Miami's legendary beaches, sunshine, Art Deco architecture and individual design hotels attract tourists throughout the year. Food-lovers are fascinated by the city's unique cuisine that combines flavours from North and South America and the Caribbean. There are over 6,000 restaurants to choose from and many of the restaurants turn into clubs once night falls. Miami, especially South Beach and the trendy Miami Design District, is known for having the hottest nightlife in the United States.
There is no risk of getting bored on the beaches of Miami; there is always an alternative to sunbathing, with choices ranging from surfboarding and scuba-diving to beauty treatments and shopping in the luxury boutiques on Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road. In addition to the turquoise blue ocean, you can also enjoy an unforgettable swim amidst waterfalls at the Venetian Pool built using coral rock in the 1920s. Families favour the Jungle Island tropical zoo and the Miami Seaquarium.
