Things to do and see in Miami…

Miami is one of the more popular names of cities of the United States. It has received a lot of attention in both national and international media and for good reason. The largest metropolitan city of the state of Florida is divided into three major districts – Downtown, North and West/South. Each of these districts hosts a number of tourist attractions and activities so if you’re wondering which city of the country to visit next on your holiday, try Miami!

Seaside Activities and Beaches of Miami

The beaches of Miami are, hands down, the hot spots for tourists and natives alike. The Miami Beach, lining the Pacific and across the Biscayne Bay is a perfect place to soak in the sun and make vacation memories. Other beaches that are equally, if not more, popular are the South beach and the Haulover Beach Park in the North where you can enjoy topless sunbathing.

Along with hanging by the beach, the city is also unique in its transport and tours.  Boat tours and airboat tours are fun activities for everyone to get around and take a wider view at the skyline of Miami.

Food and Cuisine at Miami

Along with its sunny beaches, the city is also known for its versatile range of food and cuisines. The Bongos Cuban Café is one of the most popular cafes of Miami with a Latin theme and Latin flavors.

La Carreta, a Cuban restaurant, is located at the International airport and serves 5-star gourmet food that tourists love. Other eateries worth checking out are Chef Allen’s, Casa Tua and OLA.  

A good friend, Bob Lyall, who is the managing partner at PAW Materials, a company that provides dumpster rentals in Wesley Chapel Florida, has spent many mini vacations visiting the Miami beaches and always raves about the food.  He says the Atlantic Coast is MUCH different from the Gulf Coast where he lives in Hudson Florida.

Festivals and Events

The public events held in Miami are the reason why the city is always so energetic and festive. Apart from the hot months of July and August, a number of fun events are held in this city of Florida. Some of these include the Ultra Music Festival (arguably the most anticipated festival in Miami of the year), Miami Fashion Week, Carnaval Miami and the South Beach Food Festival.
