Miami Holidays Overview


If one had to define the city of Miami in just two words (no we’re not talking about “Sunshine State”), it would be “scorching hot”. This is in no way trying to point to the sultry weather that the city enjoys. What we’re talking about is the amazing nightlife that is known to be extremely hot thanks to a strong salsa culture and the Latin influence. The city is full of celeb owned nightclubs, countless bars and fine dining restaurants and there is no shortage of places to check out in Miami. And then, there’s the world famous Miami beach which offers its own style of parties and things to do.

Miami has managed to successfully reinvent itself from a citrus farming town to one of the greatest cities in the world. It is known to be the most Latin city in the world to the north of Mexico and also features a healthy population of Caribbeans and Jews. Miami is famous all over the world for its wild party scenes, South Beach celebrity parties, showbiz and cosmetic sights. It might be a bit weird if you have to stay in Miami for long, but the its weirdness is what makes Miami so beautiful and so different from the rest. And beautiful is not just a term used for the city itself. All you need to do is stroll down to the Miami Beach or any Fort Lauderdale club to check out some of the most beautiful looking people on earth.

Miami might be most famous for its cosmetic delights, but that’s not all that it has to offer. To the west of Miami lies the scintillating Everglades, known to be one of the most beautiful ecosystems in North America. The sight of the pale moon shimmering down on the Everglades is a sight to kill for. To the north of the city lies the Fort Lauderdale that is famous for its beautiful vistas and countless yachting fleets. The Florida Keys along with its exotic islands and sultry bars are located to the south.

Each year the top two teams of the NFL log battle it out for the prestigious Vince Lombardi trophy. The event is the most popular television broadcast of the year and advertisers pay millions of dollars to have their latest commercials shown during the quarters. This, and the number of massive musical acts in between the game have lead it to become more than just a regular football event but rather an entire celebration of grandiosity.
