Visit Miami Beach - City of Miami Beach


Welcome to Miami!

Miami is one of the Florida’s – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area offers multiple enticements for everyone: The trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district. The bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana. The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis. Major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Boat shows and auto racing. Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas. An international airport and the world’s busiest cruise port. The Miami area offers all of this – and so much more.

One of the main draws of Miami is its magnificent coastline, featuring miles of pristine sandy beaches bathed in abundant sunshine. From the famous South Beach with its vibrant energy, colorful lifeguard stands, and Art Deco architecture, to the tranquil stretches of Key Biscayne and the family-friendly atmosphere of Miami Beach, there is a beach for every taste.

Beyond the beaches, Miami boasts a diverse and multicultural population that has shaped its unique cultural landscape. The city is a melting pot of cultures, with a strong presence of Latin American, Caribbean, and African influences. This rich cultural tapestry is reflected in the cuisine, music, and festivals that fill the streets of Miami. From savoring delicious Cuban sandwiches and sipping cafecito in Little Havana to dancing to the rhythms of salsa, reggaeton, and calypso, visitors can immerse themselves in a vibrant fusion of flavors and sounds.

Art and design are integral to the identity of Miami. The city is home to numerous world-class art galleries, museums, and events, such as Art Basel Miami Beach, which attracts art enthusiasts from around the globe. The Wynwood Arts District showcases vibrant street art and hosts the renowned Wynwood Walls, where colorful murals adorn the walls of old warehouses, creating an open-air art gallery like no other.




Miami’s energy extends beyond the vibrant streets and beaches. The city is a hub for commerce, finance, and international trade, attracting businesses and entrepreneurs from various industries. Its strategic location as a gateway to the Americas has made it a center for global business and a key player in the fields of finance, technology, and the arts.


For nature lovers, Miami offers an abundance of outdoor activities. The nearby Everglades National Park, a unique and delicate ecosystem, provides opportunities for airboat rides, wildlife spotting, and eco-adventures. Biscayne National Park, with its stunning coral reefs and crystal-clear waters, is a paradise for snorkeling, diving, and boating enthusiasts.


As the sun sets, Miami’s nightlife comes alive. From trendy nightclubs and rooftop bars to live music venues and beachfront parties, the city offers endless entertainment options for those seeking a lively night out.

Whether it’s basking in the sun on the white sands, indulging in exquisite cuisine, exploring vibrant neighborhoods, or experiencing the vibrant art scene, Miami offers a captivating blend of relaxation, excitement, and cultural richness.
