The 26 Best Things to Do in Miami

By Terry Ward and Sara Liss

The 26 Best Things to Do in Miami From Little Havana Food Tours to Monkey Jungles

First things first: You came to Miami for some sun, sand and surf, and you’re going to get it—with a side of next-level people-watching, too, of course. And if that's all you want (along with a cold glass of your preferred fruity cocktail or a classic mojito), that's fine, but Miami's beaches and rum drinks are barely the beginning of what the Magic City has to offer. From the highest of high-end designer shops and cutting-edge galleries to all types of walking tours, salsa dancing, unique neighborhoods, museums, and even animal reserves to captivate any kids in your group, this city is the full, sunny package. Here, our picks for the best things to do in Miami.

Philipp and Patricia Frost Museum of Science miami exhibit shark

Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science Arrow

The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is a temple to learning in Downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park that's as vast as it is comprehensive. With an aquarium, a planetarium, and two science galleries, this distinguished destination is always busy, but it's big enough to accommodate even the largest rainy-day crowds. Though the exhibitions are just as interesting to adults as they are to kids, the Frost Museum is definitely a family-friendly place. Don’t miss a trip up the elevator to the sixth floor’s rooftop terrace for sprawling views of downtown Miami.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden Arrow

Spanning nearly 84 acres, the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden is filled with tropical plants, flowers, and trees, including extremely rare species like the petticoat palm. Every square inch of the facility has been thoughtfully designed and constructed, making it easy to navigate. The best way to see a little of everything, though, is by hopping aboard one of the 30-minute tram tours, which run year-round, twice an hour. Don't miss the Wings of the Tropics exhibition, where 40 species of butterflies engage in a colorful display of acrobatics all around you.

Wynwood Walls Arrow

Known as Miami's most Instagrammed place, this outdoor "gallery" of artwork by graffiti artists and muralists that spreads across warehouses and shop exteriors is a nice foil to Miami's museums . And it can be a quick stop. It'll only take about twenty minutes to hit all the art at Wynwood Walls, including murals by Shepard Fairey (the artist who designed Obama's "Hope" poster). It's a relatively small outdoor space so it's easy to navigate, and there are plenty of benches or rocks to sit on and take it all in. The Walls recently instituted a ticket policy whereby Adult admission is $12, students are $5 and children under 12 are free.

Art Deco Miami

Miami Design Preservation League: Art Deco Walking Tour Arrow

Located on the beach on Ocean Drive, right in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco District, the Art Deco Museum and Welcome Center is where architecture enthusiasts can pop in and learn more about the iconic, colorful buildings that give this neighborhood its personality. While just looking up and admiring the glamorous geometric details and chrome accents is enough for some people, the Miami Design Preservation League—a nonprofit advocacy group that fights to maintain the city’s architectural character—offers daily walking tours of the neighborhood at 10:30 a.m.

Known as one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in a city brimming with them, the barrio called Allapattah, just west of Wynwood, keeps adding artsy attractions to its ever-growing lineup of thrift shops, hipster bars and Latin restaurants (including Dominican and Honduran eateries and a fab Mexican taqueria). The famed Rubell Museum —six former industrial buildings that hold a collection of world-class contemporary works by the likes of Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman and many celebrated newcomers, too—is Allapattah’s heaviest cultural hitter. And right across from the Rubell Museum, a new (Spring 2021) walk-through art experience called Superblue immerses visitors in exhibitions through music and visuals in a way you’ll have to force yourself not to Instagram or Tik-Tok at every turn.

Española Way Arrow

With its twinkling string lights, Mediterranean revival architecture and lively sidewalk cafes this palm tree-lined pedestrian-only street is a charming throwback to Miami’s historic neighborhoods of the 20s. Built in1925, the two-block corridor between Washington and Pennsylvania Avenues was designed to resemble the romantic Mediterranean villages of Spain and France. Here, buildings are made of chalky pink stucco with Spanish tile roofs where sidewalk cafes are shaded by striped awnings. Strolling along the promenade you’ll hear everything from salsa, samba, jazz and techno rhythms wafting from a variety of restaurants—some of which are excellent, and others which cater to a less-discerning crowd—but all are usually packed on weekends and most weeknights. The street hosts weekly programming from flamenco and salsa dancing to yoga and an open air local makers market. A few charming boutique hotels blend in with the lively atmosphere here, offering a unique jumping-off point for visiting and exploring South Beach.

exterior of glass building. trees in foreground

Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Miami Arrow

Called ICA Miami for short, this is another pillar of the Miami art scene, located in the Miami Design District. The building has a bold and eye-catching metallic facade and was designed by Spanish architect firm Aranguren + Gallegos Arquitectos. Permanent and temporary exhibits with a focus on emerging and local artists; for Miami, this means many Cuban-born and Latin American artists. You don't need hours at this museum, like is the case at others in town, so for people who just want to dabble in Miami's arty side during a vacation, it makes a perfect stop. Interiors are as modern as exterior with brightly lit open spaces. The permanent collections has works by Pablo Picasso, Yves Klein, and Roy Lichtenstein, among others.

South Beach Miami

South Beach Arrow

South Beach, the quintessential Miami experience, is a public beach that's free and open to everyone. It's also easily accessible by foot, though the most scenic part is the southernmost section, via Lummus Park , which runs along Ocean Drive from 5th to 15th streets. Because it's been used as a backdrop for just about every movie and TV show set in Miami, you'll feel that everything on South Beach looks familiar, including the kiosks where you can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas. Even if you’re not big on sitting in the sun, it’s worth taking a stroll up or down the beach to see what all the fuss is about. If you wait until the late afternoon (around 4 p.m.) the crowds will have thinned out a bit.

Faena Theater. red

Faena Theater Arrow

An opulent cabaret-style theater inspired by Europe's grand opera houses that harkens to a bygone area, Faena manages to feel totally decadent, sumptuous, and Miami. The theater's original live production is a cabaret-style spectacle called Tryst—a Lovers' Rendezvous that is perfect for the red velvet surrounds and has elements of the circus (more like cirque) and burlesque. Big names have performed intimate shows here, too, including Bon Jovi, Macy Gray, Miike Snow, Grace Potter, Andra Day and many others. There are only 150 seats in the audience, and there's also regular jazz programming.

