Flavor and World-Class Beaches

Miami is a multicultural melting pot that Time Out magazine described as "romantic, hip, arty, beachy. . . the place to live out your dreams."(1) Miami’s cosmopolitan energy and tropical climate make it a mecca for tourists and celebrities – and its pristine beaches and art deco architecture beckon some of the world’s top models and photographers for photo shoots. Miami is also one of the most popular college spring break destinations so our students can join the fun without leaving home.

The city’s international population – particularly its Cuban and Caribbean influences – creates an incubator of innovative cooking styles and flavors. Our South Florida location gives students the opportunity to sample local exotic flavors al fresco, under the palm trees. Or drink in the sights and sounds along the breathtakingly beautiful South Beach, which parties all night long with a dazzling mélange of clubs and restaurants. If clubbing and dining are Miami’s favorite indoor activities, shopping is certainly close behind. You can find everything from the upscale Bal Harbour Shops and major national retailers to trendy boutiques, flea market vintage and designer outlets at Miami’s many popular shopping destinations.
