Description

'For reliable and authoritative travel information reach for your Lonely Planet guide.' – The Times

Booming, beautiful, bottom-heavy Miami is one of the most vital and exciting cities in the country, and with Lonely Planet’s Cityguide on your iPhone, you won’t miss a beat. Politically, this city is part of the United States; culturally, it’s in Latin America, and from South Beach to Plaza De España we’ve scoured the barrios to bring you the best it has to offer. Our resident authors and eagle-eyed community of users co-operate to make sure you get the latest intelligence on the best places to eat, shop, dance, drink and sun yourself in this subtropical playground.

We’ve fully retooled this acclaimed title to get the best out of your iPhone, offering dynamic, interactive maps that allow you to plot your exact location and find the nearest points of interest; detailed chapters on South Florida culture and history, local food, sport and arts, and even a ‘Greendex’ that lets you minimise your environmental impact; vivid, high-quality images to give you a sense of what to expect; hundreds of independently-reviewed venues to suit all budgets; and interviews with locals to give you the inside dope on Magic City. And no matter how humid it gets, roaming internet costs won’t make you sweat: our Cityguides are fully stand-alone apps.
