Downtown Miami

The skyscrapers of Miami's financial district are intertwined with entertainment destinations such as the American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat. A short walk down from the arena stands the Freedom Tower, known as the "Ellis Island of the South” for its pivotal role in processing Cuban exiles in the aftermath of the Cuban Revolution. The building is now home to the Museum of Art and Design at Miami Dade College, one of a handful of notable museums in an area that also includes the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and HistoryMiami.

Little Havana

Miami’s Cuban exile community has thrived in this neighborhood for the past six decades. Named after the capital of the island nation, Little Havana is packed with Cuban restaurants such as Versailles and La Carreta, both with ventanitas where guests can sit in or take their pastelitos and croquetasto go. A stroll down the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare, Calle Ocho (8th Street), takes guests to Domino Park, where retirees play dominoes before onlookers. Along the way, the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame spotlights Latin performers of distinction. Venues such as the Ball & Chain and Hoy Como Ayer host live Latin bands throughout the week and dancing goes into the late-night hours.

North Beach

For a stay on Miami Beach away from the bustle of South Beach nightlife, head to North Beach. Here, you'll find the postcard-ready beach views for which Miami Beach is famous in a slower-paced environment. Watch lilac dusk skies meet the teal ocean at North Shore Open Space Park, dine on oysters and conch at Shuckers Waterfront Grill or grab a cold one at The New Hotel's Blue Beer Garden before catching a show at the North Beach Bandshell, an open-air amphitheater listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

South Beach

Miami’s longstanding reputation as a global party capital largely stems from the nightlife options on South Beach. Collins Avenue is home to world-famous nightclubs including LIV, Story and Wall — all of which frequently host the biggest names in EDM and hip-hop music. The party continues during the daytime when South Beach bars serve mimosas and over-sized cocktails just a block away from the ocean. The Miami Beach district is also a haven for foodies, with diverse options including the famed Joe’s Stone Crab on Washington Avenue, the upscale vegetarian restaurant Planta and Top Chef winner Jeremy Ford’s Stubborn Seed.

Wynwood

A decade ago, Wynwood was an unassuming working-class neighborhood with countless warehouses. Drawn by cheap rent and storage costs, local artists began moving into the neighborhood and gradually transformed its character through street art, graffiti and murals. Today, Wynwood's technicolor sights and galleries draw tourists to the neighborhood's hipster bars, restaurants and craft breweries.
