Miami has always billed itself as a travel destination. Warm weather, sandy beaches and bright sunshine were selling points more than 100 years ago, just as they are today. But Miami's allure extends beyond its shores.
People from all over the Caribbean and Latin America have settled in Miami, giving the city its distinctive, lively international character.The warm-weather fun is still a big attraction, but the biggest draw is the cosmopolitan flavour coupled with all the great restaurants, sports teams (Dolphins, Heat, Hurricanes and Marlins) and upscale sheen. Plus a long list of TV shows that have "Miami" in their titles.
South Beach, with its cheerful, sherbert-coloured art-deco buildings and palm-tree-lined avenues, is the centre of Miami's trendy dining and nightlife scene. Other corners of Miami, including Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, offer their own versions of fine living and colourful happenings.
And don't overlook the natural world—though you may have to drive to the Everglades to get a good view of it.Miami boasts great weather year-round with sunny days and breezy nights. The hottest month is August when the average high temperature is 32C. The average low temperature in January, the coldest month, is 15C. The rainy season goes from June to September. The driest months are December, January and February. These months are particularly valued by locals, who consider them the best months of the year to visit Miami.
