Art deco buildings, miles of sandy white beaches and plenty to do, Miami is a year-round summer vacation destination for singles, couples and families. While the city has its fair share of museum exhibits and cultural locations (don't miss the Ancient Spanish Monastery), it's the beach scene, nightlife, exotic cuisine and modern hotels that are the ...

real attractions. Steamy South Beach is quickly becoming the place to see and be seen at one of the many haute couture shops, eclectic restaurants or trendy bars. For family vacationers, bring the kids to the Miami Seaquarium and Jungle Island, featuring lush gardens with animal shows and exhibits. Adults will love the plentiful golf courses, live jazz and tropical music, and chic nightclubs where everyone is dressed to impress. Miami is a top dining destination, and their unique "New World" cuisine blends local, Cuban, Latin American and international flavors. This is the city to try out a boutique hotel, as South Beach is chock-a-block with the trendiest of options. Venture out a few minutes from town to the Everglades for alligator spotting or Biscayne National Park for snorkeling among coral reefs.

(24C). While battling the crowds is normally something to avoid, this city has a pretty tolerable high season, in part because there are enough hotels to handle the spike, and also because the city is alive and buzzing with exciting activity, including the splashy Art Basel Miami Beach in December, during this time. The alternative would be to come between May and November when the weather is hot, reaching 90F (32C), and hurricanes are ever-looming.

I went to Miami with my family 7 years ago, we stayed in a hotel near the beach so we could spend time together on the beach. Also, I strongly recommend renting a car because everything it is not thought to be traveled by walking. We didn’t enjoyed way too much the nightlife because we had two children with us but if you like partying, Miami is DEFINITELY for you!

Miami has history, class and culture. You will find a plethora of hotels, cafés and beaches. South beach is very touristy, but nonetheless it has everything.

If you want to be close to the action but not pay outrageous prices, stay in Little Havana or Wynwood. Calle Ocho is a must, as well as Yambo's Restaurant, and eating a Guava Pastale (Vicky's is recommended, but anywhere will do you right.)The hidden club inside of Bacon Bitch and Coyo Taco are going to be the place to be and with no cover charge.

I love Miami because there is just so much culture. Miami is the perfect place for a group of friends or just solo. I can confidently say this because of the atmosphere and vibe the city gives. You can find affordable hotels to the most luxury of places to stay. This is a major food destination also. Miami is heavily Spanish influenced , the food is going to be reflected on that. The bars and the clubs are a great places for groups. To dive bars, to luxury places like LIV. You will find something that interest you!

Now i don’t know about “west Miami” but I’m a Kendall boy at heart I know the ins and outs of Kendall and it’s just your typical suburban place very quiet good for families but there’s just a little bit of everything around here that makes you forget Miami is a tourist attraction!
