Miami is a thrilling city that combines pulsing nightlife with gorgeous weather, and stunning vintage architecture with up-to-the-minute restaurants and bars. The hub of the Florida city is the sandbar known as Miami Beach, an area compact enough to explore without a car. Other must-see spots include the Mediterranean-inspired fantasy city Coral Gables, with its ochre-colored Spanish-style buildings; the commercial hub of Latin-flavored downtown Miami; and the newly hip Biscayne Corridor, where local trendsetters are setting up avant-garde art galleries and inventive restaurants in mid-century buildings.
