Local Seasons:

 

Miami Beach is a vibrant, energetic city, alive with a Latin beat any day of the year, particularly when the sun sets.  Winter tends to be the busiest time of year when people from the north come to experience the beautiful beaches with swaying palm trees and warm ocean breezes.  However, at any time of year, the city is alive with tourists from throughout the world.  When summer arrives there is an influx of visitors from both South America as well as Europe, making this truly an international destination.  Spring and fall tend to be less crowded and are wonderful for enjoying all the city has to offer with a few less people.
