At the southeastern tip of Florida, the famous Miami is a great seductress, cosmopolitan, artistic, festive, benevolent, permissive and voluptuous. It is both a financial and cultural centre, at the forefront of contemporary art and design, and a city of leisure and entertainment, fashion and pleasure. From the airport corridor, the tone is set with the presentation of works of art. The city is full of art galleries, art museums (MoCA, Bass Museum of Art), remarkable design hotels and a programme of prestigious dance shows or concerts. A few hours by boat from the Bahamas, Miami is already a little bit like the Caribbean, whose influence can be seen in Little Havana. But the spectacular is Miami Beach with its marinas and luxury skyscrapers, Art Deco buildings, white sandy beaches and trendy nightclubs. For shopping in the direction of Coconut Grove iy Bayside, a huge shopping centre on the water with luxurious shops. South Beach (SoBe) and Ocean Drive live 24 hours a day, with their lively cafés all day long and their clubs where people celebrate until the end of the night. And if you want to escape the city, two iconic national parks are nearby: Biscayne National Park, accessible by boat, and Everglades Park. Even children benefit from it with the Miami Children's Museum, Monkey Jungle and Jungle Island, Miami Seaquarium and Miami Metrozoo. There is so much to do and so much to see that your tourist guide will be very useful to you!
