Miami travel pictures

Things to see in Miami

Down south in the USA, in the sunshine state of Florida lies the city of Miami. The main reason for visiting is the good weather and that is also the reason why many retired people live there. Unfortunately not all year round as Miami does have to go through hurricane season each year. Still, if you come here for the sun, there are many nice beaches to lay down on. Probably easiest to get to is south beach. It is a pretty standard beach with nice sand and palm trees. There are many apartment blocks overlook the beach and the ocean. If you are on a stopover at Miami airport and have a couple of hours to spare, it is actually possible to take the bus directly to the beach and go back a couple of hours later.

Besides the beach Miami also has a small downtown. The sights itself are not spectacular, but still worth to have a look at. These include the Dade county house, the Federal building, the Freedom tower and the Wells Fargo center  The religious buildings in down-town Miami include Gesu catholic church and the central baptist church. One place which is highly recommended to visit is Bayfront park. Besides it being a relaxing place, you get a very nice view of the skyline of Miami set against some nice palm trees to ad to the Florida experience. Downtown Miami is quite compact, so most sights are in walking distance from each other and one day should be enough to visit all the major sights.
