  1. This town is to be avoided at any cost during spring break! Very crowded and expensive! Tampa is a much better alternative!

  2. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. That’s all I got to say and that’s all that comes to my mind when I think of Miami. Who else is with me?

  3. Miami is a great city for young adults with a great night life and many shopping options. The beaches are all very nice and spacious. However, it is quite difficult to get around the city unless you are driving and most of the dining options are pricey.
