Top Reasons To Go

  1. The beach Miami Beach has been rated as one of the 10 best in the world. White sand, warm water, and bronzed bodies everywhere provide just the right mix of relaxation and people-watching.
  2. Dining delights Miami's eclectic residents have transformed the city into a museum of epicurean wonders, ranging from Cuban and Argentine fare to fusion haute cuisine.
  3. Wee-hour parties A 24-hour liquor license means clubs stay open until 5 am, and after-parties go until noon the following day.
  4. Picture-perfect people Miami is a watering hole for the vain and beautiful of South America, Europe, and the Northeast. Watch them—or join them—as they strut their stuff and flaunt their tans on the white beds of renowned art-deco hotels.
  5. Art deco district Iconic pastels and neon lights accessorize the architecture that first put South Beach on the map in the 1930s.
