Overview

This exciting city dubbed "the Gateway to the Americas" is the leading financial hub of the region and an international mecca where more residents speak Spanish than English.

Author Mark Miller introduces readers to the astonishing diversity of ethnic neighborhoods, where homeland languages and customs are preserved in restaurants, shops, and markets, explaining much of the city's vibrancy and appeal. Nearby are inviting beaches as well as wetlands and jungles and an archipelago of coral isles leading to raffish, bewitching Key West. Miller guides readers through Miami's districts—downtown, Little Havana, Little Haiti, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, and South Miami—then to Biscayne and Everglades National Parks and to the Keys, suggesting walks and drives throughout.

Features include the famed "New World" cuisine, South Beach's renowned art deco, and the city's Jewish heritage, as well as insider tips from National Geographic experts and experiential sidebars on snorkeling, diving, and fishing in the Keys. Travelwise includes all essential practical information and a large selection of insider's hotels, inns, and restaurants.
