Tropical winter break
There’s no need to spend winter vacation stuck indoors or pushing through crowds of people in the rain and snow. Leave the dreary winter weather behind and take a flight to Miami, Florida for a brilliant, tropical winter break. There is no nicer place to be in those winter months than in sunny Miami, where the beach and boardwalk are inviting all year long and the relaxing pace never gets boring.
The warm weather and lack of rain during the winter months is what tends to draw vacationers from all over the world to this lovely city. Not only is it an escape from the normal weather, but this is past the usual months for hurricanes, so nothing should interfere with a lovely Miami holiday. The obliging weather leads many visitors to the beach and to the boardwalk. Spend the afternoon bicycling or skating along the Miami Beach Boardwalk to take in the amazing atmosphere of the place. Make sure to also visit the popular Homestead Bayfront Park and South Beach, where there is so much to see, taste and experience.
Art lovers should not miss Miami in the winter months because its during this season that the city holds its Art Basel Miami Beach as well as the Miami art fair. There is also the Miami International Art Fair, the Miami Beach Festival of the Arts and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. Winter and art go hand in hand in this city, so its the perfect time of year for artists and art lovers to come and enjoy the displays of culture and creativity.
Another treat in the winter months is Santa’s Enchanted Forest, which is home to the largest and most amazing decorated Christmas tree in the world. There are also many rides, delicious snacks and activities for the whole family. The family will also enjoy visiting the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and learning all about the historical artifacts that tell so much of the rich history of the area. The Miami Seaquarium is another attraction the kids won’t want to miss. This is a magical and wonderful place where people can enjoy the beautiful sea creatures as they swim and delight themselves in harmony and comfort.
New Year in Miami
Miami is a great place to usher in the New Year. The City puts on its very own New Year’s Eve Party that would rival even the festivities in Times Square—at least the weather is better in Miami! South Beach is the location of the party and fireworks light up the night sky overhead while bands bring fantastic tunes. The beach party lasts through the night into the early morning hours and its an experience not soon forgotten.
Aside from the attractions, the city has much to offer winter guests in terms of shopping and dining out. Leading up to Christmas the shopping becomes even more exciting. The Bayside Marketplace is one of the most popular places to spend the day shopping and eating to the heart’s delight. There are many brand shops as well as some of the smaller stores that make the experience so much fun. Purchase souvenirs or finish up the Christmas shopping, but make sure to stop for some hot chocolate or a tasty lunch as well.
Miami in the winter is an escape from the overcast, the snow and the rain. People in this city tend to be a happy crowd and the weather has much to do with it, but there is so much to experience in Miami. In the winter months it is the place to be.