Deep Sea Fishing Biscayne Bay Miami

Therapy-IV Deep Sea Fishing Arrow

Sure, the water in Miami is pretty to gaze at from your lounge chair . But give yourself a real experience and hop aboard Captain Stan Saffan's 58-foot sportfish boat, with his crew for a day (or half-day) of deep-sea fishing. It’s not just any old tourist who decides that spending a day at sea fishing for marlin, sailfish, or hammerhead sharks qualifies as a good time. So if you’re paired with a couple of strangers, it’s safe to assume you’ll have at least a love of the ocean in common.

Design District Miami

Miami Design District Arrow

With dozens of shops, boutiques, showrooms, galleries and restaurants, you’d be hard-pressed to not find whatever you're looking for in the Miami Design District —provided you're looking for something delicious or with a designer tag, that is. In addition to a wide range of popular clothing boutiques, there’s an impressive lineup of handbags and accessories (Louis Vuitton, Hermès); jewelry and watches (Rolex, Tiffany & Co.); and home furnishings (Jonathan Adler, Versace Home). L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon and vegetable-driven restaurant Le Jardinier are among the district’s most sought after tables. And the chef-driven Mia Market food hall is a more casual must-stop. If you can dream it, you can find it. And even if you’re just browsing, the window-shopping and people-watching are pretty great, too.

Cape Florida Lighthouse Miami

Cape Florida Lighthouse Arrow

Though it sits on a tranquil sweep of sandy beach within Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on Key Biscayne, this pristinely restored lighthouse gives a glimpse into a tumultuous side of South Florida's history. The regal lighthouse, now defunct, tells stories of nautical adventures, Caribbean slave smuggling, and attacks by Native American Seminole tribes. A knowledgeable park ranger conducts half-hour tours several days a week during which you’ll learn about the monument's history as the oldest structure in Dade County (it was built in 1825, twenty years before Florida became a state). When visiting make sure to wear comfortable shoes , as climbing the 109 steps to the top is a mini-workout.

Perez Art Museum Miami exterior hanging garden entrance

Pérez Art Museum Miami Arrow

Though the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is focused on 20th- and 21st-century international art, and a large permanent collection of works (over 3,000 spread across 8 galleries) by such acclaimed artist as Jenny Holzer and Sam Gilliam. The museums spans 120,000 square feet inside but is best known for its facade, with hanging gardens among its most iconic features. Current exhibitions explore things like post-colonial condition and Africa and African-diaspora art; the museum is in a constant conversation with the current topics consuming society, as well as overlooked and worthy subjects. Timed tickets must be reserved online in advance of visits, so the museum doesn't feel crowded. Elevators and ramps for people with mobility issues. Don't miss a swing in the sculpture garden on the hammock-like net swings overlooking Biscayne Bay.

Upper Buena Vista Miami

Upper Buena Vista Arrow

 A 120-year-old majestic oak tree serves as the focal point of this funky shopping destination just north of the Design District . The Bodhi "wish tree," as it’s called, is based on a Buddhist tradition of designating a tree to be used as the object of wishes and offerings. In addition to the tree, you’ll find gardens and walkways that connect the businesses and micro-boutiques that make up the neighborhood. It's free to visit, and offers a peaceful respite from Miami's sometimes frenetic urban core. 

Miami Landmark Jewish Museum of Florida

Jewish Museum of Florida - FIU: The South Beach Jewish Walking Tour Arrow

Sponsored by Florida International University and run through the Jewish Museum of Florida, this look at the history of the Jewish people and Jewish culture in Miami begins at the museum itself, a historic former synagogue. Small groups first watch a short video presentation and then get a look at some of the main artifacts (if you're interested in the museum itself, you can return later). Then begins a two-hour walk around a 10-block radius, with stops at various significant buildings such as the Lord Balfour Hotel. The tour is a great palate cleanser for the decadence and glitz of Miami Beach. It’s a humbling, grounding experience in the best way, and gives some much-needed cultural context to this part of the city. 

Lincoln Road Miami mall

Lincoln Road Mall Arrow

Running almost the entire width of South Beach , Lincoln Road Mall is a mile-long pedestrian mall and one of Miami’s favorite spots for outdoor activities—besides the beach, which is just a few blocks away. Designed by Morris Lapidus, the architect behind The Fontainebleau hotel, the strip maintains a fun, Miami Modern (MiMo) style of the past, but with more than 100 fashionable shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes. Retail options range from mall mainstays like the Gap and American Eagle to high-end names like All Saints and John Varvatos. But the mall doesn't close down when the shops do. The restaurants and bars keep Lincoln Road buzzing into the wee hours.

Ancient Spanish Monastery Miami

Ancient Spanish Monastery Arrow

Originally known as The Monastery of Our Lady, Queen of the Angels, this ancient monastery, a true architectural wonder, started life in the year 1133—in northern Spain. It was eventually purchased by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who had each structure dismantled, stone-by-stone, packed into more than 11,000 crates, and shipped to New York. After sitting in a warehouse in Brooklyn for more than a quarter-century, the crates were purchased by new owners who understood the stones’ potential value as a tourist attraction. They spent nearly two years relocating and rebuilding the structure in North Miami.

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami Florida USA

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County Arrow

Designed by architect Cesar Pelli in 2006, Miami’s iconic performing arts center was built on the site of a former Sears department store, of which a seven-story Art Deco tower is preserved, now home to a small cafe and book store. Composed of two imposing buildings that take inspiration from beige-colored shells, the 2,400-seat Ziff Ballet Opera House and 2,200-seat Knight Concert Hall are connected by Thomson Plaza for the Arts, an outdoor public gathering space. The complex also includes the Carnival Studio Theater, an intimate venue for experimental productions. The buildings are united by a grand oval-shaped public plaza that stretches across Biscayne Boulevard. A popular gathering space with outdoor performances and events, the plaza is an inviting oasis with lush garden terraces, fountains, shade trees, and greenery.

