Miami is a year-round destination for the jet set’s elite – the coastal Floridian city sees more sunshine than all of Europe combined and its rich Cuban influences, old-world glamour and pristine beaches make it a draw for discerning travellers looking for culture, sun and hedonism. Once the home of the late Gianni Versace, it’s famous for attracting liberals and creatives and is a global hub for culture and design. More than just a paradisal strip of sand, Miami Beach plays host to Art Basel, one of the world’s most famous art and design fairs and an event that sees the arts and fashion cognoscenti descend upon the city’s sun-filled streets for a week of art appreciation and partying. The Design District – a stylish art-fuelled corner of Buena Vista – is a neighbourhood dedicated to chic galleries, luxury boutiques and interior design stores, whilst nearby Wynwood is where the young and beautiful go to hang out at craft breweries, independent bistros and late night bars. Here’s our guide to the East Coast’s most vibrant city.
