Miami is sometimes called the Magic City due to the extraordinary boom it experienced during World War II (when it was a major hub of U.S. submarine activity) and in the decades after as it became home to immigrants from Latin America and grew into a major business center. The Magic City is full of other reasons to be considered magical, including a wealth of arts and artists, musicians, fashion events, film festivals, and so much more.
Tour Miami to discover not only the robust city life, full of bustling people and things to do, but also the beaches and parks that the city encompasses. You can scuba dive and snorkel in Biscayne Bay, which is home to a coral reef. Or you can sail, boat, and fish in the many waterways and on the Atlantic itself. Lay out in the sun and soak in the gorgeous weather, known for being mild year-round. Leave some footprints on sandy beaches or take a break from shopping with a walk under the palm trees in Museum Park, located in the heart of the downtown area. Miami offers outdoor fun in the sun all year round.
As a major hub for U.S. businesses, arts, and tourism, Miami has no small number of museums and performing arts centers. Catch a concert, anything from rock to classical is waiting to be discovered. Attend a play or a dance performance. Don't forget to make your dinner reservation! Miami's local cuisine is a delicious mix of Caribbean, Latin American, and Southern U.S. flavors. Savor your meal before your show and enjoy dessert afterward, perhaps at a sidewalk café or a terrace overlooking the ocean.
From the shady pines of the Everglades to the comfortable lanais you can relax on, Miami’s host of activities to do and things to see will make your stay memorable.
