When trying to determine the best time to visit Miami, folks often make one crucial mistake: assuming it doesn’t matter. After all, Miami is just one long, beautiful season, right? Incorrect. Very, very incorrect. Sure, we don’t technically have much of a winter and we see an awful lot of the sun, but Miami’s personality changes often throughout the year.
Anyone looking to escape bitter cold temperatures and gloomy days should visit in winter, by far the busiest season, when the best Miami beaches are just perfect. In fall, the city comes alive thanks to Art Basel Miami Beach. And spring and summer are for the great outdoors (or a bumpin’ Miami music festival), but also bring the threat of hurricanes. Any time of year is perfect to visit the new Time Out Market Miami (it’s air-conditioned), where our editors have curated all of the city’s best chefs under one roof.
So sit back and let’s decide when you should visit Miami.
