From fashion models to million-dollar super-yachts, Miami, Florida, has always been big on aesthetics. But there's more to "Magic City" than the glitz and glamour of South Beach. Art deco buildings and MiMo architecture glisten in the city's skyline, and you'll find a treasure trove of cultural treats in the Downtown area, including some of the best museums and galleries in the South. Book a hotel near Downtown Miami and visit local landmarks like the Freedom Tower, Lowe Art Museum, and Perez Art Museum Miami.
Downtown Miami, just seven miles from Miami International Airport, is an international business hub, home to several of America's biggest corporations. Ride the elevated Metromover—it's free—and head over to Bayside Marketplace, an open-air festival center with more than 150 shops, live music, and an electric atmosphere. Shop for a souvenir or jump on a cruise; you can view the palatial Star Island homes of the rich and famous from the comfort of your boat, and see Miami's stunning skyline from the water. Don't forget to bring your camera! Feeling hungry? The nearby Brickell area is culturally diverse, with restaurants serving exotic international cuisine. Pull up a chair at a restaurant and order a Cuban sandwich—sweet ham, tasty pork, and Swiss cheese served on crunchy bread—and wash it down with a mojito. Stay in Downtown Miami hotels to be close to landmarks like HistoryMiami, a must-see attraction for anyone interested in the history of "Little Cuba." Make sure you visit Tropical Dreams: A People's History of South Florida, a permanent exhibit on the top floor that chronicles the "Sunshine State" from prehistoric times to the modern day.
