Miami is the second largest city in Florida; the majority of residents speak Spanish. Since Downtown has few attractions, most tourists are drawn to the districts. Little Havana is the Cuban heart of the city; Calle Ocho is home to lots of Latin American art galleries, cafés and cigar shops. In Maximo Gomez Park, locals discuss politics over a game of dominoes.
Friends of street art will love the Miami Design District – an entire neighborhood as a work of art. Coconut Grove, artist and luxury district, is home to the Villa Vizcaya, built for James Deering, one of the city’s founders. The cruise capital of the world lost its top position – based on passenger data – in 2022. Port Canaveral, also located in Florida, is the new busiest cruise port in the world.
