Be sure to steal a glance out the window as you fly into Miami International Airport—you’ll be greeted by the sight of paradise. Palm trees will line any path you choose during your Miami adventure.
Where should you start? Well, every trip to Miami should include a visit to the beach and there are so many to choose from! Start with South Beach, the area’s most famous sandy spot, known for its white sand, warm water, and unmatched people watching. After soaking up the sun, head to the southern tip of South Beach to South Pointe Park. The stunning panoramic view from here includes downtown Miami, Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island, and cruise ships coming into and out of port. Take a stroll along the walking trails, enjoy the kids’ playground and splash park, or watch the surfers along the jetties—you can’t go wrong when you spend a day at South Beach.
After enjoying Miami’s beaches, visit some of the neighborhoods that make up the city. Little Havana is famous throughout the country for its celebration of all things Cuban and it should definitely be added to your trip itinerary. And don’t miss Little Haiti, a must-see neighborhood providing an unparalleled taste of the French-Creole culture. The Haitian American immigrants who call Little Haiti home have created a rich historical district filled with celebrations of the arts, music, cuisine, dance, and more. Colorful murals, lush parks, and hip boutiques make this one of Miami’s most eclectic and vivacious districts.
Miami’s own Floribbean cuisine can be found throughout the city in celebrity-run fine dining restaurants and family-owned eateries alike. Born from a fusion of Caribbean, Hispanic, and Asian foods and spices, Floribbean menus include unique varieties of grits, cobblers, seafood, and more. No matter what your tastebuds crave, there’s something for everyone.
