Miami Is More Than A Snowbird Resort

By: Rachel Yoshida

Who has not heard how fantastic it is to visit the paradise city of Miami? The one thing there that is hotter than the temperature is the people. Miami is filled with beautiful people and it is one of the top spots for nightlife in the whole country. South Beach is the gathering spot for the rich and famous and everyone else alike. If nightlife is not your thing, then do not be upset because there are still plenty of other exciting things to do there.

Other than the natural beauty that can be enjoyed be visiting the Everglades, just about anywhere, Miami is well known for the beautiful beaches. Residents and visitors alike go there always when the weather is appropriate and that would be almost anytime. If you are taking kids along with you, the beach is a great place to start and end a day.

After the beach, you will want to visit the Miami Metro Zoo. It is fast becoming one of the best in the country. The Florida climate allows them to display a wide variety of animals from all over the globe. They are grouped and exhibited by the regions that they come from.

The Miami Seaquarium is also a wonderful place for families to visit. It is an outdoor park that is also possible because of the climate. You will want to budget in enough time to spend a half a day or more enjoying the marine life that is housed there. Other neat places to visit that have wild life are Parrot Jungle Island and Monkey Jungle. The kids will love the antics of the monkeys in action.

Miami also has two great museums. The Miami Museum of Science is home to the Weintraub Observatory and The Bird of Prey research center. They have some good exhibits for kids. If the kids do not get to see enough interesting things there, then take them in to the Miami Children's Museum. It is a fun place for interactive learning.

If you are not afraid of heights, you might like to try taking a balloon ride 500 hundred feet above Miami to get the most spectacular view available. If you enjoy visiting beautiful homes, do not miss the Viscaya Estates. There are over 50 acres of beautiful grounds and it is a top spot for weddings and other events.

If you thought that Miami was just a party spot for rich people, then you might want to think again. Just ask anyone who lives there why they chose this beautiful place to call their home.
