One of the most popular cities in the U.S. is Miami, and every year, thousands of travelers visit this stunning city teeming with a vibrant atmosphere and world-class attractions. If you want to get a dose of culture, great food, and awesome adventures, then Miami is the place for you.

For a first-timer, it might get pretty confusing as to what to do first and what activity to skip. Your Miami adventure must only be filled with lots of laughs and good memories, therefore, successfully planning your itinerary is a must. Here are the best activities to do in Miami this year:

Explore the Art Deco District during evenings. Miami's Art Deco District, being nearby South beach, is a popular hang-out for locals and tourists, according to Travel Photo Discovery. But at night, the place becomes even more alive. Bring your friends and enjoy a casual night out eating great food and drinking yummy cocktails. Or if you want a little more fun, go bar-hopping and explore the restaurants and bars lined up in the area.

Visit the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Even if you're not an architecture buff, you'll have a hard time not appreciating the beauty of this place. This Renaissance-style villa is set within a beautifully designed courtyard—being inside seems like you're in Europe. According to The Crazy Tourist, over 1,100 craftsmen were imported from Europe to get this 28-acre domain in a perfect state.

Fill your hungry stomach on a Miami food tour. Experiencing the local cuisine is a good way to really get to know the place you're traveling, and in Miami, a bunch of food tours will surely get your taste buds clamoring and your stomach growling. There's a variety of food tours to choose from, such as the Little Havana Food Tour, South Beach Food Tour, and the Miami City Food Tour.

Get a tan in Miami Beach. Of course, a Miami visit isn't complete if you wouldn't step foot in Miami Beach. If you want to get to know and befriend some locals, then join them in frolicking in the sands and swimming in the waters. Its accessibility makes it popular for locals and tourists alike looking for a quick beach fix, and if you're an early riser, watching the sun rise in this spot is really special.
