lots of street art to explore. In fact, Wynwood Art District is home to one of the largest open-air street art installation collections in the world.
