Miami

Miami is known for its glamour and cosmopolitan vibe, but what truly sets this city apart is its miles of sandy beaches, which coupled with year-round sunshine and pleasant warmth have cemented Miami's position as a top travel destination. Describing it merely as an international metropolis would be a gross understatement, given its North American core infused with Caribbean flair, a generous dose of Latin American influence, a hint of African heritage, a touch of Asian influence, and a sprinkle of European charm. All these elements and their fascinating blend give Miami a vibrant and exhilarating cultural life.

Frequently Asked Questions about Miami (FAQs)

- What is the best time to visit Miami? As Miami has a long and beautiful season of summer all year long, deciding on when to visit Miami mainly depends on what you are looking for and what you expect: while spring is ideal for enjoying outdoor activities and venues, the summer gets quite hot and somewhat deserted – keep in mind that these seasons have the highest threat of hurricanes. During the fall, Miami comes to life again with its many events, such as the Miami Art Week, while the winter attracts most visitors with its ever-lasting sunshine and many events and adventures that are yet to come. - Is Miami safe? Overall, Miami is a safe city for tourists. However, like most U.S. large cities, Miami does have a few safety issues, especially regarding drugs, gangs, and crime. But visitors shouldn’t worry about that since the most dangerous areas, such as Overtown, Model City, Downtown, Little Haiti, and Allapattah are not ordinarily on tourists’ itineraries. Pickpocketing can be an issue, so do not look too vulnerable and always use common sense when exploring the city. - Is Miami worth a visit? Yes, definitely! Miami is worth a visit not only for its year-round pleasantly warm weather, pristine beaches, and energetic nightlife but also for its astonishingly rich cultural life. - Does Miami get hurricanes? Yes. Southeast Florida, where Miami is situated along with West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, is very susceptible to hurricanes. Hurricane season in Florida usually occurs between August through late October.
