Miami-Vacation in Miami

Get the most out of your vacations to Miami.Miami and Miami Beach really are young. Just a little more than 100 years, Miami was mosquito infested swampland, with Indian trading post on the Miami River. The hotel builder Henry Flagger brought his railroad to the outpost known as Fort Dallas. Carl Fisher, Julia Tuttle, William Brickell, and John Sewell among them Hotels where erected, bridges were built, the port was dredged, and electricity arrived. The narrow strip of mangrove coast was transformed into Miami Beach. And then tourist started to come to the beautiful city of Miami. The city of Miami today offers an unparalleled multicultural experience: International cosines, Latin and Caribbean tongues and many cultural events thought the year. In Little Habana the art is full of the perfume of strong Cuban coffee. In Coconut Grove Caribbean steel drums ring out during the Miami/Bahamas Goombay Festival. Anytime in colorful Miami Beach restless crowds wait for entry to the hottest new clubs.

Not too many travelers know that Miami and Miami Beach are really separate cities. Miami on the mainland is South Florida’s commercial venue. Miami Beach, on 17 islands in Biscayne Bay, is sometimes considered America’s Riviera, luring refugees from winter with its warm sunshine; sandy beaches;greceful,shady palms; and tireless nightlife. In addition there is other well knownplaces in Miami such as, Coconut Grove and Bayside, the less reported spots, like the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami; and the mangrove swamps of Matheson Hammock Park, in Coral Gables, are great destinations that you cannot miss!