Venetian Pool Miami

Venetian Pool Arrow

Pictures don't do the Venetian Pool—one of the most beautiful public pools in the world—justice, but trust us: it's worth the trip to Coral Gables just to experience the complex in person. Be warned that the pool gets very crowded on hot days, particularly when kids are out of school (although no one under three is allowed), so your best bet is to call ahead to see if there's room. Or, better yet, get there early. You'll get a head start on sunbathing; just be sure to bring sunscreen .

Deering Estate Miami

Deering Estate Arrow

The Deering Estate, a sprawling 444-acre environmental and archaeological preserve fronting Biscayne Bay, is dotted with historic houses, outdoor activities like nature hikes, paddling (kayaks and paddleboards are available for rent), cruises into Biscayne National Park and biking, and a robust schedule of arts programs, including concerts, movies, and theater. A regular haunt for locals and visitors alike, the estate is a fantastic way to get to know the history of Miami and its commitment to environmentalism. It's also yet another way to spend time (where else?!) outside.

Calle Ocho Little Havana Miami

Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour Arrow

Since 2010, Miami Culinary Tours has orchestrated deep dives into some of Magic City’s most famous neighborhoods, Little Havana among them. The heart of Miami’s Cuban population, the area includes Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street), a dynamic stretch famous for Domino Park, strong cafecitos, and counter-service croquetas. You’ll get to experience all of that and more over the course of two-and-a-half hours on this popular walking tour, which hits several Cuban hotspots . Just be sure to book online; tickets must be purchased in advance.

Miami Monkey Jungle

Monkey Jungle Arrow

Built in 1933, this is less a zoo than it is a conservation and observation park. In Southwest Miami the jungle is home to around 500 primates, covering some 18 different species of monkeys and apes. Guests navigate the 30-acre park through a series of tunnels—the park’s tagline is "Where the humans are caged and the monkeys run wild." The animal inhabitants live in semi-natural habitats where they can live as they would in the wild. It’s perfect for families with young children who may not have seen wildlife up this close before, and the information and habitats will also pique the interest of natural science enthusiasts. 

Default

Artechouse Arrow

A digital art gallery mixing science, technology and art to wondrous effect Artechouse features new-media art displays through light, color, and sound, which viewers move throughout. Open to the public in Miami Beach, the concept originated in Washington DC, so this is an outpost. The space is meant to introduce people to art and technology and inspire a dialog between the two topics and how they're connected; it's a digital art gallery which viewers move throughout, becoming a part of the art in an immersion experience. The price tag isn't exorbitant, and it offers a surprising and different experience after a day on the nearby beaches. Anyone into digital art or the nexus of technology and art or new media shouldn't miss this.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens exterior

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens Arrow

If you want a little Italian flare during your trip to Miami, you'll find it here. Now a national landmark, the Vizcaya is a living museum dedicated to the early days of Miami’s rise as a destination and to old-school European design. The waterfront home’s many treasures include more than 2,500 antique art objects and furnishings; 10 acres of immaculately landscaped gardens, including 2,000 orchids; and 25 acres of endangered forest lands. It's easy to spend several hours at Vizcaya without getting bored.

South Pointe Pier Miami

South Pointe Park Arrow

As much as locals might have liked to keep South Pointe Park under wraps, it was only a matter of time before word got out. The park is located at the southernmost tip of South Beach just a few steps from Joe’s Stone Crab , the legendary restaurant that everyone's got to try at least once for Florida’s finest seasonal crustacean. While it’s technically just a city park, this 17-acre haven offers much more than a couple of benches and pretty palm trees to lounge beneath. There’s beach access, a fishing pier, a playground for kids and lots more green space for relaxing. Also, the by-the-hour parking spaces here are not only usually more available than elsewhere in South Beach’s many pay lots but also far less pricey.

Pinecrest Gardens Arrow

A botanical delight brimming with lush foliage, trees, plants and birds, this city park has plenty of things to do including a splash pad and a petting zoo for kids, plus a botanical garden and an outdoor theater. Established in the 1930’s and originally the home of Parrot Jungle the Village of Pinecrest acquired the 14-acre park in 2002, securing its place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011 and transforming it into a venue for events and education. Beyond the breathtaking and massive Banyan trees, the hardwood hammocks, and a serene cypress slough and orchids winding up tree limbs, the park has a full schedule of programming that keeps visitors interested throughout the year, from concerts in the 530-seat amphitheater, to rotating art exhibits to horticulture lectures and holiday festivities. A weekly Sunday Farmer’s Market includes a free community yoga class.

  • valerie r 2 contributions 0 4.0 of 5 bubbles Definitely recommend After not receiving any message about a pick up time, we were upset to awake to the driver being at our hotel to pick us up. We were afraid it may have been a "scam". It DEFINITELY is NOT a scam. We were able to reschedule for the next day and it was awesome! There was more down time and waiting than anticipated but what can you expect for a park outing on Saturday. None of that was under our tour guides control. Christian was witty, very knowledgeable and energetic. He maneuvered the crazy Miami traffic with skill. Definitely recommend! Read more Review of: 60 min.

South Beach, Miami Beach

Located on a barrier island and connected to the mainland by a series of bridges, Miami Beach is a mix of quiet neighborhoods, lively entertainment-focused areas, and long stretches of soft-sand beaches. The southernmost portion of the island is the historic and action-packed area known as South Beach, and this is where you'll find many of the top attractions and things to do.

One of the biggest attractions in Miami Beach is the Art Deco Historic District , with pastel buildings from the 1930s and early 1940s sporting classic neon signs. An expensive tourist district, this area features numerous beachfront restaurants, shops, hotels, and plenty of sunbathing opportunities.

Miami Beach

The main street in this area is Ocean Drive , a section of road located along the oceanfront and home to some beautiful Art Deco buildings. Ocean Drive was closed to all but pedetrian traffic in May of 2020 but in 2022 opened to one-way vehicle traffic from 15th Street to 5th Street.

