It's really no wonder Miami tops so many travelers' wish lists; Miami and the Beaches is not just one destination, it's an unmatched tapestry of unique cultures and one-of-a-kind neighborhoods, each one beguiling in its own right, each one inviting thorough exploration.

Your Miami vacation goes beyond the vivid views, the spectacular scenes, and the cacophony of color. It's more than the sun and sand and surf and swaying palms. It's even better than the perpetual convertible weather, the shorts and tees temperatures, the year-round golf and tennis and water sports. It goes beyond the posh hotels, the mind-blowing menus, the picturesque pools, the museums and galleries, the see-and-be-seen scenes, the year-round dining under the stars.

This hotbed of people-watching, this fisherman's feast, this boater's paradise, this foodie's fantasy, this city abloom is all the images you recognize, plus all the new ones you've yet to capture. It's nature at its wildest, it's history preserved, and unfolding right in front of you. It's a living breathing melting pot, showcased in Miami and the Beaches' many one-of-a-kind neighborhoods.

We invite you to explore each and every one. Miami's oldest village, Coconut Grove, is lush, quirky, meandering, and full of bohemian personality. Just over the causeway, Key Biscayne offers a historic lighthouse, the country club boating life, beachfront resorts, and reflected skyline views of Downtown Miami, a haven for the cosmopolitan set. Surfside is a chill blend of beach and village - not too fast, not too slow. Then there's Wynwood - its explosion of hip creativity shows up on the warehouse walls, the menus, on every surface. Sunny Isles is beachy bliss, kayaking the mangroves, and just the right amount of city. If you get a chance, explore the five-star fashions, oceanfront luxury, and pampered lifestyle of Bal Harbour Village. Or stroll Little Havana's Calle Ocho where you'll find Cuba's flavors and traditions are part of daily life. For shopping like a pro, there's the malls of Aventura and Doral, which is also home to the 18 intimidating holes of the famed Blue Monster. Then for something completely different, wander Little Haiti. This home of our own Port-au-Prince is part Creole, part French, all artistic charm. Or for soul food, jazz roots, and gospel music, it's Historic Overtown and its Lyric Theater. For full-throttle racing, gator farms, and America's fruit basket, head out to Homestead. And for classic Mediterranean architecture, soak up the timeless elegance of Coral Gables and its Miracle Mile, Biltmore Hotel, and Venetian Pool. Or, for architecture of an entirely different vibe, head to North Beach, home of Miami Modern's cheese-holes in concrete. For Art Deco at its best, wander Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive in South Beach, and for nature gone completely wild, head to the river of grass known as the Everglades. Each of these neighborhoods and many more invite you to start exploring your vacation at ItSoMiami.com.

Your child will always remember
