Also known as the Sunshine State, Florida is one of the most popular states in the US with millions flocking to see sandy beaches, wild wetlands, and overpriced themeparks. It's also infamous for alligators appearing in the most unexpected places.
Miami is all about beaches, yachts, nightlife and beautiful people. South Beach, known as SoBe – is the center of the action. The sidewalks are full of tanned and lithe people. There is a Latin feel to the city thanks to its huge Cuban community. Miami comes to life after sunset, there's clubs and bars for every type of night-owl – from chic to skanky.
A nice sidetrip from Miami is Fort Lauderdale. It's a laid back version of Miami without the international crowds - people there being predominantly Americans.