One block inland, running parallel with Ocean Drive, is Collins Avenue . Collins Avenue is actually State Road A1A and is the main street in Miami Beach, joining numerous neighborhoods.

If you are looking to stay in this area, see our selection of recommended luxury, mid-range, and budget hotels .

Miami Beach Map - Tourist Attractions

Even if you have no interest in the beach, the Art Deco Historic District is worth a trip out to Miami Beach. This architectural style, popular in the 1930s and 40s, dominates the trendy South Beach neighborhood .

These uniquely designed buildings, in a range of pastel colors and displaying large neon signs, were built following a devastating hurricane that struck in 1926. Many are hotels and restaurants, most of which have been beautifully restored. Along some of the main streets, awnings on the lower level of these buildings provide shade for outdoor dining areas. Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue are the two main streets through the area.

If you are interested in staying in one of these historic gems, many of the Art Deco buildings still function as hotels and have much more character than modern hotels. Some good options are the National Hotel Miami Beach or the more moderately priced Hotel Breakwater South Beach .

South Beach

Located at the southern end of Miami Beach is the always action-packed neighborhood of South Beach. This is what many people have in mind when they plan a beach vacation to Miami. The wide section of beach that fronts the ocean along Ocean Drive is one of the big attractions. Often full of people in summer, this is the most popular beach in Miami and one of the top beaches in Florida .

This is a place to see and be seen, but also a place to swim and enjoy the shallow waters, escape the heat, and soak up the sun. A paved walk is set well back from the beach, and in behind is Ocean Drive. Art Deco buildings line the streets and offer luxury hotel rooms and a good mix of dining options.

South Beach is home to several popular festivals and events held throughout the year. By day, it's a great place to wander around or hang out on the beach. At night it comes alive with dining and nightlife.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

This National Historic Landmark, set on 28 acres, was the luxurious winter home of 20th-century industrialist, James Deering. Built in 1916, the mansion features 34 rooms arranged around a central courtyard.

It took more than 1,100 workers and craftsmen to complete the Vizcaya project, many of whom were brought over from Europe to ensure authenticity in design.

The Italian Renaissance-style villa is filled with an impressive collection of European furniture and decorative arts from the 15th to 19th centuries.

The grounds and gardens contain beautiful Italian and French fountains, pools, and sculptures. A breakwater at the base of the steps leading into Biscayne Bay is an ornately carved barge, featuring female figures.

Address: 3251 South Miami Avenue, Miami, Florida

Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park, just a short drive from Miami, protects one of Florida's most unique natural features. These swamplands, covering about 1.5 million acres, are home to alligators, crocodiles, snakes, and birds. This whole area is essentially a shallow river flowing out to the ocean.

Within the park is an informative Visitors Center, as well as walking trails and boardwalks for wildlife viewing. One of the most popular walking trails in the park is the Anhinga Trail , which leaves from the Royal Palm Visitor Center. This trail is less than a mile long but leads through terrain where visitors are likely to see alligators and other animals. This trail is wheelchair accessible and non-strenuous.

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience the Everglades is on an airboat tour. These high-speed boat trips take visitors out into the marshes and streams to see alligators and other wildlife. The Miami Everglades Airboat Adventure with Transport half-day tour provides transport from your hotel to the park, and includes a 30-minute airboat ride, a live alligator show at the Everglades Alligator Farm, and transport back to your hotel.

Waterfront at Bayside Marketplace

Bayside Marketplace is a large outdoor-style mall with more than 120 specialty and tourist shops, numerous cafes and restaurants, and daily live entertainment. Visitors will find some well-known chain stores, as well as many unique, one-of-a-kind places. The marketplace draws locals as well as tourists.

As may be evident in the name, the mall is located along Miami's waterfront, looking out over docks and boats. Many people come here simply to soak up the atmosphere. Tour boats leave from here, visiting locations around Biscayne Bay. There is also a water taxi service to Miami Beach and downtown hotels located in the area.

A brand new attraction has risen at Bayside Market: the Skyviews Miami Observation Wheel . Towering 200 feet in the air, this giant Ferris wheel has 42 climate-controlled passenger gondolas plus one glass-floored VIP version. The views out over Biscayne Bay and Miami you'll see during your 15-minute ride are spectacular.

Address: 401 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, Florida

Little Havana and Calle Ocho

Little Havana, the Cuban district of Miami , isn't known for its wealth of tourist attractions but more for its distinctive cultural scene. Restaurants and specialty food shops line the streets, and Latin music drifts through the air. Locals socialize in the open spaces.

Murals grace the walls of buildings, showing important Cuban figures and scenes of daily life. Calle Ocho is the main thoroughfare running through the district and home to much of the activity, but Little Havana spreads well beyond, into the surrounding streets and avenues. For people-watching, the area offers a great deal of entertainment. And, of course, this is the place to visit for Cuban cuisine or perhaps, a surprise to most visitors, a great haircut at one of the numerous barber shops.

The Calle Ocho Festival , held in March, is a celebration of Cuban culture and the largest of its kind in the world. Over the years this street festival has expanded to include more Latin American cultures and is now a great way to experience Latin American music and Caribbean cuisine.

Bayfront Park

Bayfront Park, on the east side of Biscayne Boulevard, is a 32-acre green space, adjacent to the Bayside Marketplace. The park has several interesting monuments and sculptures. One of the unique features is the electronically controlled Pepper Fountain.

Other highlights include the Challenger Memorial , commemorating the crew of the Challenger spacecraft; the Light Tower , an amphitheater used for musical performances of all kinds; and a children's playground. Locals often come here just to run or walk on the paved trails.

A waterfront trail extends from Bayfront Marketplace to the park past the FPL Solar Amphitheater. Near the park are other interesting attractions including the Freedom Tower, the Kaseya Center, and Maurice A. Ferré Park.

