Deciding where to go on that hard-earned holiday can lead the most laid-back and unfussy of people to crack under the sheer wealth of options there is to choose from.
Whilst factors such as price, climate, distance and availability will all play their in part in helping prospective holiday-makers narrow down their options, finding that one place that ticks all the boxes may not be as hard as at first seems.
For many, a coastal city with a high-chance of sunshine is the ideal location, given it offers the classic ‘sun, sand and sea’ break, set against a backdrop of a buzzing, bustling cosmopolitan conurbation. In short, it offers the best of both vacation worlds, ensuring boredom doesn’t have a chance to set in.
Indeed, Miami is one such city that manages to marry relaxation and exhilaration to create the perfect holiday hotspot.
Its ideal location on the south-east coast of America’s self-proclaimed ‘Sunshine State’ makes it the perfect place for those seeking to soak up some rays. Moreover, Miami’s winter temperature often reaches as much as 25 degrees Celsius, with its average annual temperature rarely falling below 20 or rising above 30. This ultimately means that the climate is fantastic for visitors any time of year, whether it’s an extended summer break or a short winter escape from the gloomy British weather.
Furthermore, Miami has mile upon mile of sandy beaches to enjoy the year-round sunshine. Although Miami Beach is technically a city in its own right, its proximity to Miami city means it is often unofficially incorporated into the Miami city region. Miami Beach happens to be home to South Beach, which is a buzzing district offering an array of nightclubs, restaurants and hotels, not to mention some fabulous stretches of beach too.
Miami may be a US city, but more than 65% of the population are Hispanic, meaning that you are more likely to overhear a conversation in Spanish than in English. The city’s close proximity to Cuba has resulted in many Cuban exiles arriving in Miami since Fidel Castro’s rise to power in 1959. The western side of the city has come to be known as ‘Little Havana’ due to the massive influx of Cubans, and today the district is a mesmerising mix of Cuban eateries and a Hispanic flavour that is unmatched anywhere else outside of Latin America.
Of course, in a city as vibrant and culturally diverse as this, Miami flights arrive from all over the Americas and Europe, with flights to Miami taking around nine hours from London Heathrow.
The city’s international airport is among the busiest in the world and it’s easy to see why. With so much sun, sand, sea and culture, there can be little doubt that Miami is the perfect place for prospective holidaymakers seeking to cover all bases.
