The Miami Design District fuels the fashion-forward Florida city with various luxury brand stores, including Gucci, Flight Club and Prada. If you're not here to shop, you'll find an abundance of art and architecture. Recent visitors praised the expansive art galleries that populate the area, while public displays, which include murals and statues, provide mind-bending photo backdrops. Travelers also enjoyed window-shopping as they strolled by the high-end stores. Many compared the area to Rodeo Drive. If you'd like a little help navigating the area, book one of the city's top tours, many of which stop in the area.

What's more, a variety of upscale restaurants call the Miami Design District home, which makes the area an excellent option for an elegant meal. The district sits about 3 miles north of downtown Miami, while Miami Beach floats just across Biscayne Bay. The Biscayne route on the city's trolley system stops in the center of the Miami Design District, and bus routes Nos. 3, 9 and 93 also offer stops in or nearby the district. For more information, visit the district's website.

Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach, the region's unrivaled crown jewel, which visitors say they can't get enough of. Here, the art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.

There's something for everyone in Miami Beach – and a lot of it. White sand, an eclectic dining scene, prime shopping, luxurious spas and world-class nightlife are all staples in Miami Beach. Just make sure to bring plenty of loot – Miami Beach can be done on a budget, but you'll severely limit your options and it won't be nearly as fun.
