Most Popular Beach for Overseas Visitors

More than 3 million overseas travelers come to Miami each year. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, that's more than all U.S. cities except New York and Los Angeles. Unlike those metropolises, the top attraction in Miami is undoubtedly the beach -- particularly 7-mile-long Miami Beach, famous for shopping, nightclubs and the cool architecture of the Art Deco Historic District in the South Beach neighborhood.
