About Miami

Sunny Miami is not only a year-round seaside resort, favoured by celebrities since the first half of the 20th century, but also a key economic centre of the USA, which plays an important role in international trade. The main tourist area of the city is Miami Beach, located on the Atlantic Ocean coast. It is here that beaches, hotels, entertainment, pedestrian promenades, restaurants and nightclubs are concentrated.

Back in the 1980-90s, holidays in Miami Beach were something unattainable for residents of other continents, but the situation has changed. Now any tourist can find a suitable hotel and head to the magnificent beaches of Florida to sunbathe, enjoy evening strolls along the “Miami Beach Boardwalk” and enjoy the unique atmosphere of Wynwood and Little Havana.

In the 1950s, Wynwood was a depressed suburb built up with small factories and auto repair shops, populated predominantly by Puerto Ricans. The transformation only began in 2005, when the city decided to “gentrify” Wynwood, i.e. to completely redevelop it. The best graffiti artists from all over the world painted the walls of warehouses and workshops, which transformed the neighbourhood and made it a destination for bohemians, artists and tourists.

The Design District is a unique and creative place where designers, artists and other art people gather. There are numerous shops and warehouses with ultra-trendy avant-garde furniture, accessories, unusual sculptures and interior items. There are also many showrooms with exclusive clothing brands in the neighbourhood. Every second Saturday of the month there is a Design and Art Night.

Little Havana

A neighbourhood in Miami, home to Cuban immigrants who fled the country after Fidel Castro came to power. The former residents of Liberty Island have long since assimilated and turned into ordinary Americans, but the neighbourhood retains its Cuban national flavour. There are noisy street fairs accompanied by Latin American music and dancing, colourful processions during Catholic holidays and various national festivals.

South Beach

The resort centre of Miami, a point of attraction for all lovers of nightlife. Its unofficial name is “American Riviera”. There is a huge number of nightclubs, excellent restaurants, hotels and shops. The main “highlight” of the area is its magnificent beach, covered with dazzling white sand. South Beach is also home to a historic neighbourhood of picturesque Art Deco buildings.

Lincoln Road

Miami is not only an ideal beach resort, but also a great place for shopping. The city has entire streets where “shopaholics” can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of shopping. One such place is Lincoln Road. Boutiques and shops of all the world’s famous brands are waiting for customers here, where you can buy clothes, accessories, jewellery, cosmetics, gadgets and souvenirs.

665 reviews
A historic street with Art Deco buildings dating from 1920-40 that is a popular “promenade” and gathering place for the bohemian crowd. The street stretches for several kilometres along the ocean. Many buildings of architectural interest were demolished. Those that remain have been recognised as National Historic Landmarks. Many rare cars can be seen on Ocean Drive.

Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College

450 reviews
The structure is located in central Miami on Biscayne Boulevard. It was erected in 1925 for the office of The Miami News. In 1957, the building was taken over by the city, and a reception centre for Cuban immigrants was built on its site. The name “Freedom Tower” was given to the building because Cubans who fled the Castro regime believed that they had found true freedom in the United States. Nowadays, the tower houses a museum and a library of Cuban literature.
Right now place is temporarily closed.
