More on Miami from AOL Travel
A Miami vacation is all about fun. This international city on the southeast Atlantic coast of Florida is enjoying a retro revival of sorts, and not that of its Don Johnson/”Miami Vice” days. After major renovations at the Fountainbleu and Eden Roc hotels a few years ago, there’s new love for Miami’s “Magic City” heyday in the 1950s, when it was a denizen for the wealthy, the Rat Pack and the mob, who lived large at those Miami Beach resorts before the area fell on hard times. South Beach, famous for its Art Deco architecture, cleaned itself up first in the late 1980s. Trendy boutique hotels, restaurants and rooftop nightclubs started opening, and it has since remained a popular party spot. Even in its slow years, the area never lacked upscale shopping malls. At the top of any Miami itinerary is its famous Cuban heritage; visit Little Havana for music, cuisine and culture from the nearby Caribbean island. Art and food are big business in Miami too. Try to visit during one of the city’s many annual festivals, including the Food Network’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival and Art Basel Miami. There are plenty of Miami family attractions too, besides the beach, including the Zoo, Seaquarium, Museum of Science, Parrot Jungle Island, and Vizcaya, a historic mansion and estate. For those who want to see what the area was like before developers settled in, take a day trip to the swamps of Everglades National Park and try to spot crocodiles and the Florida panther. It’s a jungle out there.
