When staying in Miami, Florida, one of the biggest cities in the USA, it is nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the urbanised city centre. A cool place to base yourself is North Bay Village which is essentially housed on two islands, Harbor Island and Treasure Island. North Bay Village offers relaxation and good food plus scintillating views for sunrise and sunset. For an ideal base, check out the Best Western on the Bay Inn & Marina.
