If you are looking for that vacation with the perfect balance of relaxation and excitement, look no further than Miami, FL. Many travelers flock here year-round to enjoy the white sandy beaches, clear blue waters and a blend of tropical and Latin flavors. But many find the world-class shopping, dining and nightlife hard to resist. Stay with Choice Hotels in Miami and enjoy the city’s hotspots just a short trip away, including:
Just minutes from downtown Miami over the Rickenbacker Causeway is the island town of Key Biscayne. Although widely known as home of the Sony Open tennis tournament, Key Biscayne offers some of the best golf, boating and most beautiful beaches in the world.
If you come to Miami for the party, you are likely to find your way to South Beach. In addition to its electrifying nightlife, the world-class shopping, excellent dining and stunning beaches make the area a must-see for anyone visiting South Florida. Set foot and let the nonstop energy consume you, with beautiful people all around and even the occasional celebrity sighting!
But if you were not able to spot that famous star in South Beach, you may find him or her browsing at the Bal Harbour Shops. This is the place to splurge, with plenty of swanky stores like Tiffany, Prada and other upscale boutiques. The restaurants are charming and delicious, and the sights of the tropical garden setting create that genuine Florida experience.
Continue your self-indulgence at Coconut Grove, which also offers exquisite restaurants and unique shops. Many events also take place here throughout the year, so see what excitement is brewing during your visit. If you are here in February, check out the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. In December, try to catch the King Mango Strut festival and parade.
Miami is famous for its deep Cuban roots, culture and cuisine. At Little Havana you will find them radiating throughout all the local art galleries, studios, restaurants, theaters and shops. Take a walk around this vibrant neighborhood and take in that distinct Latin flavor all around you, with billboards in Spanish, fruit stands to die for and cigar factories like nowhere else in the United States.
Located on the west shore of Biscayne Bay is the Vizcaya Musuem & Gardens. A National Historic Landmark, Vizcaya is a palace in its own right - rooms are exceptionally decorated and filled with antiques dating as far back as the 15th Century. The formal gardens outside are reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance and a wonderful place for a stroll. With so much to see and do, you can easily spend a day or more exploring the grounds.
It is never a bad time to visit Miami, especially with the warm Florida climate year-round and an abundance of beaches and attractions.
