For decades Miami has been one of the flashiest vacation destinations due to its glorious white beaches, easy vibe and party atmosphere. Although only 3 flight hours from New York, Miami couldn’t feel any further from New York.
Compared to NY Miami feels and looks like its loud, colorful and less refined sister. What Miami might lack in sophistication it makes up with its laid back attitude.
What to do:
South beach is Miami’s place to be. Long, sandy beaches lined with restaurants and bars, a unique Artdeco architecture and salsa rhythms in the air. What is there not to love?
Bayside Market Place hosts shops and restaurants and a stunning view of Miami’s skyline.
Lincoln Street offers a great variety of stores. The place for some easy going post-beach shopping
Where to eat:
Casa Tua close by South Beach offers an intimate setting and Italian cuisine. The restaurant is a favourite amongst celebs and you might find yourself sitting next to Cameron Diaz.
Zuma is a stylish sushi restaurant whichfeatures an open kitchen, a beautiful bayside view and a lively crowd. This is where Miami’s rich and beautiful hang out.
Where to party :
Mango’s Tropical Café is a world famous South Beach destination with live music from Salsa to Samba and great mojitos. A perfect place to let your hair down and dance the night away.
Feel like rubbing shoulders with Beyonce on the dance floor? LIV is Miami’s most exclusive and celeb studded club. Be warned though – to get in you will need to dress the part and bring some very deep pockets.
Where to stay:
Hotel Victor offers a prime location on South Beach and features a roof top pool overlooking the beach.
