Miami – the 'Magic City' on Florida’s white-sand coast. Famous for its iconic palm trees, glistening art deco architecture, and of course, its beautiful beaches, Miami is a coastal metropolis full of surprises.
The city is host to PortMiami, the busiest cruise port in the world, and is also the only major US city founded by a woman - Julia Tuttle, a wealthy Cleveland native with a business in Florida citrus groves, owned the land upon which the sensational seaside city was built. Tuttle later became known as the 'Mother of Miami' after convincing railroad tycoon Henry Flagler to extend the Florida East Coast Railway to the region, sparking the first influxes of mass tourism to Miami.
The city sits enchantingly between the Everglades and Biscayne Bay, home to several hundred beautiful barrier islands. Owing to the generous Gulf Stream currents, Miami is blessed with a warm climate and a bay that beckons swimmers and divers all year round.
Miami is the city of the divine and daring, best discovered on two wheels.
