If you're looking to get your modern art fix in Miami, look no further than the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. Located off of Northeast 125th Street, the MOCA is an institution with a varied collection of work from both famous and emerging artists.

There's also an impressive array of temporary exhibits that complement MOCA's already-brilliant permanent collection. The permanent collection boasts innovative work from the likes of Nam June Paik, Dan Flavin and Louise Bourgeois. However, the museum is fairly small, something recent visitors found a bit disappointing, but you should be able to easily get through it in less than two hours.

General admission to the museum is $10. Students and seniors get a bit of a break, paying only $3, while children age 12 and younger can enter for free. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Visit the website for more information.

#1 Miami Beach

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.
