Miami Travel Guides

Bustling, beautiful Miami is a seaport city known for its exciting blend of culture and commerce. Named one of America's Cleanest Cities, Miami has excellent air quality, water and city streets. Nicknamed "The Magic City," it's a major hub of tourism, with views and attractions that run the gamut from its downtown skyline and historic district to world-famous Miami Beach. Miami's Cuban-American population is a great contributor to the city's distinctively Latin influences, including art, music, cigars and glorious food.

Where to Stay

Hotels in Miami are plentiful, with more than 50,000 rooms. But with a daily occupancy rate of 84 percent — the highest in the country — the city is continually adding rooms. Many of those hotels offer amenities such as Wi-Fi, fitness rooms and in-house restaurants. If you're visiting the Magic City for work, consider staying in Downtown Miami, the heart of the business and financial district. If you're there for pleasure, the Design District is a great place to enjoy restaurants, galleries and nightclubs. You'll find upscale options in Coral Gables, in the city's southwest area along the Miracle Mile, and affordable accommodations in Coconut Grove, which is close to the University of Miami and has an active nightlife scene.


Just 8 miles from downtown Miami, Miami International Airport is considered the gateway between the United States and Latin America. With more than 44 million passengers annually, it's the 28th-busiest airport in the world. If you're lucky enough to be flying by seaplane, you can use Miami Seaplane Base, which is about 2 miles from Miami and is open to the public.

Top Things to Do

You'd be missing out if you didn't go to South Beach, where you can soak in the sunshine, people-watch and enjoy delectable dining at four-star cafes and restaurants. Miami also is known for its incredible architecture, with an Art Deco district that features buildings from the 1920s to 1940s. You may decide to stop and smell the flowers at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, get a taste of Cuba in Little Havana or dive into the freshwater Venetian Pool, a former rock quarry turned into a public swimming pool, modeled after an Italian villa.

Weather/Seasonal Information

July is the hottest month in Miami, with highs in the 80s. You can find warm weather virtually year-round, however, with high temperatures averaging in the 70s even in winter! Rainfall occurs most often in September and October, but it'll still be on the warm side.
