There’s absolutely no better month to visit Miami than March. Hotels won’t be cheap and the bars will be packed, the month boasts perfect temperatures, zero hurricanes, and nonstop events. Start the month with Spring Break, where usually-snooty South Beach lets loose a little bit and welcomes a younger crowd. Move seamlessly from there into Miami Music Week, when every EDM artist you’ve heard of and probably 10,000 you haven’t play clubs, restaurants, art galleries, and the occasional Citgo station around the city. It all culminates with Ultra Music Festival, the biggest festival of its kind in the world.
Though partying is the big draw to March in Miami, it’s also time for the Miami Open, the sixth-biggest tournament of the season where you’ll see names like Federer, Nadal, and Williams in one of the coolest settings in the sport on the tropical island of Key Biscayne. Add in the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park and proximity to spring training, and March here is almost perfect.
