Activities And Accommodation In Miami

By: Gaizka Pujana

Miami is a city with everything going for it, and for the young or even the young at heart there's something to do for everyone. Accommodation is plentiful even for those who probably won't be frequenting the top star hotels. In the South Beach area alone there are over 3,000 beds for rent so you can just imagine how many there are in the whole of the Miami and Miami Beach area. The prices of these beds may range from between $15 per night for a bed in a dormitory to thousands of dollars for some of the best suites in the world. The best times to travel to Miami in terms of finding good hotel deals are between Easter and Memorial Day and in the autumn months of September and October be warned however that these later months can bring hurricanes!

Enough of the inside, what about the outside? Due to the all year sunshine for which Miami is renowned, it is more than capable of providing the tools with which to eliminate its other renowned factor a place for old people. Miami has an incredibly vibrant outdoor culture and because of this is a magnet for outdoors loving young people just as much as for their balcony loving older counterparts.

You will be able to find a sport or activity to suit every taste in the Miami area depending on the level of action and involvement required. For those happy to watch, why not check out stock-car races at the Hialeah Speedway course, of the Winston Cup NASCAR events at the Miami-Dade Homestead Motorsports complex. For something a little quieter there's the Florida Marlins Baseball team or the Miami Heat basketball team.

You may feel however, that whilst by the ocean water-based activities are a must. You wouldn't be the only one. The Crandon Park Marina offers opportunities for deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and power boat hire whilst providing a beautiful setting and restaurant for less adventurous relatives to relax and await your return. Alternatively in the Government Cut jetty area you can find windsurfing centers and even windsurfing only beaches.

For those after a little involvement, but not necessarily heart racing action, perhaps a little biking may be in order. The area's flat terrain and good weather makes it a perfect cycling location. There are numerous bicycle centers and clubs that will offer bike-hiring services, and anyone can get a free map which will illustrate the cycle-friendly routes, location of bike shops and even give details of bike rack-equipped busses.

For a the more animal sport based person Miami offers the choice of dog racing, fishing, and horse racing; or if you prefer ball focused activities why not check out the numerous tennis centers or golf courses
