Welcome to Greater Miami and the Beaches!

Miami – home to The University of Miami – is a dazzling tropical cosmopolitan destination and one of the most exciting cities in the world.

Year-round sunny weather, pristine white beaches, elegant hotels, designer shopping, gourmet dining and a year-round calendar of exciting festivals and events attract visitors from around the world.  Known as the Cruise Capital of the World, our vibrant community offers a dynamic cultural scene. Miami’s large Latin American and international population add flair to the city’s food, fashion and music.

The arts are alive in Miami. Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Miami and Arteaméricas welcome galleries and collectors from around the world. Opera, ballet, symphony concerts and Broadway shows have a fabulous new home at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

Beautifully restored venues like Olympia Theater at Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, and the Lincoln and Colony theaters on Miami Beach offer cutting-edge dance, music and performance pieces. Distinctive gallery districts, world-class museums and an array of annual dance, film and music festivals make Miami a one-of-a-kind tropical metropolis.

 Sports fans will appreciate Miami’s major league teams, which include football, baseball and basketball. And of course, year-round sunny weather makes Miami a terrific place for outdoor activities, such as water sports, golf, tennis, and our many outdoor sporting events and festivals.

Miami boasts two national parks: Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park. Fishing, camping, boating and nature walks are popular activities for park visitors. We hope you will find time to explore and enjoy the spectacular natural beauty Miami offers. From a variety of wildlife such as dolphins, alligators and rare birds to the extraordinary Everglades’ River of Grass, Miami’s “wild side” is a nature-lover’s paradise.
