Coconut palms sway in the tradewinds as you sink your toes in warm sand and sip a cold mojito. Welcome to “Magic City.”
If we asked you to imagine a place where a modern metropolis combines with breathtaking beaches as naturally as peanut butter and jelly, the picture you paint in your mind would probably be of Miami. But this town wasn’t always glitz and glamor. Before the rich and famous made Miami their offseason playground, Biscayne Bay Country, as it was once known, was nothing more than plots of land producing citrus fruit. Luckily for you, those times are long gone, and the streets of Miami are now lined with award-winning restaurants, fashion boutiques, hip nightclubs, and so much more. From the stunning grounds of Villa Vizcaya and the Perez Art Museum to the eye-dazzling scenery of South Beach, there’s no shortage of things to do in Miami.
Speaking of South Beach, no trip to this part of South Florida is complete without paying homage to this strip of sand. Of all the free things to do in Miami, certain activities top the list—laying out under the blazing Florida sun and strolling along Ocean Drive among them. And if you’re looking to double your Instagram followers, a few selfies under the blue neon sign in front of the Colony Hotel should do the trick.
The nightlife in Miami is about as famous as the city itself, and where to go and what to do is all up to you. The clubs and bars attached to the hotels of South Beach are legendary for their pool parties—even after the sun sets. The downtown neighborhood of Brickell has plenty of chic and hip bars right next to each other, making a bar crawl an easy task.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re visiting for business, pleasure, or a combination of both; the Miami vacation packages we offer can’t be beat. Oh, the fun you’re going to have.
