Miami

America's Party City

Miami

Party animals and jet-setters, the muscled and the siliconed, sun-worshipers and bon-vivants flock to Miami's beaches, trendy restaurants, and hip hotels. Arriving on cruise ships or in limos from the airport, Miami is where you go to party and indulge in sunny or moonlit pleasures.

It is a city with a strong Latin flair, attractive Art Deco architecture, and legendary nightlife. Blessed with an oceanfront location and mild year-round climate, there aren't too many other urban destinations as tempting as this one. Whether on a decadent weekend break or on a longer stay, there is enough going on, plenty of scenery, a growing number of art and cultural attractions, and perfect bodies to admire.

Where to Stay

Look for the hotel or hostel that best matches your budget, type of trip or personality. Here you can guarantee a room but you do NOT pay anything at the time of booking. Payments are only made at the hotel and there are no booking fees. Most hotels allow cancellations with no penalty if done up to 24 or 48 hours in advance. You'll see that information at the time of booking and again in the confirmation email.

Eating and Drinking

People-watch or take a break from shopping in Lincoln Road with a drink at one of its cafés. Then give your body enough fuel for a Miami night out by hitting the beachfront restaurants in South Beach.

Shopping

The Bal Harbour Mall is the destination for high fashion and the American and European designer labels. It was once judged the best mall in America but even more popular is Aventura Mall. From Bal Harbour to the southern end of South Beach you'll find Collins Avenue, home to some of Miami's most exclusive hotels and restaurants, as well as a few top labels. But the shopping mecca in the city is Lincoln Road, a pedestrian area filled with cafés and shops, from independent outlets to the well-known brands.
