Star-studded, palm-fringed, and confident in the extreme, Miami is the original city of hustle, of bustle, of multicultural flair and pizzazz. Cheap flights to Miami from New Zealand will drop you halfway around the globe in huge MIA airport. From there, the Art Deco palaces of South Beach beckon, the smoky cigarillo shops of Little Havana await, and the gleaming inlets of Biscayne Bay will be hard to resist. Yep, this is a town filled with excitement, hedonism, and downright fun. But deals on flights could also open up the hammock-swinging Florida Keys and the gator-trodden Everglades National Park a little further afield.
Little Havana beats with life and energy. Come and spy out its vibey street art and sip mojitos in the roadside cantinas.
Miami Beach is the place to strut your stuff. Hit the Art Deco district here to see retro clubs, or go for the sands to top up the tan.
The onetime estate of tycoon James Deering, the Vizcaya Museum & Garden is an eye-watering glimpse of Miami's opulent mansion homes and galleries.
