Millions of people from around the world come to enjoy what you can access within minutes.

Miami Beach

Thanks to its year-round sunshine and cool ocean breezes, Miami Beach is perfectly suited for outdoor excursions. In addition to energetic and popular areas like Nikki Beach and Lumus Park, you can visit the quieter South Pointe Park, from where you can enjoy picturesque views of the waterfront and passing cruise ships. If you want another relaxing and beautiful option, there is the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, with its serene garden pathways, yoga classes, and even free theater events.

You can explore Miami Beach’s rich heritage by visiting the iconic Art Deco Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places owing to its unique and rare architecture. Other great culture attractions include the Bass Museum of Art, the Wolfsonian-FIU, and the Jewish Museum of Florida.

Key Biscayne

A trip to Key Biscayne is described by some as paradise. The village boasts pristine beaches, a range of restaurants and a state park with a lighthouse. Entering Key Biscayne, on the Rickenbacker Causeway, flaunt post-card worthy views of Miami.

Just off the Causway is the Miami Seaquarium. Covering 38 acres, the Seaquarium boasts Lolita the Killer Whale and Flipper, plus every kind of sea animal performance imaginable. In addition to all the shows, see scores of tropical fish, sea creatures and scary sharks.


Wynwood has only recently become- in a sense- a work of art, boasting a colorful visage created by paintings and street art all over the neighborhood. Now a major arts district, it has become a hub for galleries, thanks to vision of Goldman Properties in 2005. Wynwood also bosts a number of revered restaurants and more than 70 galleries, museums and collections. The second Saturday of every month, Wynwood's art walk buzzes to life with thousands of people and dozens of food trucks.

The Grove

Just a few miles south of downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay lies Villa Viscaya, an Italian Renaissance-style villa built for industrialist James Deering in the early 1900s. Capitalizing on the International Harvester fortune, Deering hired almost 10% of Miami's population to construct his mansion. The home and sprawling gardens are designated a National Historic Landmark and are now open to the public. Visitors can tour the historic house museum and view much of the original 16th- through 19th-century furnishings, tapestries and artwork Deering purchased while traveling through Europe. The villa is surrounded by more than 10 acres of formal gardens and a historic European landscape adapted to Miami's sub-tropic climate. Elaborate fountains, pools and cascades are scattered around the grounds.

Two large open-air malls, CocoWalk and the Streets of Mayfair, provide an abundant source of fashion boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and entertainment within walking distance of local residents. At night, "The Grove" comes to life with the bustle of young professionals and students visiting the restaurants and bars lining the streets of CocoWalk.

These are just a few of the many things you can enjoy in this exciting global city.
