Miami

Known as 'the Magic City', with it seemingly having appeared from nowhere, Miami's meteoric rise dates back to the turn of the century. It's growth and success, achieved against the odds at times, has culminated in the modern, vibrant and glamorous city that we see today. Miami is located towards the south-eastern tip of Florida, facing the Atlantic Ocean to the east and backed by the Florida Everglades to the west. The city has been a centre for immigration with Jewish hotel developers and the large Latin- American and Cuban populations having influenced Miami's modern, sophisticated character, driven by its contemporary arts and a newly established cultural renaissance. The city and its dynamic and eclectic neighbourhoods, Downtown, Wynwood, Little Haiti and the Design District amongst them, is worthy of more than a cursory glance, but the principal attractions are its beaches, Miami Beach and South Beach in particular. Both sit offshore from the city on what is effectively an island, separated from the mainland by the intra-coastal waterway (Stranahan River) and Biscayne Bay and fronted by Collins Avenue which runs along its entire length. Central Miami Beach stretches from 78th Street in the north to 21st Street in the south. An elevated walkway faces the beach extending south from 48th Street to 21st Street. It is popular with skaters and joggers and is overlooked by Miami's classic hotels and resorts. Further south, just off Washington Avenue, lies the art-deco dominated South Beach district. Palm tree lined Lummus Park, which faces the beach, and the area between Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive lie at the heart of things here with art-deco hotels, stylish restaurants and chic nightspots lining the streets. To the north of Miami lies the resort town of Fort Lauderdale. Once the favoured hang out for exuberant and libatious spring break college students, a greater element of sobriety and maturity is in evidence these days, although outdoor restaurants, boutiques and watering holes exist in abundance for those in search of the same. The main attraction is the Fort Lauderdale coast, with its port and its beach areas in particular amongst Florida's finest, set amongst a series of almost Venice-like inland waterways and channels with Las Olas Boulevard its umbilical chord. Over on Florida's west coast, the Gulf of Mexico influence kicks in with the Tampa Bay area at the centre of it all. Sarasota, Clearwater Beach and St Pete Beach all lie within its periphery and along with the nearby Barrier, Sanibel and Captiva Islands they account for the region's main tourist destinations, hotels and resorts, all of which offer a viable and rewarding alternative to their east coast rivals.
