Miami USA

Situated on Florida’s south-east coastline, Miami is one of the United States’ most established cultural hotspots. Renowned for its white-sand beaches, art deco establishments and thriving Cuban district, the city combines both US and Latin influence to offer a truly unique American experience.

Once home to the Tequesta tribe, Miami’s colonial years saw the region shift between both British and Spanish governance before modern Miami was founded in 1896. Then known as ‘Biscayne Bay Country’, the city’s founder, a citrus grower by the name of Julia Tuttle welcomed foreign immigration, leading to Miami’s large Cuban and Caribbean diaspora that has shaped much of the city’s modern culture and lifestyle.

If you’re going to do one thing while in Miami, make sure you visit South Beach – an area home to beautiful restaurants and art deco buildings. All your shopping needs are covered at the Aventura Mall, Design district, Bayside MarketPlace and Wynwood, while you’ll find world-renowned super clubs in Downtown Miami. For history, visit the Vizcaya Museum and for nature, take a day-tour to Florida’s Everglades National Park.

While Miami provides all the traditional American food staples, some of its best can be found in the Cuban district, where you’ll find bars serving ice-cold margaritas and seafood restaurants like the famous La Camaronera. The search for Miami's best key lime pie is ongoing, but nobody makes it fresher than Joe’s Stone Crab, located in Miami Beach.
