Known as the “Gate­way to Latin Amer­ica and the Caribbean,” Mi­ami siz­zles to a trop­i­cal beat. The jewel of Florida’s south­east­ern coast, Mi­ami is one of Amer­ica’s most col­or­ful and cos­mopoli­tan cities.

Two of the area’s most in­ter­est­ing eth­nic neigh­bor­hoods are Lit­tle Ha­vana and Lit­tle Haiti. Lit­tle Ha­vana has a num­ber of au­then­tic Cuban restau­rants and hosts Calle Ocho, one of the world’s largest block par­ties, ev­ery March.

Trendy South Beach at­tracts celebri­ties and tourists alike. At Lin­coln Road Mall, a pop­u­lar pedes­trian area, you can choose from a wide va­ri­ety of shops and restau­rants, rang­ing from mod­er­ately priced to up­scale. Speak­ing of up­scale, Bal Har­bour Shops boast shop­ping and din­ing that has been fa­vor­ably com­pared to Fifth Av­enue, Rodeo Drive and the Châmps-Elysées.

Also of in­ter­est is the Wolf­so­nian-FIU mu­seum, which con­tains a col­lec­tion of more than 120,000 works of art, rare books, posters, World War II mem­o­ra­bilia and other cul­tural me­men­tos.
