Miami, Florida is one of the largest cities in the United States, mainly due to its large metropolitan area. Located in southern Florida, Miami is known for its beaches, nightlife and Latin community as well as being one of the most popular spring break destinations anywhere.
If, for some reason, the beach isn’t on the day’s list of things to do, the Frost Art and Lowe Art Museums are great galleries featuring a wide variety of art from a range of time periods.
Visitors can attend one of the city’s sporting events and watch the professional basketball team the Miami Heat, the professional football team the Miami Dolphins, or any the University of Miami Hurricanes sporting events.
