The beach is definitely the highlight of any trip to Miami. If lazing around on the beach is too sedate for your tastes, then spring into action with some diving, kayaking, sailing or fishing. Hot air balloon rides or yacht charters are excellent ways of seeing more of the local surroundings.
If you want to experience one of America’s national obsessions, head to Marlins Park in Little Havana, the stadium of the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball Team. During American football season, the Miami Dolphins are also a major magnet for sporting enthusiasts. An American football match is not just about sport; stadiums put on ample razzmatazz at half-time too. So, if your stay does coincide with a Dolphins home game, procuring tickets will be worth the effort.
Other items on Miami’s events calendar include the Ultra Music Festival and Carnival Miami in March, and the spectacular fireworks displays on 4 July, for Independence Day. In December, visit Miami Beach for Art Basel.
After the day is done, head to South Beach for its legendary nightlife; countless restaurants and entertainment options await you.
