Things to do in Miami

While many people come to Greater Miami for its world-renowned hotels, restaurants and nightlife – and, of course, its spectacular beaches – you’ll find that this beautiful destination is home to all of this plus a range of other exciting activities.

Consider yourself an outdoor adventurer? Whether on land or in the water, you’ll find that nature surrounds you in Greater Miami. Go kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddle boarding at Oleta River State Park, Deering Estate or Crandon Park. Visit the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center to see its dunes, mangroves and seagrass beds – and have a chance to spot some of the 200 species of birds that live here or migrate through. Stroll past rare palms, tropical fruit and flowering trees at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Hop on a boat and sail through one of Miami’s natural treasures – Biscayne National Park, which is 95% underwater and includes the Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Experience true wilderness with a variety of hikes, scenic drives and guided tours available in Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve.

If you want to immerse yourself in the cultural side of Greater Miami, don’t hesitate to explore its art galleries, wander past its mind-blowing street art, spend an afternoon at The Bass or the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), or get a glimpse of local Art Deco architecture in South Beach’s Art Deco District with one of the Miami Design Preservation League’s walking tours. Check out attractions such as Zoo Miami, the Venetian Pool, Miami Seaquarium, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and many more. Enjoy a taste of Greater Miami’s diverse culinary scene at tantalizing restaurants, or spend an afternoon sipping wine and beer made from local fruits at Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery. If you want to live in the lap of luxury, book a well-deserved day at one of Greater Miami’s luxurious hotel spas or stroll through the stores at Aventura Mall, Brickell City Centre, Dadeland Mall or Bal Harbour Shops.
