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.

Taste of Miami
Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant has been a Miami favorite since 1915. Stop by their location in South Beach for a treat of fresh, tender crab claws in signature mustard mayonnaise. Joe’s also serves some of the best Key lime pie in Florida.
