Top Tourist Sites for Miami Locals and Tourists
It’s no secret that Miami is a hot spot for tourists, with year-round nice weather and miles of powdery white beaches and crystal blue crashing waves there is a lot to love about the city and all it has to offer. While Miami does indeed draw in a large crowd of tourists, surprisingly the locals seem to love a lot of the tourist activities just as much as those vacationing in the area. While the area is chalked full of hundreds of different venues, miles and miles of beaches, upscale restaurants, street performers, ticketed performances and sites, there are a few things that double as both local favorites as well as rank high on the list of “musts” for both tourists and vacationers.
