Sunny Florida skies, a buzzing nightlife and the insistent rhythm of Cuban culture have electrified this sultry polyglot of a city fronting the Atlantic Ocean. Celebrity-drenched South Beach attracts people-watchers, but beyond the glitz, the Art Deco stylings of the Venetian Pool provide a glimpse into Miami’s sleepy past. Its symmetry with nature is reflected in the dolphins that play at Miami Sequarium and the tropical birds that flutter at Parrot Jungle Island. For each Pan-Mediterranean-Asian haute dining room is a down-home, no-nonsense Cuban bodega serving hearty food!
From water sports and sunbathing on Miami Beach to alligators in the Everglades, Miami lives outdoors. Play golf at Crandon Park, watch manatees on Coconut Grove’s waterfront, scuba dive off Jupiter Beach or simply soak up the sun. On rainy days, you can school yourself in Dutch and Italian tapestries at the upstanding Bass Museum of Art or learn about the city’s humble beginnings at the Historical Museum of Southern Florida.
Miami Shopping Tours
Miami provides an eclectic shopping experience, from designer boutiques at Bal Harbour or mainstream chains at Bayside Marketplace. Miami likes its mega-malls, and one of the best is Aventura Mall, which houses a fabulous collection of shops and department stores. Look for new art and furniture in the Design District, or take home a little bit of Cuba with a hand-stitched Guayabera shirt from Little Havana. Pick up incense and Indian imports from Española Way’s Mediterranean storefronts, which close to traffic on Sunday afternoons.
