Miami is known as the Magic City, and with good reason. Even in the sunshine state of Florida, a realm not short on glittering destinations, Miami stands apart. It's home to long runs of Florida's trademark sandy beaches, and over the decades it's forged a reputation for easy-going vibes, sun-bronzed beautiful people, and wild nightlife that draws in celebrities and mere mortals alike. A trip down the esplanades of handsome Ocean Drive reveals a medley of Art Deco wonders and gilded villas from the 1950s. The rest of Miami Beach is also a gem, beckoning out across Biscayne Bay with a coastline lapped by turquoise waters. Meanwhile, the Design District is an aesthetically rich area with its quirky galleries. Meal times mean Tex-Mex and spicy Cuban foods in Little Havana, and the evenings are all neon-lit nightclubs where A-listers cavort till sunrise.
Miami holiday rentals and Miami holiday villas offer something that a classic hotel stay simply never could: the chance to live like a real native of the Magic City. You might find yourself with a sprawling family home with a relaxing pool in the garden and plenty of space for the whole crew. Or, you might choose to bag a swish seaside condo on South Beach, just a stone’s throw from the pulsing clubs and white sands. Either way, with perks like a lounge, kitchen and terrace, you'll have all the comforts of someone who actually lives here, and fantasise that you’ve moved to this blissful part of Florida.
Miami packs in a myriad of awesome things to do and see. There are the seaside walks of Miami Beach, where the powdery sands give way to classy Ocean Drive and its array of retro diners, mojito-sloshing bars, and palm-shaded Art Deco mansions. Over on the mainland are museums aplenty, which means you can delve into the grand Italianesque rooms of the Vizcaya mansion, or encountering the mind-boggling modern works of the Perez Museum. Meanwhile, plumes of cigar smoke and rhumba rhythms await in Little Havana, and you'll get the chance to wander the bobbing boat harbours and leafy streets of Coconut Grove.
Most holiday rentals in Miami will be well connected to the main sights and strips by the extensive network of bus and light rail that crosses the metropolis. One of the most important public services to get to grips with is the Metrorail, which links Miami International with all the major attractions. If in doubt, you can always ride the buses to one of the stations along that line and hop to where you need to go. Hiring a car can help speed things along, especially if you're planning on travelling outside of the downtown area, or have booked holiday villas in Miami that are quite a distance from the coast.
