4 things to consider before booking a weekend In Miami*
If you’re planning a trip to Miami and you don’t know where to start then don’t worry, you have definitely come to the right place. With so many different things to consider it’s important that you plan as much as you can in advance. Whether that means finding the perfect hotel or choosing the best restaurants to visit, the more you plan the better. With that in mind, here are four things to consider before booking a trip to Miami:
Have you considered the culture?
Whenever you’re travelling to a new destination you need to consider the culture and whether or not it will affect your trip in any way. Since the late 1960s, Miami has been shaped by many cultural influences, particularly Cuban and is nicknamed the capital of Latin America because of its high population of Spanish-speakers.
What location will you be staying in?
When it comes to location in Miami there are plenty of great options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a lively area or you want to stay off the beaten track, you can find the best options available to you on the Visit Florida website.
Some of the best areas to stay in Miami include South Beach, Downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Design District, Little Havana and near the airport.
What will you be doing whilst you’re there?
Another important thing to consider when it comes to planning your weekend in Miami is what you’re going to be doing whilst you’re there. Although you may have a couple of must-do activities in mind, planning a full itinerary will help ensure you don’t miss anything. Whether that means renting a boat in Miami or visiting the famous South Beach, the more you plan in advance the better.
Things to do in Miami include:
- Visiting Ocean Drive
- Chilling out at South Beach
- Go to the Miami Seaquarium
- Spend some time on the ocean
- Visit the Art Deco District
- Spend the day at Jungle Island
- Swim in the Venetian Pool

Have you considered the weather?
Finally, you need to think about the weather during your visit. Florida weather can be extremely unpredictable and with hurricane season just around the corner, it’s important you know what to expect when it comes to the weather conditions. In most cases, you may find bad weather and storms will prevent you from carrying out some of the activities on your itinerary. For the best chance of sunshine, try visiting just before the rainy season starts.
