It’s all about the nature enthusiast and great outdoors.
South of the city, enjoy nature, rich cuisine, arts and entertainment in the intimacy of this family-oriented and culturally diverse area known as South Dade. Relax, unplug, exhale and escape the bustle of the city, in Miami's backyard. Discover the tastes of tropical fruits and farm-to-table joys. Experience a small town feeling with big city opportunities.
Two spectacular national parks, Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Park, offer natural beauty, tranquility and are teeming with wildlife. Fishing, boating, snorkeling and bird watching are just a few of the many nature-based activities for which the area is known.
Attractions in this area have a distinct character - fun, fascinating and unique. Imagine a Coral Castle, the clear origins of which remain unknown, a Fruit and Spice Park where you can roam through winding paths and pick up exotic fruit off the ground, an alligator farm, a 444-acre environmental, archaeological and historical preserve and the world-renowned Homestead-Miami Speedway, home to the final race of the NASCAR season.
