Miami is considered to be a global city based on its pivotal role in finance, media, entertainment, commerce, the arts, and international trade. It is home base for many company headquarters, TV studios, and banks. Many young people also flock to the South Beach area for spring break because of its dynamic night life. South Beach was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed and it has seen a booming economy and increased tourism over the years.
For a wonderful overview of the Miami area as a whole, take the combination Miami City Tour & Biscayne Cruise. This tour spends 2 hours visiting the most popular tourist hot spots in South Florida. You will go through the downtown Miami area and financial district as well as Little Havana and Coconut Grove on your way to the Biscayne portion of the day.
On the Biscayne Bay Cruise, you will see million dollar homes on Star Island – an artificial oval-shaped island located between Miami and the island of Miami Beach – from up close. This is a public neighborhood but it is manned by a guard in a guard house to give the impression that it is exclusive and private. Many stars have called this area home including Will Smith, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and Gloria Estefan.
This tour and cruise take 6 hours combined, with 2 hours devoted to the Miami City Tour. For scenic views and an inside look at how the other half lives, book your space on this tour and cruise combo and you will be glad that you did!
