Are you ready for some fun under the sun? Miami Beach is a popular tourist attraction in Florida, and for good reason! The crown attraction of the city is South Beach, nicknamed America's Riviera. This vast beach features soft white sand and an extensive range of activities to enjoy, from pampering yourself at a spa to spending the whole day window-shopping at the local shopping venues. Soak up some history with your sun at the Ancient Spanish Monastery, a unique architectural site preserved for over 800 years. The local Miami Children's Museum is a great spot to give little ones' sunburned skin a break.

Miami Beach is much more than just a place to get seafood. The local Cuban food scene is bustling with activities, like at the local favorite Las Olas Café. Another option is Joe's Stone Crab, home to some of the best crab dishes around.

Most transport options depart from Miami Beach's big sister, Miami, including from the Miami International Airport. However, FlixBus US and Jet Set Express offer direct bus service to Miami Beach so that you can get your toes in the sand faster.

Tours also offer unique opportunities like dolphin watching, snorkeling, and much more. For the best beach around, head toward the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, where you can sunbathe and fish with ease. The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is a magical spot to learn more about different butterfly variations.
