This photo tour of Miami Beach will not only include information on things to do, but we hope to inspire you visually through beautiful photographs.

Miami is known for being a top spot for the rich and famous. Of course that also makes everyone think it’s outrageously expensive. But actually, there are a lot of fun and cool things to do that are free!

Best Time to Visit Miami Beach

Welcome to Miami Beach

Generally speaking the most beautiful time to visit Miami Beach is from November to April. The weather is absolutely gorgeous with sunny skies and temperatures primarily in the 70’s and possibly low 80’S. Of course, it’s also the most popular time to visit, therefore it is more crowed and more expensive. If you’re on a budget or want to avoid large crowds at the beach, then shoot for the shoulder season. This would include October to November, January, and late March through May. Typically the weather is still nice in these time frames, although do keep in mind that October, November and May are part of hurricane season.
