    Miami, the Florida hotspot for dining and beachside hotels, is complete with an abundance of unique architecture, culture, and nightlife. “Magic City” has a plethora of different flavors, from African American, Bahamian, Cuban, Native American, and Spanish heritage woven in throughout its history. Also known as the “Cruise Capital of the World,” the subtropical climate and exotic beaches make Miami a popular embarkment, or destination itself, for tourists seeking a warm escape. Whether looking to get into nature and exploring Everglades National Park, in a playful mood and setting out to one of the championship golf courses or exciting casinos, or taking taste buds on a culinary adventure, Miami has a lot to offer.
