January through April is Miami’s high season, as the regular influx of tourists prove. But budget-friendly (and crowd-wary) travelers are discovering the joys of the city’s quieter summer months, namely June through September. While it’s part of the so-called hurricane belt, making it vulnerable to inclement weather from June through November, as long as the sun is shining, Miami is open for business.
Miamians love their cars, and if you’re not renting a car, opt for taxi or car service. The Miami-Dade Transit system offers 800 Metrobuses that cost $2.25 per trip; the Metrorail is free, electrically-powered, and loops around Downtown and Brickell neighborhoods.
July is the hottest month, with an average high of 88°F (28°C). January is the coolest month, with an average temperature of 68°F (20°C).
Travelers who are not put off by the idea of humidity should visit June through November, when the best hotels are offering major deals and getting a table at the most popular restaurants and clubs is a snap.
