Whether you are trav­el­ing for work or play, there is al­ways some­thing new to see, do, taste, and ex­pe­ri­ence in this trendy South Florida hot spot. From the grow­ing Wyn­wood and De­sign dis­tricts to the see and be seen al­lure of South Beach; the neigh­bor­hoods of Mi­ami each pro­vide some­thing en­tirely unique to the lo­cals and tourists — a record 15.8 mil­lion overnight vis­i­tors were wel­comed by Mi­ami-Dade County last year, so per­haps 2017 is the year to add Mi­ami to your travel sched­ules. With warm weather year-round, spring is a prime time to visit be­fore the siz­zling sum­mer tem­per­a­tures make an ap­pear­ance. How­ever, if you don’t visit un­til the sum­mer months, it is still pos­si­ble to avoid the heat by en­joy­ing the area’s pool­side ca­banas, fine din­ing and a grow­ing num­ber of cul­tural of­fer­ings. Plus, you can get more for your buck dur­ing these months with ex­tra happy hours through­out Mi­ami and South Florida, and money-sav­ing events like Mi­ami Spa Month (July and Au­gust) and Mi­ami Spice (Au­gust and Septem­ber) when restau­rants of­fer three-course meals fea­tur­ing sig­na­ture dishes cre­ated by world-renowned chefs at re­duced prices.

For those pre­par­ing a visit to Mi­ami, we wanted to pro­vide the ba­sic es­sen­tials for plan­ning your ul­ti­mate get­away, and fo­cus on the din­ing, shop­ping and other cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in Mi­ami, Mi­ami Beach and sev­eral of the sur­round­ing ar­eas in South Florida.
