Miami is an incredibly diverse and multicultural city. I had the chance to travel to Miami recently to witness the beautiful  scenery and I realized how gorgeous the place is.

 The clear blue water and the white sand beach is a must-see. Under the warm spring sunshine, the waves are lapping at your feet and you can relax on an endless expanse of beautiful white sand. The colorful and unique stands used by Miami Beach’s lifeguards is a unique aesthetic attribute of South Beach. South Beach is also a major entertainment destination with lots of nightclubs and boutiques. The streets are  ablaze with lights in the evening, and there is an extraordinary excitement in the  air that attracts thousands of people.

South beach is one of the most picturesque spots in Miami. Beautiful beaches and popular nightlife comes together in just a few blocks.

Little Havana is also a very well known place to visit. From my perspective, the best characteristic of Miami is it’s Cuban food. Whether you’re looking for a gourmet meal prepared by an internationally esteemed chef or a cheap but authentic meal prepared at a hole in the wall, the Cuban food of Little Havana is one of the best and tastiest parts.

Key West is Florida’s southernmost subtropical paradise, a unique confluence of history, climate, natural beauty and cultural diversity. The main attraction in Key West is a natural one – the sunsets. While you wait for the brilliant orange sun to sink into the sea, street performers of every type abound, you will find a beautiful landscape is complemented by a beautiful artist performance.

Miami and Key West.  It was a trip I have been dreaming of. I will go back soon no doubt.
