As diverse as it is exciting, Miami is a destination that will keep you busy throughout your entire trip. Youthful, vibrant and occasionally eccentric, this colourful city is home to an exciting nightlife, beautiful beaches and an eclectic mix of cuisines, bars and cafes. If you need a break from all the noise, this destination is also home to numerous museums, zoos and aquariums and fascinating events. As this location sees visitors year round, it is important to do a bit of research in order to find the best deals on flights.
The weather in Miami is at its best from December through March. During this period the climate is pleasantly warm and drier than usual, making this the ideal time for tourists to explore all of the outdoor activities, such as swimming in the lovely waters, air-boating through the Everglades, and celebrating at the Carnaval Miami.
The months of April to May, and September to October make up the shoulder season in the city. While other tourists return to their everyday lives, the budget traveller will delight in the cheap flights to Miami, shorter lines, and lovely weather.
As many American families go on holiday from June to August, the city becomes a little more crowded than usual. However, given the heat and humidity of this period, tourists are fewer, making accommodations and flights to Miami inexpensive. If you do not mind mingling with the touring families, this is a great time to get a tan on the beach, take a dip in the Venetian Pool, or gaze at the fireworks on Independence Day.

Car rentals and taxis are two of the most popular methods of ground transport, as they not only allow for a quicker trip, but also allow for more flexibility throughout your holiday. If these two methods are not an option, public buses and free shuttles to the Tri-Rail station are also available.