Address: 301 North Biscayne Blvd, Miami, Florida

Perez Art Museum

The Perez Art Museum, known locally as the PAMM, occupies a section of prime real estate on Miami's waterfront. Inside an architecturally stunning building designed by Herzog & de Mueron is housed artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The museum has been celebrating art from local and international artists for over 25 years. In addition to the permanent collection, the PAMM hosts a regular procession of temporary exhibits. The interior of the building is almost a work of art in itself. Light, airy spaces along with incredible views out over Biscayne Bay invoke a sense of calm and introspection, helping to aid in your appreciation of the artwork. You'll find the permanent exhibits are primarily displayed on the first and second floors; the temporary exhibits are usually on the second floor.

The PAMM has a well-regarded on-site restaurant named Verde. Settle in at a table either inside or outside on the expansive patio and enjoy a light lunch while you soak up the fantastic views out over the water.

Save a few dollars on parking (flat rate of $15) by combining a visit here with a stop in at the Phillip and Patricia Museum of Science located right next door.

Address: 1103 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, Florida

Official site: https://www.pamm.org/

Miami Seaquarium

Located on the Rickenbacker Causeway on the way to Key Biscayne, the Miami Seaquarium is a good place to take the family for an afternoon of entertainment and education. This aquatic facility is home to a wide variety of sea creatures, including killer whales, dolphins, stingrays, seals, and penguins among many, many others.

The Seaquarium offers a variety of animal shows; however, the killer whale and dolphin shows are currently suspended as of writing. But don't despair, Salty the Sealion is still performing! If you'd like to get up close and personal, animal encounters are available for an additional fee. These include three options for interacting with dolphins, one with penguins, and the opportunity to swim with seals.

In addition to the shows and animal encounters, the Seaquarium has an extensive number of educational animal exhibits and an area devoted to marine conservation.

Note that a $10 fee is charged for parking in addition to the cost of entry to the Seaquarium.

Address: 4400 Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, Florida

Walkway in front of the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science

Ideal for a rainy day or if you are looking for something to do off the beach, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is jam-packed with interesting things for all ages.

The museum is divided into four areas: The aquarium is all about the ocean, with a focus on South Florida. The planetarium helps bring an understanding of the solar system through interactive displays and shows. In the North and West wings, other permanent and traveling exhibits help to explain the world we live in.

Across all areas, displays are interactive and fun, and the viewing areas in the aquarium are exceptional.

Address: 1101 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida

Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens

Miami is a green city. Lush tropical vegetation grows here with abandon, nourished by the frequent rain, warm temperatures, and sunny days. One of the best places to see the wonderful show that Mother Nature puts on is at the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens. Originally founded in 1938, the entire organization is now run by passionate volunteers and is a first-class operation.

Extensive grounds are spread out over 83 acres, allowing you to walk for miles. If that sounds a bit daunting, take one of the 45 minute-long tram tours instead. The tours are led by a knowledgeable guide and provide a fascinating insight to the gardens. Even if you are only slightly interested in plants, you'll find something interesting in one of the 27 exhibits and collections.

Owing to the size of the gardens, it's important to plan out your visit. Most of the attractions are in the southwest area of the gardens, reached by walking straight to the tram stop area from the main entrance and then turning right. Along the way, look down at the pathway to see all manner of leaves imprinted in the cement. This pathway will take you past interesting viewpoints and the entrance to the Richard H. Simmons Rainforest area. Be sure to take a stroll through this area, where mist snakes along the pathway, and rain showers take place among the plants.

Beyond the rainforest area are the Clinton Family Conservatory and the Wings of the Tropics exhibit. Enter the building, and find yourself in a wonderland of colorful butterflies and tropical flowers. Have your camera ready to try to snap a picture of the stunning blue morpho butterfly.

Spread throughout the gardens are 11 sculptures, including two by the acclaimed glass artists Dale Chihuly. A good spot to grab a light lunch is the Glasshouse Café. Tables are spread among the greenery, and it's a pleasant spot to refresh and recharge.

Unless you've ventured further afield, you may find yourself walking back past one of the more unusual plant displays in the gardens: the Lougheed Spiny Forest of Madagascar. Large trees with spikes definitely discourage any touching! Nearby is a giant baobab tree dating from the mid 1930s, planted by the founder, David Fairchild.

Address: 10901 Old Cutler Road, Miami, Florida

Lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park

Miami is fortunate in the fact that it has one of Florida's most beautiful state parks only a bridge ride away. Saved from development by Bill Baggs in the 1960s, this perfectly preserved wilderness is a perfect place for a family beach day trip. One of the main attractions is the 1.25-mile-long soft-sand beach, providing amazing views out over the Atlantic Ocean.

The park is long and relatively narrow, and where you park depends on what you'd like to do. If you just want to hit the beach, park near access #6. If you'd like to visit the beach and visit the historic lighthouse, park at access #7. Fishing more your thing? Park at the far end of the road in the parking lot by the washrooms, and walk out to the fishing docks or set up on the seawall.

The park is also a migratory bird hot spot. To have a chance at seeing birds, walk Robin's Birding Trail.

Address: 1200 South Crandon Blvd, Key Biscayne, Florida

Official site: https://www.floridastateparks.org/parks-and-trails/bill-baggs-cape-florida-state-park

Hobie Beach

One thing you learn pretty quickly about Miami is that it can be an expensive place. Road tolls, restaurant prices, park and attraction admissions – the costs can add up quite quickly. For a delightful beach spot that's gentle on the pocketbook, head to Hobie Beach.

It's easily located on the Rickenbacker Causeway, and parking here is, amazingly, free! Soft white sand and gentle waves (if any) make this one of the most accessible beaches in the area. Hobie Beach is dog friendly – pooches can run leash-free here on the sand and in the water.

Note that Hobie Beach exists in two locations. The first location you come to as you cross the causeway is the area that rents sailboats and is popular with the windsurfing and sailing crowd. The beach here is narrow and rocky. Farther along is the main beach area described above.

Zoo Miami

Zoo Miami houses more than 3,000 wild animals, including 40 endangered species. Unlike many traditional zoos, animals here are grouped with other species they would normally co-exist with peacefully in the wild, and kept in settings similar to their natural habitats.

