Miami, Florida, USA
The downtown skyline fronting onto Biscayne Bay (I)
The allure of Miami, Florida, is undeniable, from chic South Beach with its beautiful beach-goers posing against the pastel hues of Art Deco hotels to the on-fire arts scene in the Wynwood district, to the vibrant clubs and restaurants of Little Havana. Couture fashion and luxe home décor shopping are at its finest in the Design District, along with an array of hip cafés. In the evenings, sway in the warm breeze to the Latin rhythms on a rooftop lounge overlooking the Atlantic.
