Considered by many to be the most dynamic, fastest-growing and sexiest city in the country, Miami is more popular than ever before. Yet it is a city that is not only changing but evolving, never rewriting the past but only contributing to its illustrious heritage. And this is the real beauty of Miami. The chic Surf Club and the lively Faena Hotel have not replaced the distinctive Raleigh of the 1940s and the Ritz Carlton of the 1950s; rather, they are complementary. Classics like Joe's Stone Crab continue to serve their signature fare to sold-out crowds every night, while new establishments attract name chefs. The iconic art deco architecture remains on full display as the modern Herzog & de Meuron-designed Perez Art Museum stands in stark contrast. Full of art and culture year-round, from the international art at The Bass to the street art of Wynwood Walls,every December, the city is taken over by the global cultural elite for Art Basel Miami Beach, a fair that attracts more than 80,000 visitors who turn up for the memorable art, such as Maurizio Cattelan's show stopping 'Comedian', and the lavish festivities that were organised each evening.
Known for its nightlife, pleasure is always central to life in Miami. Yachts and pleasure boats line the marinas, lively beaches offer front-row seats to a parade of bronzed revelers, and bladers and bikers coast along the beach promenades. Miami has become the hub for all things chic, fiery and colourful. Miami Beach takes readers on a tour of this bold and wonderful metropolis.
