Miami is both a remarkable place to visit and live. People come to Miami year-round because of the wonderful weather, pristine beaches, and mesmerizing culture. However, with all the alluring aspects, it is important that visitors come prepared. Here are five tips for traveling to Miami:

What is the Weather Like?

Miami is a city in the sunshine state, which means you can generally expect sunshine and great weather year-round. The average temperature October to March is in the upper 70’s and perfect for enjoying golf or going to the beach. From June through September the temperatures rise, the humidity increases, and the rain pours down. However, the weather in Miami is still some of the nicest in the United States. For up-to-the minute Miami weather, check out The Weather Channel for daily forecasts.

What Should I Pack?

Because the weather is warm annually, and it typically feels much hotter than what most people experience, it is important to pack for summer weather. Pack lightweight clothing, including dresses, shorts, and short sleeve shirts. Visitors favor flip-flops or sandals. However, if you plan to walk, make sure you pack a pair of light walking shoes. If you are traveling during the winter months, you will want to bring along a light jacket or pants to cover up if the temperature drops.

When is it Hurricane Season?

The highest chance of a hurricane to hit Miami is from August through October. However, when planning a vacation, it is important to know that hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30. For up-to-date information, check out Miami’s hurricane website.

Where Do I Fly Into the City?

There are three airports that service the Miami area: Miami International Airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and Palm Beach International Airport. All three airports are reputable and offer affordable flight rates. As far as which airport you should choose to fly into, it is all about the fare, and what airport offers the best rate from your hometown. However, you can easily find a great rate into Miami from anywhere in the United States because there are so many options.

Do I Need to Speak Spanish?

When you visit anywhere in the United States, you expect that English will be the language spoken to you. However, Miami’s population is more than 60 percent Hispanic. It is safe to say that having a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish would be beneficial. But do not fret if you do not speak Spanish. Miami is still a city in the United States, and you can easily get around speaking only English. If you do choose to brush up on your Spanish to take it upon yourself to converse with some locals, a helpful tip is for you to download the travel app Google Translate.

There are many things to consider when planning a trip to Miami, but these tips help make your planning a little easier and your trip enjoyable.