One of the most enjoyable experiences at the zoo is feeding the giraffes. Kids will be amazed as these gentle giants reach down with their long necks to pluck a treat from their hands.

This is the only zoo in the continental United States located in a subtropical climate. More than 1,000 species of trees and plants can also be found on the grounds, including a large collection of orchids.

Children will find plenty of entertainment options. If they are bored with the animals, they can head over to the play areas and enjoy some splashing around at the water-themed play area.

Address: 1 Zoo Blvd, 12400 SW 152nd Street, Miami, Florida

Official site: http://www.zoomiami.org/

Aerial view of the Deering Estate on Biscayne Bay

This former home of Charles Deering is a 444-acre estate, protecting globally endangered pine rockland habitat, as well as coastal tropical hardwood rockland hammocks, mangrove forests, salt marshes, and a coastal dune island.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places , Deering Estate at Cutler is home to the Richmond Cottage, which served as a hotel, as well as historical buildings dating from 1896 to 1922, and an American Indian burial ground dating from 1500.

Charles Deering was an art collector, who, along with his brother James, accumulated a great number of works by the Old Masters. Deering himself also painted, and some of his works are on display here. The Artist Village at the estate has become an important cultural center, featuring art and artists programs.

Address: 16701 SW 72nd Avenue, Miami, Florida

Official site: http://www.deeringestate.org/

Sign at Wynwood Walls

In the warehouse district of Wynwood, the formerly drab exterior warehouse walls have been transformed into colorful pieces of art. The Wynwood Walls, plastered in street art, or what most people think of as graffiti, have brought new life to this area.

Brought about by Tony Goldman in 2009, the district has attracted big names in the world of street art from across North America and around the world. Since it was started, more than 80,000 square feet of wall space have been graced with paintings in this unique artform.

The entire area is full of colorful street art. Wander around on your own, or for greater insight into the murals, sign up online for a guided tour. If you want to see famous name artists, and purchase prints, visit the Wynwood Walls Museum. Inside this gated area, you'll find 35 walls, retail shops, and galleries. This area used to be free, but now an admission fee is charged.

Official site: http://www.thewynwoodwalls.com

Miami Children's Museum

Always a fun outing for children, the Miami Children's Museum is housed in a colorful and creatively designed facility with more than 56,000 square feet of space. Educational and entertaining exhibits are designed to appeal to children's curiosity and creativity.

Fourteen themed galleries revolve around arts, culture, community, and communication, and four outdoor exhibits allow kids a chance to play and enjoy time outside. Some of the exhibits are definitely Miami themed: the ability to explore a cruise ship and the ability to explore the Port of Miami.

Address: 980 Macarthur Causeway, Miami, Florida

Official site: http://www.miamichildrensmuseum.org/

Key Biscayne and Crandon Park

South, beyond Miami Beach and over the Rickenbacker Causeway, is Key Biscayne, a small community with lovely beaches and beautiful parks. Of particular note is Crandon Park with an offshore reef that leaves the shoreline protected from big waves and perfect for swimming.

The park has a Family Amusement Center, making it particularly popular with families, and a Nature Center. There is generally ample parking, good facilities, chair rentals available, and lifeguards on duty.

On windy days, you may see kiteboarders ripping across the waves, being towed by their colorful kites.

American Airlines Arena

The FTX Arena, formerly the American Airlines Arena, is the home of the NBA's Miami Heat . It is also the main venue for large concerts and other special events, including top-name singers and performers. It can hold more than 19,000 people.

The structure itself opened in 1999, has been awarded the Leed Green Building Certification for being an energy-efficient building. The arena stands out prominently on Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami.

Address: 601 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida

Official site: https://www.ftxarena.com/

Venetian Pool in Coral Gables

If you become tired of the beach, or the wind is up, or you are just looking for freshwater to swim in, head to the historic Venetian Pool. Located in the beautiful city of Coral Gables, just south of Miami, the pool dates from the early 1920s. The water in the pools is as pure as it gets. Fed from an underground spring, the water is crystal clear and refreshing. Each day, the 820,000-gallon pool is drained and refilled by the spring.

The pool is a byproduct of a former quarrying operation that used the coral dug from here for the construction of homes in Coral Gables. The area surrounding the pool is like a scene from Venice, Italy. Bridges, towers, and small plazas surround the pool, giving it a very European look and feel, while caves, grottoes, and two waterfalls provide hours of enjoyment for children and adults alike.

The pool is open from the start of February until the end of November each year. Ample free parking is available across the street in the public lot.

Address: 2702 de Soto Boulevard, Coral Gables, Florida

Official site: https://www.coralgables.com/venetianpool

Coral Castle

The Coral Castle is the result of one man's 28 years of carving, using his own home-made tools. This incredible creation, made of limestone, was built by Edward Leedskalnin between 1923 and 1951. He kept his methods private and would not allow anyone to watch him work, leaving many people to wonder how he did it.

Today, you can tour the property and see the most famous structure, a giant stone gate, which opens effortlessly with the touch of a finger, as well as carvings that include stone tables and chairs, unique figures, and other pieces.

Address: 28655 South Dixie Highway, Miami, Florida

Official site: http://coralcastle.com

Freedom Tower

One of the most striking buildings on Biscayne Boulevard, Freedom Tower displays a "wedding-cake" style. Built in 1925, it is one of the oldest skyscrapers in the southeastern United States, and served for many years as the headquarters of the Miami Daily News.

Its name comes from its role as the immigration-processing center for hundreds of thousands of Cuban refugees who arrived in the 1960s. Today, it stands as a tribute to Cuban immigration and is used, in part, as a contemporary art museum.

Address: 600 North Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida

Miami's main tourist area is Miami Beach, with its lovely soft-sand beaches, Art Deco buildings, and vibrant atmosphere. There are all kinds of hotels here, from small, quaint boutique hotels in landmark buildings to the large chain hotels. Most of the hotels have pools and are within easy walking distance of the ocean and a variety of great restaurants.

