A popular road trip destination, and rightfully so, is Miami, Florida. This seaport city on the southern side of Florida is a relaxed destination, where you can enjoy the sun the city is blessed with year round. It boasts white sandy, picturesque coastlines and beaches everywhere near waters in which you can splash around for hours. Cruise around town to places with delicious dinners, see the Miami sunset from romantic spots, and enjoy nights to explore Miami’s famous nightlife.
One of the main reasons Miami is such a popular destination are its many sunshine hours this city gets. Thanks to its coastal location, there are many beaches on which you can get your tan perfected, build sandcastles with (or without) the kids, and have fun with all kinds of water sports. What better way to get your vacation vibes on than with scuba diving, jet skiing, snorkeling, or windsurfing?
Shopping is also one of the most popular things to do amongst tourists. There are many malls with stores abound around Miami. Besides the well-known brands, there are also quite a few boutiques, where you can find unique items. In these malls, you can often find a wide selection of ethnic restaurants. This is also one of the fun things about Miami: the great diversity amongst both its citizens and visitors. People from all walks of life with different backgrounds and traditions wander around this city every day.
Overall, Miami is more than just sunny white beaches. It has a great arts and culture scene, which you can enjoy both day and night. The arts are best represented in the Wynwood Walls. These walls cover about 80,000 square feet of canvas filled by street artists and graffiti experts with gorgeous images. You can also see art indoors in the Perez Art Museum or go into a completely different direction and visit the Miami Children’s Museum, in which kids can have the time of their life. In Miami, you can find enough to do for every member of the family.
Just outside of Miami, you can find the famous Everglades. With your rental car, you can find yourself in the home of many rare species and the vibrant surroundings of the Everglades within no time. However, we do not recommend going swimming here since the waters are infested with crocodiles. In the Everglades, you can see a whole other side of the sunshine state.
