Holidays in Miami are a byword for excitement with a guarantee of fun-filled days, places to see, parks to visit, and nightlife options to enjoy. Miami is a rich and fast paced city, located in Florida, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The city has earned the nickname "Capital of Latin America" due to the Spanish speaking majority, thus creating a diverse and interesting culture.
A famous port of call for cruise ships, Miami, now one of America's busiest ports, has the benefit of the Gulf Stream warming its coastal waters. Perhaps best known for Miami Beach and South Beach, the stunning Art Deco buildings have been preserved and many now operate as thriving hotels. The lovely promenade area, lined with swaying palms, is the place to enjoy a coffee or cool drink and watch the world go by to your heart's content. Remember Miami Vice? This is the real deal!
Miami holidays are ideal for soaking up the sun on white sand beaches, then spending the evenings in any of the amazing selection of restaurants, bars, or live music venues or simply strolling the length of the promenade. However, it's hard not to be starstruck with the parade of opulence from the open-top cars and beautifully preserved Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles and Chevys to the jewel bedecked, perma-tanned individuals who sashay, day and night, on a perpetual "rambla".
The waterfront is lined with enormous, vast, huge, gigantic (ok, very large!) houses and mansions, one looking more opulent and decadent than the next. Swimming pools are naturally de rigueur and the sheer wealth on show is like something Jay Gatsby would have approved!
Gateway to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld and many major attractions, Miami holidays are always family favourites. Drive through the Everglades or make a beeline for Busch Gardens in Tampa. You will absolutely adore holidays in Miami and the only problem will be choosing what brilliant park or daredevil ride or fun attraction you want to visit.
From the plush hotels of Miami Beach to glitzy shopping malls, from the lure of sunbathing to the joy of deep sea fishing, from the uber trendy nightlife in South Beach to the roadside diner offering grits and eggs over-easy, holidays in Miami will never be dull! Chances are, you may spot the odd celebrity too.
