Located on the mainland, downtown and the surrounding districts make up the city’s urban core. Skyscrapers shoot up from the coastline revealing sea-to-sky panoramic views with a metropolitan feel. Explore the heart of downtown where you’ll find elite cultural institutions on the waterfront like the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat. Home to luxury brand boutiques and great restaurants, Brickell City Centre is a high-end, multi-level urban mall spanning several city blocks in Brickell. Be sure to visit nearby Mary Brickell Village, a popular nightlife and dining district frequented by Miami’s young and hip crowd.
