Things to see & do in Miami, USA


Things to see & do in Miami, USA

story by: Inspire USA

Travel down the east coast of the United States, and eventually you’ll find yourself in Florida, on a finger of land that pokes between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. You’re only a few degrees shy of the tropics, and that sultry atmosphere is enhanced by the rich variety of cultural influences. Be warned though – summer is a great time to visit if you’re a mosquito looking to party: otherwise, stay well clear until the temperature and humidity become more manageable. A little thing called hurricane season (August) is another good time to steer clear. Aside from that, whether you’re celebrity-spotting in stylish South Beach, taking a stroll through the Art Deco historic district, hopping a cruise ship in downtown Miami or hitting the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.

Our favourite things to see & do

• CITY TOUR – Visit Miami’s colourful neighbourhoods, Miami Beach, South Beach, Art Deco District and Little Havana. There's also an option to spend the afternoon at Bayside Market Place.

• EVERGLADE'S TOUR – It’s really a must to experience South Florida’s delicate ecological system, made up of 1.2 million acres of grasslands. See alligators, crocodiles and other exotic wildlife whilst experiencing an exhilarating airboat ride.

• KEY WEST TOUR – A tour that takes you to a city where real estate titles date back to the Kings of Spain. Stroll the palm-lined streets or just relax on the beach and soak up the atmosphere.

• SHOPPING – At Adventura shopping mall for great deals and outlet stores. Getting there by local bus is part of the experience.

• ART DECO DISTRICT – Take a self-guided walking tour around Miami’s South Beach. There is so much history all around and the architecture is to die for. Make sure you take your camera.
• DINING – Lincoln Road, South Beach has so many choices for dining as well as people watching and shopping.

• NIGHTLIFE – Ocean Drive, South Beach is the place to be at night – a great place to celebrity watch! Mangos Tropical Café and Nightclub has to be at the top of the list.

• LITTLE HAVANA – Mix with the locals at this distinctly Cuban neighbourhood. Experience the food, the culture, the music and maybe a cigar?
