Miami’s glitz and glamour are inescapable. We all knew about South Beach, but now downtown districts like Overtown are getting a look-in, too. The world-famous Port of Miami is also the starting point for a Caribbean cruise – though a few days in this cosmopolitan Florida city should not be missed before setting sail. Stay in one of the port’s best hotels – bookable with Culture Trip.
