    About Miami

    Sunny Miami is not only a year–round seaside resort, favored by celebrities since the first half of the XX century, but also a key economic center of the United States, which plays an important role in international trade. The main tourist area of the city is Miami Beach, located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is here that beaches, hotels, entertainment, pedestrian promenades, restaurants and nightclubs are concentrated.

    Back in the 1980s and 90s, a vacation in Miami Beach was something unattainable for residents of other continents, but the situation has changed. Now any tourist can choose a suitable hotel and go to the magnificent beaches of Florida to sunbathe, enjoy evening walks along the “Miami Beach Boardwalk” and enjoy the unique atmosphere of Winwood and Little Havana.
