Due to its amazing expansion from 1000 residents in 1886 to nearly 6 million in 2007, it has become known as ‘The Magic City’. Ranked as one of the most impressive in the United States, Miami’s skyline is marked by a large number of high rise buildings. Plan a honeymoon in Miami, and you can join the 12 million tourists that flock here each year to enjoy the beaches and the tropical weather.

You’ll find plenty of serene picnic locations and places to enjoy a quiet stroll during your honeymoon in Miami, with more than 80 parks and gardens to choose from. Being close to the Atlantic Ocean, water sports are popular in Miami, and there are plenty of activities to choose from.
