Miami is a fantastic city inside out. From the South Pointe to the northern counties, there is so much to see and do in the Magic City. It’s hard to narrow it down, but here’s a list of the top six places to visit in Miami.
American Airlines Arena
Watch the arena turn into a boiling furnace as Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and their teammates bring the heat to their opponents. A visit to Miami would be incomplete without experiencing a Heat game.
The atmosphere is unique, and the arena as much a venue for die-hard sports fans as it is for jetsetters and the coolest kids on the beach.
Lincoln Road Mall
Lincoln Road is a stylish promenade for shopping and dining. The mall extends over many blocks. Here, expect to find stores from most popular — and luxurious — brands. The open-air mall houses art galleries, restaurants, bars, and clubs. To top it off, it turns into a farmer’s market on Sundays.
Miami Seaquarium and Dolphin Harbor
Gazing upon pristine beaches is one thing, but experiencing the beauty of marine life is a whole other. The Seaquarium welcomes all nature lovers and offers them the chance to understand and appreciate marine life. The Seaquarium is also an opportunity to get up close to killer whales, sea-lions, and dolphins — and you can even swim with them if you wish.
Jungle Island is the place to be for adventurers of all sorts. More than a zoo, it’s a place to educate the masses about Miami’s fauna. Enjoy the aqua parks and the shows, and mingle with the animals while you learn everything about their natural habitat. Jungle Island is definitely a great idea for the whole family.
Art Deco District
It is almost unnecessary to describe the wonders of the Art Deco District, because visiting Miami — and especially South Beach — without discovering the district’s architectural marvels and their sublime pastel colors would be wrong. Starting at 5th street and extending to the 15th street, the Art Deco district houses many beautiful shops, beaches, parks, and other venues you must explore.
You can’t go wrong choosing to spend a day or two visiting the Miami coast, especially around South Beach. There are miles of warm blue waters and white sands, only cooled by the ocean breeze and the parasols and cabanas scattered around the beaches. Go for a jog under the palm trees or enjoy people-watching in the exciting nightlife scene of South Beach and Ocean Drive.
