When to go
Miami

The best times to visit Miami are in winter (from December to February) and spring (from March to May) when the weather is warm and sunny with temperatures ranging from 16 to 30 degrees Celsius. Art lovers will also want to visit during this time, specifically in December, for the city’s famous Art Basel. While Miami still puts on a fantastic party atmosphere at any time of year, do be aware that the crowds often decline during Hurricane Season from June to November.
