No roads or bridges lead to the island - it is accessible only by ferry or private invitation.

All about Miami

When to visit

Weather-wise, spring is considered the best time to visit Miami, but timing is key. March is Spring Break season, and many college students flock to Miami for festivities. Come April and May, students are back in school, which may be the best window to visit the idyllic South Beach.

Summers in Miami are hot and humid, but that doesn’t stop families on summer break flocking to the white sand beaches. Events like Art Basel bring the crowds, making summer an expensive, albeit exciting, time to visit.

Fall is peak hurricane season in the Atlantic. While good weather is not always a guarantee, it can lead to disruptions in travel and reservations.

With temperatures averaging in the mid-70s, winter is a perfect escape from colder northern climes. Miami is a popular holiday-season retreat, with holiday lights adorning its art deco buildings and palm tree-lined streets.

Getting around

Walking: Warm weather year-round means Miami is a great walking city. The city’s mostly grid-like layout and numbered streets and avenues make it easy to navigate by foot.

Train: Downtown Miami has a Metromover rail line that goes to popular locations and is free to all passengers. In addition, the Metrorail line travels throughout the city’s metropolitan area if you’re planning a day trip.

Bus: The Metrobus has almost 100 routes within the city limits, making it a reliable way to get from one neighborhood to the other. The schedules for the bus change throughout the course of the day, so plan accordingly to avoid longer-than-necessary transfers. The Miami Beach Trolleys are an easy—and free—option to get to the city’s major beaches.

Taxi: Miami taxis can be easily found throughout the city, and are a good option for those looking to avoid parking problems in the busier parts of town. Uber and Lyft also operate throughout the city’s metropolitan area.

Traveler tips

Miami may be known for its beaches, but the city’s culture is really its backbone. Bolstered by its hispanic population, Miami has the largest Cuban-American population in the country, which makes the city’s Little Havana neighborhood a must-visit area for food, art, music, and nightlife. Before planning your visit, be sure to check the city’s event calendar to make sure you are planning your visit around some of the larger events—especially if you are looking for a trip on a budget. Miami’s busy seasons span throughout the course of the year, making hotel, airfare, and attraction rates fluctuate, with small windows in between to grab the best deals.
