Miami’s Art Deco playground

Often called the American Riviera, Miami’s South Beach is one of the USA’s hottest holiday spots – and that’s not just the weather we’re talking about. Hugely popular with both Americans and foreigners, it’s where you’ll find Miami’s iconic Art Deco architecture, palm-lined boulevards and hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs – always ready for the next party.

Keen to explore? Our Big Bus Hop-on, Hop-off Tours let you dip in and out of the clubs, hotels and attractions at your leisure. Or simply spend a few hours people-watching and soaking up the rays on the beach. But if that sounds too slow-paced for you, you could sail along South Beach at 40mph with Thriller's speedboat tour.

Cultured and cool

As well as being a party capital, South Beach has a distinct artistic side. Visitors looking for a more serene cultural experience can discover a wealth of museums, innovative theater or the chance to step back in time at historical sites – all along our Miami Bus Tour.
