Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.

Plan my day in Miami using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Detroit to Miami is an approximately 6.5-hour combination of flight and tram. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or drive. Traveling from Detroit in December, expect Miami to be much hotter, temps between 81°F and 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Key West.
