Miami is one of the top vacation spots in South Florida. There are a lot of beaches, great weather, enough cultural entertainment and historical buildings. And there is also an active holiday, delicious food and nightlife. What else does a tourist want from their trip? Well, except that all this was a little closer and cheaper.
About 50 million people arrive here annually. This is a giant aviation hub and one of the fastest growing airports in the United States. Therefore, it is usually noisy here, there is a lot of fuss and there may be lines. Long lines!
Get ready for the fact that you will have to spend a little more time at the Miami airport than you would like. Local workers can be rather slow. And besides, you have to overcome great distances, because the airport building has an impressive scale.
But you will find here lots of shops and restaurants. And also free Wi-Fi, though with ads that can be turned off for money. If necessary, you can visit the yoga room at Miami Airport or take a shower in the business lounge for an additional fee.
The center of Miami is only 11 km from the airport. You can overcome them by car in the absence of traffic jams in about 15 minutes. And you can overcome them in the same 15 minutes, but by metro. And this is perhaps one of the best ways to get around.
To get to the metro, look for the free MIA Mover buses. Buy a ticket for $ 2.25 and use the metro map to build your route. From here you can get to virtually anywhere in the city.
If you plan to go directly to Miami Beach, a bus as a transfer is more suitable for you. Miami Beach Airport Express departs from the airport every 20 minutes. Tickets cost $ 2.25, just like the subway. A ticket can be purchased directly from the driver. Please note that buses also leave from the metro station, so the first thing you still have to use the MIA Mover.
Miami is not only the beach and the ocean. Although most tourists think so. No, beaches, of course, play a very important role in the popularity of the city. But there is also fantastic art deco architecture, an endless series of exhibitions and various shows. And separately it is necessary to note the rapidly developing culinary scene with a huge number of cool restaurants.
The main attraction of Miami is a somewhat surreal Italian villa in the Renaissance style, which is located in the middle of a coconut grove. All this together occupies 16 hectares. Time has definitely stopped here. Steeper place for a photo shoot can not be found throughout the city. The museum has a huge collection of European antiques. Also, various free classes are constantly held here, including yoga, jazz evenings and classes for children.
In the four buildings of the museum, a variety of exhibitions are held all year round for curious minds. Separately, the museum has a Gulf Stream aquarium with various species of inhabitants and a planetarium, where laser light shows are held every two weeks. The coolest thing here is the innovativeness of the museum, where you can play various interactive games, touch, move and study everything.
One of the most popular dishes in Miami is a fish burger. As in any coastal city, it is full of fresh seafood. But a fish burger can be found in local establishments most often. And it will definitely be an iconic taste without extra oil and with an ideal balance of spices.
Several Hispanic dishes settled in Miami, which have become incredibly popular here. One of them is called arepas: it’s like pita bread, stuffed with various products. One of the best combinations for the filling is tender pork, cheese and avocado.
By the way, the combination of pork with avocado is used in another popular dish, the homeland of which is Cuba (or maybe Colombia or Peru, as usual, no one can drag a blanket over himself). This combination on a plate is called churrasco. And in fact, this is a huge portion of delicious meat with mashed avocado. Very satisfying and better to share with loved ones.
