Updated on August 1, 2010

Why the City of Miami has become a Hub for Hollywood Celebrities


Located in the southern part of the South Florida region in the United States, Miami is one of the first cities that come to mind when aspiring actors are trying to build a career for themselves.

Just like Los Angeles in California, this city in Florida has become a big draw for both the already established Hollywood celebrities and those who are just starting out to carve a place for themselves in the industry.

So what exactly is it about the city of Miami which has made it turn out into such a big draw for celebrities? That is exactly what we will try to find out here.

Top Things to Do in the City

Whether you're staying for a short time or planning to turn Miami into your base city, you will not be lacking for things to do and activities to indulge in here. Take a look at the following list:

  • Check out any of the two national parks in Miami, one of which is the Everglades. A trip here will give you an unforgettable adventure of seeing a crocodile which you might have a glimpse of when you ride via speedboat through the swamps.
  • Go people watching in Ocean Drive, which is located just behind South Beach.
  • Head on to the massive Dolphin Stadium and watch a live game of the Miami Dolphin American Football team. Another venue for sports lovers is the American Airlines Arena where the Miami Heat basketball team plays.
  • Take your kids to the Miami Seaquarium where adults can have fun, too. It is located on Biscayne Bay which is home to more than 10,000 aquatic creatures.
  • Throw on your swimsuit and spend the day lounging by the South Beach, which is a famous celebrity hangout.
  • Your visit to Miami, Florida will never be complete without stopping by Walt Disney World, located in Lake Buena Vista near Orlando. The thrill rides, shows and great entertainment options are like no other.

 

 

A Quick Glimpse at the Multitude of Sights to See in Miami

First, let's have a quick glimpse at the multitude of sights to see in Miami, as well as the reasons why the city has become such a haven for celebrities. Basically, the city of Miami is divided into several districts including Downtown Miami, MiMo Boulevard, Design District, Brickell, Midtown, Edgewater, Coconut Grove, Little Havana and Overtown.

In addition to actors, aspiring models also have a place in the city of Miami because it's one of the hubs of the fashion industry. Celebrities who are not based in any district of Miami usually venture out in this area due to the sunny weather that Florida is famous for. The clubs, hip restaurants and the most happening bars frequented by the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan can all be found in Miami.

With a population of more than 5 million people, it's easy to see how almost everyone who you will get to meet in Miami would have a profession that is somehow related to the entertainment industry. Now, if you're a first time visitor in Miami, what are the top tourist spots that you should look forward to visiting? Dress in clothes that will keep you cool as you explore the crocodile-filled Everglades.

The Walt Disney Resort, the Dolphin Stadium, museums, parks, gardens and other recreational areas are great places to visit.

 

The Best Times to Visit Miami

Now that you already have an idea about the things that you need to look forward to if it is your first time visiting Miami, when is the best time to venture out into this hot city? The weather is great year-round but the best time for you to enjoy – or keep away from – the scorching heat of the sun is during the months of July to August. During these times, expect the heat to climb up to around 31 degrees Celsius.

If you don't want to spend a vacation in Miami where you would need to use the beach along with hundreds of other sun worshippers, visit the city during the months of October to January. Although there would be occasional rain showers, the weather is still warm and relatively dry.


Miami Nightlife

 

What about the Nightlife in Miami?

As mentioned earlier, Miami is where you will find some of the most exclusive Hollywood hangouts, the hottest bars and clubs within the city. This just goes to show how vibrant the nightlife in Miami is. The good news is that there is something that will perfectly suit the tastes of those who are looking for nightlife options.
For example, if you are looking forward to having a party atmosphere and spend an evening enjoying awesome entertainment, head down to South Beach. If you would like to see and be seen, head over to Ocean Drive which is home to some of the most exclusive bars and clubs in the world. This venue is also where huge music stars can be seen, so dress with your evening best.

If a family outing is what you're after, Ocean Drive will give you a wide array of dining opportunities to choose from. Take your pick from restaurants serving Mexican or Italian food. Those who would like to dance the night away should have a blast swaying their bodies to Latin rhythms at Kaffe Krystal on 72nd Street. For a more laid-back yet music-filled atmosphere, check out Café Van Dyke where you can simply chill out and enjoy some jazz or rhythm and blues.

Miami History & Culture

 

The History, Culture & Landscape of Miami

It was in 1896 that Miami was officially incorporated into Florida as a city. During the Second World War, the city became home to a fleet of American submarines placed to battle German forces. Over the years, the city has retained its reputation of being an important cultural, entertainment and financial center within Florida.

Another thing that makes Miami a truly exceptional city is its landscape. The center of the town is filled with skyscrapers, villas by the beach, and awe-inspiring celebrity homes. However, it is not lacking for natural charms as well because there's the Everglades which has a flurry of swamps, marshes and the occasional crocodile glimpses that you can see. Naturally, there's the ever-present sunny Florida beach life that both the locals and visitors enjoy year-round.

Lastly, the culture. Spending a holiday in Miami involves a lot of til-dawn-parties, festivals and other celebrations. Due to its vibrant nightlife, you will never be lacking for things to do and places to visit when heading over to Miami. The city is also famous for its Fourth of July celebration where fireworks and parties are the order of the day.

Every weekend or even during the weeknights when you are not swamped with work, head on to the many restaurants, pubs, music or dance clubs in Miami. Theater shows, concerts, recreational parks – there really is no limitation to the number of culture-related activities that you can do while visiting Miami.
