Iconic Miami Sightseeing, From the Beach to Downtown
No matter when you visit the city known as the \"Capital of Latin America,\" there\'s always something to see. Whether shopping, photographing Downtown, spending the day on the beach, or out on the water, sightseeing in Miami is second to none. Travelers typically spend the day in the sun, soaking in the rays on paddleboards, windsurfing, snorkeling, taking in the city\'s sights, or lounging by the pool with a cocktail. Then by night, the streets come alive with beautiful people, headed out to hip restaurants, hot clubs, and bars on the beach.
A Selection of Secret Attractions
While the masses follow the typical Miami routine, you may want to try something a little different. Braving your own way is a local tradition, and one of the best ways to really see the city. Here are some ideas to get you off the beaten path:
Dive into Cuban culture with a sweet cup of Cuban coffee and a hearty empanada breakfast in Little Havana. After filling up and shopping for novelties, make your way Downtown, where museums and theaters line block after block, mixing history with cutting edge architecture to create \"The Magic City.\"
Cruise South Beach
Though a global destination, few places in the world conjure the kind of cultural, historic, sexy and scenic character of South Beach. Spend the day people-watching, as the art deco beachfront strip comes to life and neon light at night, a city stuck in time.
Biscayne National Park
Renowned to have some of the best waters for scuba diving and snorkeling in the U.S., this pristine national park proves no visit is complete without seeing Miami by sea, whether exploring the coral reef, shipwrecks, wildlife, or emerald isles of Boca Chita and Elliott Keys.
