Art deco buildings, miles of sandy white beaches and plenty to do, Miami is a year-round summer vacation destination for singles, couples and families. While the city has its fair share of museum exhibits and cultural locations (don't miss the Ancient Spanish Monastery), it's the beach scene, nightlife, exotic cuisine and modern hotels that are the real attractions. Steamy South Beach is quickly becoming the place to see and be seen at one of the many haute couture shops, eclectic restaurants or trendy bars. For family vacationers, get the kids to the Miami Seaquarium and Jungle Island, featuring lush gardens with animal shows and exhibits. Adults will like the plentiful golf courses, live jazz and tropical music, and chic nightclubs where everyone is dressed to impress. Miami is a top dining destination, and their unique "New World" cuisine blends local, Cuban, Latin American and international flavors. This is the city to try out a boutique hotel. At South Beach is chock-a-block with the trendiest of options. Venture out a few minutes from town to the Everglades for alligator spotting or Biscayne National Park for snorkeling among coral reefs.
