Here is a list of things to do in the Magic City:
I have separated the suggestion below by geographic areas. Be sure to use the interactive map to familiarize yourself with each location, and to take distances into account when planning your visits.
Jungle Island (Great for kids!)
Beach on 22nd by W Hotel
Midtown Miami (Restaurants & Shops)
Miami Design District (Restaurants & Shops)
Dining: Estefan Kitchen (Gloria & Emilio Estefan's restaurant)
Mary Brickell Village - This is where my office is located (901 S. Miami Ave.)
This is a pretty solid list to get you acquainted with the different areas, if you haven't already experienced them. As you will notice, Miami has a lot to offer.
That said, parking can sometimes be a bit of an issue when getting around the city. As such, I highly recommend that you download the following apps:
PayByPhone Miami Parking App
Park Mobile Parking App
You can also consider these public transportation options.
You will want to get a SunPass for the tolls/Turnpike & some parkings if you haven't already done so.
This list is always growing, so be sure to visit it often for updates!
Do you know of a place or activity that should be on this list, then feel free to send me a message with your recommendation: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Miami is truly a wonderful city to explore, and I hope you do make the most of it while you are here. This is not an exhaustive list; it's only a good starting point if you are new to the area.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
