Ring in a New Year with Miami in January!

Average temperature low and high: 60° - 76° 
Miami is a great place to start off the year and a great place to visit if you're trying to escape cold weather. With temperatures reaching the mid-70s, it's still warm enough to spend time outdoors and even at the beach! Consider making a reservation at a restaurant with outdoor seating or one of the city's many swank rooftop bars! January is also the month of Art Deco Weekend, an annual and free community cultural festival!
