Miami

Bienvenido a Miami.

Epic pool parties, top-notch hotels, Instagram-worthy architecture and — of course — nightlife, this southern city has it all.a

Regardless of whether you’re partial to late nights and lavish cocktails, cabanas on the beach, daytime activities or a walk along South Beach’s Sprawling Boardwalk, the options are endless throughout Miami’s culture-packed neighborhoods. There’s South Beach, of course, but don’t overlook the expansive array of rooftop restaurants, bars and nightlife in Brickell, Wynwood, and the Design District.

Pack light, you won’t need much. And hey, if you do — there’s plenty of uh-mazing shopping across the city.
