Miami and the Beaches - Hotter than Ever!
This week the Travel Show heads to Miami and the Beaches! From charming romantic hideaways to comfortable family getaways – Miami has it all. Whether it's a get-away-from-it-all nature retreat one day, or a non-stop whirling party the next - there's something for everyone in Miami. Hotels, resorts, attractions and restaurants are currently all offering great deals - whether you are planning a family holiday, a honeymoon, or just a quick getaway. And there is always something new!
Famous for its architecture - from Art Deco to the Modern Miami style – Miami continues to erect some wonderful buildings. January 2011 sees the opening of the New World Symphony performance hall - designed by Frank Gehry, who also created Toronto’s new Art Gallery of Ontario.
A New Car Rental Center has opened at Miami International Airport, bringing all car rental outlets under one roof. This is the first phase of a major 1.7 billion dollar travel hub linking aircraft, cars and rail.
With Miami's warm tropical climate there is also year round, non-stop, activity. Miami boasts sophisticated arts & culture and a festival life second to none. New in November 2010 is “Miami Live Music Month”, coinciding with the Miami Music Festival. There’s great live music in clubs and venues throughout Miami.
The Miami Music Festival (Nov 11-14, 2010) and its emerging artists' conference return this November with a new and expanded schedule, new venues and more new music than ever. The Miami Music festival will again feature acts in a wide variety of genres from Florida, around the U.S. and around the world, performing for the music industry, the press, the local community of music fans and visitors to Miami. In 2010, the festival will add shows in major theaters, two daytime, multi-stage sessions and use more clubs throughout the city.
For relaxation and pampering, the very latest spa treatments and fitness classes are available at day spas or the city's many luxurious spa resorts. Stroll the city's lush botanical gardens and take in the city's famous Art Deco architecture. Or simply enjoy Miami's stunning beaches, which regularly make the A-list with their soft sand, cool breezes and temperatures averaging 24C.
An epicure's paradise awaits you in Miami! Miami dishes up exotic ingredients and taste-tempting selections. You can dine alfresco or indoors, go casual or extravagant, savor International or Caribbean, "New World" or "Floribbean," which uses flavors and spices from the nearby Caribbean and Latin American countries. Miami also plays host to a year-round slate of prestigious wine and food events such as South Beach Wine and Food Festival, International Mango Festival, and Miami Spice Restaurant Month.
And Miami's nightlife is as hot as the sunsets. Sultry nights, seductive rhythms, hot Latin tempos and sophisticated vibes guarantee a great time.
