Travel plans may be on ice for many of us, but there’s nothing wrong with daydreaming about exotic destinations or conjuring up plans for the next escape. If you’re looking to get away, and you’re searching for an enigmatic destination, which offers an action-packed city break with the opportunity to chill out and kick back too, have you thought about adding Miami to your shortlist? If you like the sound of sun, sea, sand and sightseeing, here are some fantastic reasons to visit the Magic City.
Miami is famous for its beautiful beaches and achingly hip seaside neighborhoods. The outdoor lifestyle is enviable, and there’s a host of activities on offer for those who are ready to take a break from soaking up the rays. In Miami, you can try your hand at water sports, you can take a boat out for a day on the water or you can follow in the footsteps of many a famous TV character and whizz along the tree-lined boulevards and promenades on rollerblades or a skateboard. The streets that surround the golden swathes of sand come alive as the sun sets, and you can easily go from beach to bar. South Beach is known for its glamor, attracting celebrities on a regular basis, while Ocean Drive is the ideal spot to combine sunbathing and swimming with seeing the sights.
Wellness is part and parcel of life in Miami for many residents, and you can’t help be seduced by healthy living when you touch down in the city and see people out jogging in the sun-drenched parks, sipping on tropical-looking smoothies and sporting a healthy glow. If you fancy getting involved, you can sign up for fitness classes, running clubs and outdoor activities or look into treatments and therapies like IV hydration or skin rejuvenation. If you’re jet-lagged, you’re exhausted, you’ve been partying a little too hard in the glitzy bars and clubs, or you’re keen to kick-start a new, healthier lifestyle, there’s no better place to be.
One of the most captivating things about Miami is its magnificent, quirky architecture. Take the time to amble through the iconic Art Deco District, and you’ll be blown away by the colors, shapes and design concepts. It’s worth visiting during the day to see the buildings glimmer in the sunlight and taking a tour by night, when the neon lights illuminate the street, creating a totally different aesthetic.
Miami is a great destination for travelers of all ages, and it has plenty to offer in terms of attractions and days out. The most popular destinations include Zoo Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and Dolphin Mall. Wynwood is a must for fans of modern art and graffiti and the Bayside Marketplace is a great spot to grab a bite to eat with a view.
Many of us are thinking about where we’re going to travel when restrictions are lifted and the world is our oyster once more. If you’re looking for a unique city break destination, why not take a trip to the Magic City?
