Miami Beach ©
Separated by water from the neighboring city of Miami, Miami Beach sits on a barrier island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
Step out of the city life by going to Shark Valley and Haulover Beach Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Lincoln Road and Art Deco Historic District. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at South Beach, admire the masterpieces at The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, get a taste of the local shopping with Collins Avenue, and buy something for everyone on your list at Bayside Marketplace.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Miami Beach fast, fun, and easy.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Let the collections at Exploratorium and Asian Art Museum capture your imagination. Visiting Alcatraz Island and Twin Peaks will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf, engage your brain at California Academy of Sciences, see the interesting displays at de Young Museum, and contemplate the long history of SS Jeremiah O'Brien.
