Are you planning a getaway? Spend some time getting to know Miami, FL.

Magic City has so much to explore. Whether you are looking to circle the turquoise waters going breakneck speeds on a jet ski, watch a pro football game at Hard Rock Stadium, or even head indoors for the day at the Miami Seaquarium — here’s your guide to a few days in Miami that will have you screaming dalé.

Why go?

  • Miami is well known for its nightlife scene. The Magic City has over 85 fun venues + spots to go out. Run, don’t walk to Basement, LIV, E11EVEN, and Space for a top-notch, non-stop, and often celebrity-studded club outing.
  • It’s also the hometown of Sidney Poitier, Enrique Iglesias, DJ Khaled, and Gloria Estefan. And you can see the homes of some of these icons by taking a trip around Star Island.
  • The largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the US is in Miami, with over 800 retro-looking buildings.
  • It’s great for travelers looking to take a swing at the links at the PGA National Championship Course.
  • Do we even have to mention the pristine beaches? Take a couple of steps on the bustling and eclectic sands of Miami Beach.
