Explore This Exciting City!

Miami is a beautiful city with tons of local attractions, an especially vibrant nightlife, and a surprisingly diverse set of cuisines. To fully take advantage of this wonderful city, here are our top recommendations for you.

Dining

Miami offers some of the best Cuban and Peruvian food in the US, as well as fresh, delicious seafood!  With diverse food options across the city, here are some staples you have to try!  Vegans and vegetarians, scroll down for our top picks of Miami’s many vegan restaurants!

Vaca Frita

Literally translated as "fried cow," vaca frita is a Cuban specialty that features "beef shredded and marinated in lime and then cooked until it’s crispy. It is often served with a mountain of sautéed onions and wedge of lime so you can squeeze it on top to taste, and usually with rice and beans."

Shopping

Miami has everything you need to shop 'till you drop.  For a look into luxury (and possible celebrity spotting), make sure to visit Bal Harbour Shops.  If you find yourself near Miami Beach, peruse around indoor and outdoor shopping at Lincoln Road Mall.  For the more artsy folks, there's the beautiful Miami Design District, full of shops and visual spectacles to pique your interest.

Nightlife

If dancing is your forté, Miami is certainly the place for you.  Check out some of the iconic clubs, such as Club Space, Basement, and E11even.  For some possible celebrity spotting, check out Miami's most famous club, LIV Miami.

If live music is more your scene, Miami has plenty of options.  The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater is one of Miami's hottest music venues.  If you're looking for a more laid-back music atmosphere, The Wynwood Yard hosts a variety of genres, with food trucks to boot!  If you want to rock out in a smaller venue, Las Rosas is your destination.
