Miami, once a holiday destination renowned for its party scene and beaches, is now a city becoming better known for its thriving cultural and arts scene, putting it on the map as an exclusive destination encompassing sun, sea and sand, plus the delights of a sophisticated city break, all in one ultimate holiday package. Miami is a great short break destination anytime of year, although the best times are November to May, when the temperatures are lower (by lower we mean 20-25 degrees celsius on average) and the rainfall is lighter. South Beach is the most well known destination and the heart of the tourist scene in Miami, and for good reason. South Beach is littered with Art Deco buildings, world class shops, museums, restaurants and cafes, all scattered along a beautiful stretch of coastline. South Beach is also home to some of Miami’s, if not the world's, most exclusive hotels and beach clubs, frequented by movie stars and pop legends for decades. But there is more to Miami than sipping cocktails and mingling with the partying elite on South Beach. The Design District offers flagship designer stores and a shopper’s heaven, alongside independent galleries and up and coming restaurants. The Perez Art Museum of Miami is fast becoming a destination in its own right, with spectacular views across Biscayne Bay, famous hanging gardens and a wealth of American and Latin American art. Miami is also home to the ‘Faena District’, a real estate project conceived by developer Alan Faena, and fast becoming a Mecca for cool new designer hotels, with rooftop destination bars and outdoor plunge pools the norm. To explore Miami even further why not try the vibrant neighbourhoods of Little Havana for jazz, salsa and experimental Latin restaurants or Little Haiti for countless exhibitions and concerts plus an array of arts and crafts.
