Miami is known as "the magic city" for being one of the most popular and tourist places in the world. There are incredible places in this city and it is easy to visit without having to spend a lot of money. We suggest rent a car when you arive at Miami's Airport for about 110 dollars a week, this way you can enjoy the freedom to move around the city and the state as you please. Let's look at some of the places to visit in Miami.
Ocean Drive. If you are touring South Beach you need to stroll along Ocean Drive, its streets are full of Art Deco buildings, a very characteristic and unique architectural style. In Ocean Drive you will discover more than 800 Art Deco buildings built between 1930 and 1940. In South Beach the Art Deco was well received, for this reason there is an Art Deco District Welcome Center (1200 Ocean Drive corner with the 12th) where you can get more information about this South Beach architectural revolution and about how to do a tour around the area.
At South Beach we recommend going to the famous Lummus Park Beach, a nature park on Miami's most popular beach. The park is the coast of Ocean Drive, from the 6th to 14th Street. Lummus Park Beach is a good place to rest and take a leisurely stroll to enjoy the Atlantic coast with your children.
A large part of Cuba remains alive in Miami thanks to Little Havana, where dissidents who escaped the Castro regime began to live a new life, keeping alive Cuban memories, customs and lifestyles. The population of this emblematic neighborhood is about 50,000 people. 98% of its population are Latin people, Cuban by a large percentage.
Life in Little Havana revolves around Calle Ocho. In this street we find artisans making cigars, dozens of Cuban restaurants or some shops playing cheerful music full of rhythm. At Calle Ocho you will see the Paseo de Fama with the best known Cuban stars. At Avenida 15, you can visit Parque Máximo Gómez, a meeting point where Cubans gather to play dominoes or chess. There is an inevitable atmosphere of nostalgia and longing that comes from the lively talks of those who, out of necessity or obligation, left their beloved land years ago.
On your visit to Little Havana do not forget to drink the authentic Cuban coffee, a very intense espresso that is served in almost any café and restaurant in the area. In case you want to have a meal, it is a very good idea to try the Creole food along with a Guarapo, a sugar cane juice very typical in the gastronomy of the island.
