The city of Miami was voted one of the 50 extraordinary destinations to explore by the famous TIME magazine.
According to ESPN, “Miami is becoming America's wellness and leisure capital. The inaugural Miami Grand Prix in May drew a spectacular cross section of VIPs and celebrities to witness Formula One stateside, making the city feel, according to ESPN, like ‘the center of the sporting universe.
Time also mentions the recent avalanche of hotel openings and new restaurants in the city, including the playful Moxy Miami South Beach, the dual-branded AC Hotel by Marriott and Element by Westin in Brickell (the two share a fitness center and a rooftop pool), and the Art Deco Gabriel South Beach, Curio Collection by Hilton, which is powered exclusively by renewable energy.
Miami joins Portland, Park City, San Francisco and Detroit as the only five cities in the United States to be rated World’s Greatest.
TIME says it compiled the list by soliciting, “nominations of places from our international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.”
