With mile upon mile of sun and sand, Miami is a scenic beach destination that attracts travelers from around the globe. It is home to Latin American big business, a bustling port and beautiful Art Deco buildings. Enjoy its exciting nightlife, Cuban sights and sounds in Little Havana, and the thrill of shopping along the iconic Miracle Mile.


Everglades National Park

Home to a seemingly endless labyrinth of subtropical wetlands, Everglades National Park shelters a peculiar ecosystem within its enormous expanse. Stretches of the park's lush swampland feature a network of mangroves and robust breeding ground and habitat for an array of wading birds and varied wildlife. Its dark, tropical depths are shrouded in grassy rivers and dense marshes that are home to the famed American alligator, West Indian manatee, hundreds of aviary species, and the elusive Florida Panther. Tropical hardwood hammocks form ideal shelters for the reptiles, while wet prairies with their brackish water support the growth of succulent plants like glassworts. While modern concerns like global warming and surging sea levels loom as considerable threats to the park's fragile ecosystem, the Everglades continues to be a constant source of beauty and wonder for all who visit.

South Beach

Welcome to everybody's favorite spot in Miami. South Beach refers to the locale, as well as the beach itself. Historically, this was the first neighborhood on Miami Beach to be comprehensively urbanized during the early periods of the 20th Century, which was when a vast majority of its magnificent art-deco masterpieces that you can see today had been built. The commune really upped its game in terms of prominence during World War II, when Miami Beach had been chosen as an influential hub for the United States Air Force. Today the South Beach is viewed by the world as a premier tropical destination for vacationers with its pristine golden-sand beaches, swanky waterside resorts and vibrant nightlife. The Lummus Park, Miami Beach Golf Club, and the iconic Ocean Drive are some of South Beach's unmissable sights.
