Have you ever tried to verbally convey the beauty of our city to your friends and family? No matter how detailed your description, we bet you still felt that your words did not do Miami justice. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. And, if that's true, then a virtual tour must be worth a million. That is why we are excited to announce that Miami is a city now within virtual grasp.
The free virtual tour is the brainchild of FlipKey, a TripAdvisor company that makes it "easy, safe, and fun to find and book the perfect place to stay." Using Google's Street View technology, the tour takes you from Marlins Park in Little Havana to Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach - taking the time to showcase its route as much as its six stops. The online resource also includes a brief description of each attraction and allows users to search for nearby rentals. So this Miami tourism season, when you struggle to describe our city to your prospective guests or to plan an itinerary for your visitors, FlipKey's got you covered.
