Traveling to Miami for business can be bad for business: just one look at the shimmering water from the window of your private jet and you’ll want to cancel all your meetings and hit the beach.
This South Florida city is a tropical oasis that never sleeps. With all the flavors of Latin America, stunning architecture, and no shortage of nightlife, you’ll want to make some extra room in your schedule to get a taste of the real Miami beyond the boardroom.
Where to Fly Into
Miami International Airport sees upwards of 45 million travelers each year, making it the 13th busiest airport in the U.S. The good news is that if you travel by private business jet, you can skip the crowds and lines in favor of the Opa-Locka Executive Airport or the Kendall Tamiami Executive Airport, both of which are within a 30-mile radius from the heart of Miami. The time savings can add up quickly, giving you a little extra time to work or play.
Things to See and Do
A business trip to Miami should include some downtime to take advantage of this amazing city. Visit the Venetian Pool, a popular swimming spot that’s as refreshing as much as it is historic. Stroll through the famed Art Deco district that echoes the old Florida motif and has made Miami architecture so famous.
Other top sites include the Bayside Marketplace, Perez Art Museum, Matheson Hammock Park, and Espanola Way, one of the premium shopping districts in the city.
The city is also bustling at night: street performers, Latin dance clubs, bars and restaurants, and breweries abound. The food scene is reason enough to call it a day early.
Where to Stay
Finding lodging in Miami can be difficult, and not for lack of choices. Naturally, the Miami waterfront is dominated with lux hotel options, including the famed Hotel Beaux Arts, Autograph Collection, Ritz Carlton, and the Mandarin Oriental.
The hotel you choose can have a lot to do with how well you perform while on your business trip. Rooftop pools, saunas, steam rooms, and fitness centers can help you repair your mind and body after a long day of traveling and working, while on-site fine dining restaurants ensure you never have to go far to sample the best flavors of Miami.
Plan a Day Trip
Miami’s unique locale puts it in close proximity to other top destinations. If you have a day between meetings, consider taking a private jet to West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, or even the Bahamas to extend your adventures. Each of these sites is less than an hour’s flight by private jet and give you access to more restaurants, beaches, golf courses, and other experiences to maximize your trip.
