Miami Beach


There is an undeniable Latino influence in Miami that is especially apparent in the food (here, Cuban coffee is simply “coffee”), but a growing number of internationally renowned chefs are starting to make their mark on this city with the openings of marquee establishments. And don’t forget the local seafood: from snapper to stone crab, Miami Beach restaurants serve up some of the freshest fish from the sea.

South Beach is not just fun and sun; there is a rich Miami arts and culture scene here as well. This is, after all, home to one of the premier art events in the world: Art Basel. But aside from that yearly art extravaganza, Miami Beach is also home to numerous galleries, film festivals, dance performances, theatre, music and more. Most importantly, don’t leave without catching a live Cuban music performance—start practicing your salsa moves now!

Arts & Culture Around Town

You don’t have to go far to see one of Miami Beach’s most famous landmarks: Winter Haven is part of the Art Deco District, a historic South Beach neighborhood protected by the National Register of Historic Places. Miami Beach is home to a number of historical gems, including a 12th Randolph Hearst painstakingly transported from Spain, and the stunning Holocaust Memorial gardens and sculpture on Meridian Avenue.
