Live the high life in Hialeah

Discover real Cuban flavor and the world’s most beautiful race course, as you soak up the south Florida sun in Hialeah. This charming city is just a stone’s throw from Miami’s sparkling, white-sand beaches and famous attractions and, since it doesn’t come with the premium price tags of South Beach, you can splash out on a Hialeah vacation rental with its own private pool.

Things to do

The world’s most beautiful race course

If you are looking for entertainment in Hialeah, your first stop has to be its historic 1920s racecourse, located within the lush and verdant Hialeah Park. You can also enjoy a flutter at Hialeah Park’s stylish new casino next door. Hialeah Park is set within 200 acres of green, tropical landscaping and the infield area of the racetrack is a National Audubon Sanctuary, thanks to its resident flocks of pink flamingos. These exotic, colorful creatures have come to symbolize Florida and there is no more glamorous place to see them.


Explore Hialeah’s Cuban heritage

While you’re here, you must explore the city’s vibrant Cuban roots – Hialeah has a higher proportion of Cuban Americans than anywhere in the country – which makes exploring Cuban culture in Exile Heritage Park or enjoying a spicy Cuban sandwich here absolutely de rigueur. Why not work up an appetite at the Miami Watersports Complex at Hialeah Gardens? Activities here include wakeboarding, skiing, wake-surfing, wake-skating, tubing, or slalom on the 90-acre freshwater lake.


Enjoy the Florida sunshine

You can enjoy a stay at a Hialeah vacation rental whatever the time of year. May through October are the warmest months in Hialeah, while November through May are the driest months. You can expect temperatures in the 70˚Fs and 80˚Fs throughout the languorous, tropical summer months and year-round warmth.

Natural features

Gateway to the Florida Keys

From your Hialeah vacation rental, you are just a short drive away from Miami’s beautiful beaches, and the romantic unspoiled beauty of the Keys. From the Art Deco glamor and party vibes of South Beach, to the family-friendly Miami beach, or wild beauty of the national parks, there are ocean views aplenty. Drive across Rickenbacker Causeway over the turquoise sweep of Biscayne Bay and you can admire the tropical mangroves, beaches and forests of Crandon Park and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. Or head south to the Everglades National Park, just an hour away.
