    Best Time to Visit

    Late April and early May, after the Spring Break students have departed by before the heat is really on and summer vacationers flood the beaches.

    What to Pack

    Prepare opposing sets of clothing – casual flip-flops and shorts for the day, and dress shirts for evening dining. Never forget your sunglasses. And sunscreen.

    General Tips

    Miami surprises most who suspect it to be all about the beaches when it comes to art and culture. Home to the second largest performing arts center in the US, the Adrienne Arsht Center, it also hosts the Florida Grand Opera, the Ziff Ballet Opera House and Gusman Center.

    Art Basel Miami Beach, the “Olympics of Art,” is held each year in early December, but in Downtown, visitors at other times of the year should check out the Frost Art Museum, Miami Art Museum and HistoryMiami.

    Two fashion events, Miami Fashion week and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week compete as the city’s most important, while electronic music festivals the Winter Music Conference and Ultra Music Festival, both held in March, ensure the city keeps the pulse on modern music.
