Greater Miami Vacations

Three things come to mind when most think of Greater Miami: miles of beaches, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and no-boundaries spring break vacations. The truth is, Miami is also home to a healthy dose of the arts (the annual gargantuan art fair Art Basel and the Miami City Ballet are just two examples) as well as a large banking and business ...

sector. The region is urban glamour perfected: from ritzy Lincoln Road to bohemian Coconut Grove, the fabled parties on Miami Beach to the world-famous Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, Greater Miami has plenty to offer and excite. It's also a proudly diverse area: the many neighborhoods of Miami envelop a large Hispanic population, with over half of the residents claiming Spanish as their first language.

December through April is when all of the snowbirds (read: visitors from northern states looking for a place to thaw out) flood the beaches to take advantage of Miami’s warmth, with temeratures in the mid 70s ... Read more
(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 grew up here. Lived here about 20 years and go back at least two weeks a year.


Never surf, sun and serendipity. I could live in Miami for 10 years and find something different to do every day. The people, food, fashion and energy grab a hold and never let go. I LOVE it.

Miami is a very unique city, even though it is in the US it certainly doesn't feel that way.

Hollywood, Florida, USA

Although a fairly 'new' city...well it was only incorporated in 1898, Miami has a nuanced historical charm that should be explored. Take a stop first at the HistoryMiami museum which will wet your palate with whimsical stories and artifacts from Miami's beginnings. Then, take a trolley through downtown Miami and visit sites such as the ancient Tequesta Indian excavation. Or head over for some Latin flavor in Little Havana. While you're there, don't forget your café con leche. Then, head on over to sunbathe at Cape Biggs where you'll surely see native Florida birds and wildlife doing the same.

Miami is an exciting and unique city that spreads across numerous bays and beach fronts. The city bolsters it's own unique culture and architecture that makes it one of the most interesting beach front cities in America. It does not get cold in Miami and many Americans will flock there in order to swap harsh northern winters for seventy degree beaches.

Miami is a city I really adore. I like it for its colours, climate, relaxed atmosphere, beaches, restaurants, hotels. I've been several times, but I enjoy going back again and again. I like it for its capability of renewing and creating new attractive areas.
