Oryx presents its insider’s tips for places to visit in January.
In January, discover Florida’s varied cultural and natural highlights, catch some spectator sports in Doha, and experience Melbourne’s cultural scene and varied calendar of events.


Explore Florida’s highlights

Enjoy some Florida sun on the barrier island of Miami Beach, with average temperatures of 16–24˚C in January. Art Deco Weekend 2015, January 16–18, celebrates 100 years of the good life on Miami Beach: from its beginnings as a coconut plantation running along the Atlantic Ocean, to becoming home to the most luxurious modern architecture and 21st-century entertainment. Take a trip to the Florida Keys, a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Miami, and take a guided eco tour, try a walking trail, or admire the aquatic life on North America’s only living coral barrier reef.

Sport in Doha

With pleasant weather in January, it’s the ideal time to catch a sporting event in Qatar, and two international events are taking place that month: Qatar ExxonMobil Open ATP World Tour 250, and Qatar 2015 24th Men’s Handball World Championship. Alternatively, enjoy a desert safari, shopping excursion, or museum visit, or take in the sights with a city tour or dhow cruise.
