Everything in Miami oozes glamour, elegance and a cosmopolitan attitude. Beaming Miami is nestled on the Atlantic coast of Florida’s most southern tip, rendering it sunny and pleasantly warm all year round. To call this city international is an understatement of criminal proportions. It is a North American core with a twist of the Caribbean, a healthy dose of Latin America, a dash of Africa, a touch of Asia and a hint of Europe. All of these elements combined give Miami a vibrant, exhilarating cultural life.
Miami boasts picturesque beaches, exceptional nightlife, plentiful shopping, and delicious dining options. Although there is an abundance of things to do in the city and on the beach, visitors should not pass up the chance to take one-day excursions to see some of the breath-taking natural surroundings of the city.
