Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Change things up with these side-trips from Miami: Shark Valley (in Everglades National Park) and Fort Lauderdale Beach (in Fort Lauderdale). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, have fun at Lock & Load Miami, buy something for everyone on your list at Dolphin Mall, and admire the striking features of St Patrick Catholic Church.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Miami planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Miami International Airport, Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in December, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can drive to 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.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Thu): shop like a local with Britto Central, then take a stroll through Lincoln Road, and then get to know the fascinating history of Art Deco Historic District.

For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies.
