Miami

How Miami became known as 'The Magic City' is unclear; why it took on that moniker is not. As the gateway to Latin America there is an almost tangible vibrancy and colour that will draw you to this waterborne city, its beaches and port. Spend your days mooching harbourside at Bayside open air marketplace; enjoy upscale shopping at Bal Harbour; rent a bike and ride the Atlantic shoreline on the sands of Miami Beach; lunch on South Beach in the celeb-haunted 'News Cafe' or stroll Lincoln Road with its ten blocks of museums, art galleries and boutiques.

Then get ready for the night life. Miami after dark is for people-watching on Ocean Drive; sipping cocktails in too-cool Coconut Grove or clubbing the night away on South Beach. Take in the Little Havana neighbourhood for the sights, sounds and smells of Cuba. "The rhythm is going to get you" sang Gloria Estefan, and she's as good as her word at her Ocean Drive eaterie Larios. Check out the Vaca Frita Cuban-style steaks and your fellow diners.

If the kids tire of the beach they'll love SeaAquarium and Parrot Jungle and sports lovers are spoiled for choice with major league baseball, basketball, American football, soccer and hockey. The array of championship golf is mind boggling and every water sport imaginable is right here.

"If Miami hasn't got it, they haven't invented it yet."
'Sonny Crockett', Miami Vice
