Downtown Miami is the heartbeat and international business hub of South Florida.
Surrounded by breathtaking bay views, American, Caribbean, and Latin American cultures converge against a spectacular oceanfront skyline. 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 and American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat. Stroll down Biscayne Boulevard to Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, home of the Florida Grand Opera and Miami City Ballet; and Bayside Marketplace, a waterfront retail and entertainment complex with more than 100 shops and restaurants. Bayfront and Bicentennial Park host live-music events such as the Ultra Music Festival.
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. Just south of the central business district, Brickell is South Florida’s major financial district. Locals refer to this area as “Millionaire’s Row,” because Brickell’s pricey apartments, condominiums and mansions dot the Miami skyline.