Luxury Hotels :

  • With 600 feet of prime beachfront property and occupying an entire city block on Collins Ave, 1 Hotel South Beach is one of the trendiest luxury properties in town. The hotel has 426 rooms and suites, and many feature expansive views from floor-to-ceiling windows that face the Atlantic Ocean. The décor is maritime themed and makes use of reclaimed driftwood in furnishings. There are four swimming pools on-site, including the largest rooftop pool in South Beach. There are a number of restaurants with a healthy focus, and guests have access to rides in the hotel's Tesla vehicles within a three-mile radius. Pets are also welcome to stay.
  • Right on the trendiest section of South Beach, The Setai, Miami Beach is a stunning, Asian-inspired luxury resort that is popular with couples on a romantic getaway. It's an all suite hotel, and these begin studio sized and go all the way up to a four-bedroom penthouse. Expect high-end decor like hand-crafted Duxiana beds and high thread-count, Italian sheets. There are also in-room espresso machines and rainfall showers in large baths. The Setai also boasts a host of amenities, including a posh spa, three swimming pools, and sun-loungers and umbrellas on the beach. There are also multiple restaurants on-site. Try Jaya for Asian-inspired fare and The Ocean Grill for international cuisine.
  • Literally in the middle of the Miami skyline with views of the Miami River, Biscayne Bay, and downtown from the balconies attached to every room and suite, the just remodeled Kimpton EPIC Hotel is another top luxury sleep. The décor is urban contemporary, and we love the floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as the comfy beds with quality linens. The Kimpton is known for being super dog-friendly, and there is never a pet deposit to stay. Also noteworthy are two on-site restaurants: Area 31 with outdoor patio seating and Zuma on the ground floor. An on-site spa and fitness center and two swimming pools with cabanas that can be reserved complete the amenities picture.
  • In the heart of the Brickell neighborhood in downtown Miami, the Four Seasons Hotel Miami is a popular choice for families seeking a luxury resort stay. The resort even doubles as a Latin American art gallery, hosting a multi-million-dollar collection that is exhibited throughout. Child-focused amenities here include a kids' club with organized activities and a children's section in one of the two rooftop swimming pools. Adults can check out a class at the on-site Equinox fitness center or book a massage at The Spa, both located on the hotel's fourth floor.

Mid-Range Hotels :

  • If you want to be near South Beach but can't afford to pay a fortune, then try the boutique Urbanica The Meridian Hotel , which offers a more affordable, luxe experience. The hotel in the hip South of Fifth neighborhood in Miami Beach features minimalist design, with white and beige hues, and is known for its personalized service.
  • Another upmarket, mid-range choice is the Marriott Stanton South Beach , which is right on the beach. Set at the southern side of South Beach's Ocean Drive, it is a kid-friendly property but can also work for couples on a budget. There are two swimming pools and a hot tub on-site, as well as a spa with a sauna and a modern gym. There are a few dining options as well, including a good restaurant fronting the sea.
  • It is usually more affordable to stay in downtown Miami than Miami Beach, and these days the downtown area around Brickell, where the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton - Miami-Brickell Downtown is located has plenty to keep you occupied. The good-value hotel has a classy vibe and even features its own contemporary art collection. Other perks include a free breakfast and swimming pool.

Budget Hotels :

  • Even budget hotels in Miami Beach tend to be pricey unless you're visiting in the super low season. Try the Hotel Shelley for a quality budget sleep in an Art Deco building right on Collins Ave. The rooms have minimalist design and marble baths.
  • The Element Miami International Airport is right by the airport, but Miami's airport is not inconveniently located to get around the city. This hotel offers renovated rooms, with small kitchens, and an outdoor pool. The free shuttle is handy for late or early flights.
  • Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour: To see the sights of Miami at your own pace, it doesn't get any easier than a Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour . The three routes hit all the major destinations, including South Beach, Downtown Miami, Coral Gables, and Little Havana, with a total of 40 stops to choose from.
  • Sightseeing, Cruise, and Everglades Tour : If you really want to make the most of your time in Miami, the most comprehensive and convenient way to see and experience the highlights is on a Miami Combo Tour: City Sightseeing, Biscayne Bay Cruise, and Everglades Airboat Ride . This tour checks off everything but the beach, and it's all wrapped up in a one-day tour. The trip includes a narrated coach tour through the city; a cruise on the beautiful, clear waters of Biscayne Bay; and an airboat ride through the Florida Everglades.
  • Visit Key West : Take an organized Key West Day Trip to see the famous bridges that link the Keys, spend an afternoon wandering around Key West, or add on a glass-bottom boat tour, a snorkeling cruise, hop-on-hop-off tour of Key West, or parasailing. This 12-hour tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off at your Miami hotel, bus transportation to Key West, and plenty of free time to see the sights.

If you're planning a vacation packed with plenty of sunshine, endless entertainment, and festivals galore, the best time of year to visit Miami is spring .

March through May are considered high season (as are the winter months of December through February), which means you should expect crowds of tourists splaying themselves on Miami's best beaches , as well as increased rates on things like hotel rooms and local attractions. You may also need to call in advance to book a dinner reservation.

During spring, you can expect beautiful weather. With highs in the high 70s and low 80s Fahrenheit, it's not too hot, nor is it too humid. Plus, spring offers a slew of events to keep visitors busy. From tennis tournaments to outdoor concerts to food festivals, you won't be lacking in fun things to do.

This time of year is also free of the intense rains and pesky insects that plague the sticky summer months, as well as the hurricanes that hit during late fall.

A word of advice: Avoid spring break ; unless you're a fan of all day (and all night) parties, screaming youth, and bikini contests. Prices go up during this popular holiday and so does the noise level!

Easter is another time to steer clear of Miami if you're hoping to avoid crowds and keep your costs low.

Ricky Martin appears to get an erection on stage at Madonna concert

The performer was apparently very excited to join Madonna in Miami for her "Celebration" tour.

miami tour top 10

Ricky Martin appeared to be super excited by Madonna 's dancers shaking their bon-bons all up on him.

