Miami

Days

Situated on Florida's south-eastern tip, Miami's powdery white-sand beaches, tree-lined boulevards and sparkling waters draw in an equally good looking crowd. South Beach is the main tourist attraction thanks to its lively bars, restaurants and nightlife, but there's plenty to do outside of this area if you want a more cultural experience. You may want to catch a cab to Biscayne Boulevard (nicknamed Miami's Design District) for a huge choice of art galleries, or perhaps you will visit the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a charming estate designed in Mediterranean Revival architecture style. In the evening, the Little Havana neighbourhood offers salsa, cocktails and plenty of Latin flavour.
