Miami has been featured enormously in movies and TV shows and it is one the most popular holiday spots in Florida. As a vacation spot, it offers many entertainments to suit everyone. For those visitors who would like to feel the beat and party, there is a trendy nightlife at South Beach including a fine beachfront dining experience from many different restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. For those who are looking for cultural experience, head to Little Havana for a more festive and eclectic mix of culture atmosphere. For the sunseekers, there’s the famous Miami Beach. For the shopaholics, go to Bayside Marketplace or Coconut Grove for a more personal attention from the boutique owners. If you’d a like a bit of history, visit the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. And if you are a photography enthusiast like me, enjoy the colourful Art Deco district for great colourful architecture photography.

We came here to board our Royal Caribbean Cruise. I arranged our travels of transits and accommodation so that we will have enough time to see the popular tourist spots that Miami has to offer.

Note: I didn’t include Little Havana below. I have a dedicated post for Little Havana.

South Beach
The sight of South Beach screams party – all day long. It is trendy and fun place to be. Everyone seems to be having a great time. It’s a place for the rich and famous and young at hearts. It is lined with 1930’s to 1940’s art-deco designed hotels, restaurants and spas.

Miami Beach
Miami Beach is what you’ve seen in the movies. The colourful iconic lifeguard stands are scattered along the shore. You can swim, surf and jet ski in the warm and crystal-clear Atlantic waters or just simply lie on the sand and work on your tan.
