Lots to love in Magic City

The reflection pool lined by lounge chairs in Miami

Miami has its reasons for being the Magic City. With celebrated museums, unforgettable beaches, and art extravaganzas, it’s no wonder this metropolis ranks as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The dozens of esteemed performing art centers are proof alone that creativity thrives here. Beauty lies in the community, too. Radiant art deco buildings add color to the already vibrant South Beach where nightlife shines. Mediterranean architecture joined by lavish plazas and fountains decorate Coral Gables. Stroll along Calle Ocho in Little Havana to indulge in Cuban food and culture. Hit up Wynwood, a gorgeous arts district for some inspiration or just a memorable afternoon. Looking for more than just city life? Travel to Miami’s countryside for avocado wine, fresh strawberries, and spices that make your tastebuds buzz. Don’t leave without visiting the city’s renowned beaches where you can relax in the water, watch the sunrise, or just take in the stunning views.
