Planning Your Trip

Miami has beautiful weather year-round, which means you’ll spend a lot of time outdoors. Prepare for days in the sun and on your feet as well as evenings out at restaurants and clubs.


EXPLORING THE CITY

From Little Havana and Wynwood to the Art Deco and Design Districts, Miami is filled with restaurants, shops, historical attractions, museums and sights.

  • A sturdy pair of sandals can offer ventilation on hot and humid days.
  • Although it’s almost always warm outside, air-conditioning cools things off significantly so bring a shawl or light jacket to wear indoors.
  • A tote bag is ideal for carrying water along with the day’s purchases.

DAY TRIPS

South Beach offers more than enough to keep any curious traveler busy, but try venturing farther afield to discover another side of South Florida.

  • Take a boat to discover beautiful secluded islands around Biscayne Bay. Bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a guidebook that explains the history of each place.
  • The historic mansion of Vizcaya features incredible gardens that require comfortable shoes to explore.
  • A boat trip in the Everglades is a quintessential excursion and especially thrilling for kids. Don’t forget hats and sunscreen.  

Don’t Forget:

Miami is a photogenic city, from the serene ocean and colorful street art to Art Deco buildings and Little Havana. Bring along your camera, or phone, to make sure you capture every moment.


Miami’s distinct, walkable neighborhoods guarantee discoveries along the way, but there are some experiences worth reserving.

The cozy Stubborn Seed in the high-end South of Fifth neighborhood is the debut of “Top Chef” winner Jeremy Ford. And at the riverfront Seaspice, brasserie-style cuisine is paired with a beautiful view.

CHILDREN’S ACTIVITIES


Miami is filled with kid-friendly offerings. Zoo Miami is the largest tropical zoo in the continental United States with 2,000 animals, camel rides and a giraffe-feeding station.

OUTDOOR EXCURSIONS
