Incorporated in 1915, Miami Beach has been one of America's top beach resort tourist destinations since the beginning of the 20th century. Separated from the city of Miami by the Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach is located on a variety of man-made and natural barrier islands.
With one of its biggest attractions being the Art Deco Historic District, which is the world's largest Art Deco architecture collection in the world, Miami Beach, FL continues to serve as one of the top cultural and entertainment destinations in the US. In addition to this, Miami Beach is also renowned for their designer fashions and nightclubs.
When to visit
With comfortable beach-going weather year round, Miami Beach stays fairly busy all year. However, if you're looking for the best time to visit, it really depends on your preferences.
Miami Beach, FL is the busiest from January to April, when temperatures average around 70°F (21°C). Unlike the normally off-putting crowds of many popular destinations, Miami Beach buzzes with excitement as visitors and locals alike enjoy events and parties one after another.
If you're looking for comfort, May and October through December offers the best weather and events. While it's a bit warmer than Miami's peak travel season, it is perfect for enjoying the water and enjoying some of Miami Beach's top events, such as the Art Basel, Book Fair International and the Broadway Series show season.
With Miami Beach having a tropical monsoon climate, summers are hot and humid with winters that are warm and dry. Known for having the warmest winter weather in the US, it is little surprise that Miami Beach is also known for having the warmest ocean surf as well. From May through September is when Miami Beach has its tropical rainy season, complete with obsessive humidity, and regular showers and thunderstorms. However, from November to April is the dry season, characterized by low humidity levels, sunshine and very few showers. Between June and November is when tropical storms and hurricanes are the worst, so it's best to be careful when traveling during these months.
While Miami Beach caters to the crowd with money, some of the best things to do are completely free. Overall, the best truly free activity is enjoying the beach. In addition to this, the Holocaust Memorial, Lincoln Road, private tours, and fishing charters and tours are also a favorite activity.
However, if you have the money to blow, the Lincoln Road Mall and Delano's Aqua Spa are top-rated favorites. For the artsy types, the Bass Museum of Art, Britto Central and Art Deco Historic District offer a wide array of tantalizing pieces to check out.
Aside from the amazing club and dining scene, Miami Beach is also home to several landmarks and some of the most famous sandy beaches in Florida. Top-rated is the Art Deco Historic District that is home to hundreds of retail spaces, apartment buildings, hotels and other structures built between 1923 and 1943 in this unique style. In addition to this, there is also:
• Holocaust Memorial
• Vizcaya Museum
• Freedom Tower
• Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum of Science
• Miami Children's Museum
• Jewish Museum of Florida
• World Erotic Art Museum
• Coral Castle Museum
• Museum of Contemporary Art
Tips & Recommendations
• For the cost-conscious family trips, North Miami Beach is where you'll want to spend the majority of your time. It is also the best place to find kid-friendly beaches, affordable hotels and restaurants, and some of the most interesting Art Deco architecture.
• Remember that different beaches cater to different crowds. For example, Haulover Park is a 'clothing optional' beach. It's best to survey the area and find the sand that best suits your style.
• If you're trying to save money, it's important to remember that weekdays are cheaper for hotel rates. You can also save on cover charges by getting the 'early bird special' or arriving before they start charging cover.
• For the best eats, you should be sure and attend the South Beach Food & Wine Festival. While South Beach has some moderately priced eateries, the side streets are where you'll find the most affordable options.
