Do & See
Miami has unlimited ways to charm visitors. The natural beauty of the city and its surroundings are breath-taking, and the great weather makes outdoor activities a possibility pretty much all year round. But Miami's architectural past and vibrant art scene will tempt you to spend some time indoors, and the warmth of the vastly international population will make you want to stay for good. Explore a little further from the city proper and discover the wonders of the Everglades or the Florida Keys, or stay close by and enjoy some of the beast beaches on the planet.
