Things to do

When you can't resist cute animals.. and burgers?

Even cute animals can't resist Downtown Miami! Zoo Miami is home to 2000 gorgeous creatures and plenty of interactive exhibits.

Confessions of a Miami shopaholic

Give in to temptation and hit Dadeland Mall for some epic shopping—they even have a dedicated fashion wing. If you're feeling adventurous, book a tour that allows you to hop on and off and explore on foot. Otherwise, you can enjoy a seaplane tour as you soar high above the city and marvel at its splendor (keep an eye out for the dolphins, too!). Downtown Miami is also home to iconic nightclubs, including many where live music is the main event. Festivals are held year-round in this lively city, celebrating everything from ballet and fashion to film and car racing.


Sunscreen plus rain jacket equals all you need

Miami weather is dominated in part by the Atlantic hurricane season, officially from June 1 to November 30, so it's not unusual for the area to be hit by big storms and downpours. Otherwise, the weather in Downtown Miami is famously beautiful. Highs in January typically reach between 75 and 80 degrees. Temperatures span between the mid-80s and low 90s from May through October. It's a humid area characterized by occasional thunderstorms. Even in the rain, you'll feel warm because it's so muggy. Sunscreen and a light rain jacket are your best friends.

Find wild, wild wildlife at Miami's best beaches

Facing Biscayne Bay in the east, Downtown Miami is located in the central business district. To its west and south is the Miami River.

The golden sands of Bal Harbour Beach are about half an hour away, while Oleta River State Park is an exceptional patch of land that's home to mangrove reserves, sandy beaches, and exquisite wildlife.