Madonna welcomed the 52-year-old on stage during a performance of "Vogue" at Sunday night's Celebration tour stop in Miami — and, judging by fan-captured videos from the concert shared online , Martin seemingly grew aroused by the dancers' sensual grinding in front of him.

Another video Martin shared to social media also appeared to show his alleged arousal during the moment. Shortly after taking the stage, Martin sat in one of two silver chairs to help Madonna judge the ballroom portion of the show, which typically sees the singer-songwriter's dancers strut down a runway to receive scores from which Madonna and a rotating roster of celebrity guest judges.

"Thank you @Madonna my love! Always fun to be invited to the party!" Martin tweeted alongside the video. "You all, CAN’T MISS THIS SHOW!"

Entertainment Weekly has reached out to representatives for Martin for comment.

Martin revealed earlier this year on an episode of Live With Kelly and Mark that he first met Madonna in 1999 following his performance at the Grammys, and the pair have remained friends ever since.

Other celebrities who've joined Madonna for the "Vogue" portion of the show include Julia Garner — who was initially hired to play Madonna in the star's delayed , self-directed biopic — RuPaul's Drag Race stars Sapphira Cristál , Plane Jane , Symone , and Monét X Change , and David Harbour , who starred in Madonna's 2011 directorial effort W.E.

Compliance status

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation.

  • Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
  • Keyboard navigation optimization: The background process also adjusts the website’s HTML, and adds various behaviors using JavaScript code to make the website operable by the keyboard. This includes the ability to navigate the website using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, operate dropdowns with the arrow keys, close them with Esc, trigger buttons and links using the Enter key, navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, and fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key.Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus, available at any time by clicking Alt+1, or as the first elements of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and not allow the focus drift outside of it.Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Disability profiles supported in our website

  • Epilepsy Safe Mode: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
  • Visually Impaired Mode: this mode adjusts the website for the convenience of users with visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
  • Cognitive Disability Mode: this mode provides different assistive options to help users with cognitive impairments such as Dyslexia, Autism, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily.
  • ADHD Friendly Mode: this mode helps users with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders to read, browse, and focus on the main website elements more easily while significantly reducing distractions.
  • Blindness Mode: this mode configures the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is software for blind users that is installed on a computer and smartphone, and websites must be compatible with it.
  • Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Miami Beach Miami Beach free

Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach , the region's unrivaled crown jewel, which visitors say they can't get enough of. Here, the art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.

There's something for everyone in Miami Beach – and a lot of it. White sand, an eclectic dining scene, prime shopping, luxurious spas and world-class nightlife are all staples in Miami Beach. Just make sure to bring plenty of cash – Miami Beach can be done on a budget, but you'll severely limit your options and it won't be nearly as fun.

Wynwood Walls Wynwood Walls

U.S. News Insider Tip: Don't miss out on grabbing artisanal doughnuts from The Salty's flagship doughnut shop, one of the longest-standing local favorites in Wynwood. If you're visiting the Arts District on a weekend, check out the food vendors at Smorgasburg Miami, too. – Lyssa Goldberg

Founded in 2009 as a way to jump-start revitalization in the neighborhood lying between downtown and the Design District , the Wynwood Walls acts as an outdoor art museum covering more than 80,000 square feet of abandoned warehouse walls. The walls are saturated with bright, eclectic street art and whimsical graffiti. Since its start, more than 50 artists from 16 countries have brought the walls to life. Plus, Wynwood Walls is one of the top musuems in Miami .

Located to the immediate west of downtown, Little Havana is the symbolic and cultural capital for Cuban Americans in Miami. The neighborhood entices droves of visitors with its vibrant atmosphere and excellent food.

South Beach is the iconic neighborhood of 9-mile Miami Beach . Whether you love it for the art deco buildings, sunshine, or its numerous film and television appearances ("The Birdcage" and "Bad Boys" are just a few set here), it is worth a visit. Lincoln Road is bursting with stores (both national brands and boutiques), bars, restaurants and endless people-watching opportunities. The Wolfsonian-FIU museum and several parks offer alternatives to South Beach's most popular pastime: beach-going. Lounge, walk, or bike along the water with local and tourists alike. Lummus Park separates some of the beach from the city streets. It houses sports courts, restrooms, walking paths, gyms and playgrounds.

Visitors have endless positive things to say about South Beach. They praise everything from the weather to the views to the beautiful people. Expect big crowds in the summer and embrace the opportunity to people watch. Those looking for a quieter experience should hit the water early.

Art Deco Historic District Art Deco Historic District free

The largest collection of art deco architecture in the United States is concentrated in a walkable section of Miami Beach . The Art Deco Historic District includes more than 800 buildings in the vibrant art deco style, primarily 1920s and 1930s designs. Many of these buildings are protected by local preservation ordinance – an effort spearheaded by Barbara Capitman nearly 50 years ago. Hotels, fountains and other structures provide a colorful and fun backdrop for vacation photos. For those interested in the history of the historic district, take one of the Miami Design Preservation League's tours .

Visitors love walking the Art Deco Historic District. Many recommend taking in the neighborhood at night, when the lights add to the already colorful surroundings. Visitors note that having a drink or meal here will be expensive, but may be worth the splurge.

U.S. News Insider Tip: On your way to or from the Everglades, stop at Robert Is Here Fruit Stand to see exotic fruits you've never even heard of, and order a tropical milkshake or smoothie with your favorite combo of fruits. Mango-Key Lime is my personal favorite. – Lyssa Goldberg

About 40 miles west of downtown Miami and a world away from flashy South Beach , the Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wetland in the U.S. Known as the "River of Grass" for its slow-moving water, the national park offers a unique look into the diverse ecosystem and vegetation that filters water as it moves farther south toward the Florida Bay and Key West .

Ball & Chain Ball & Chain

Located on Calle Ocho in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, Ball & Chain opened in 1935, so it predates the area's status as the center of Miami's cultural scene. The restaurant and bar hosted live music from its founding until 1967, when the building was converted into a furniture store. An investment group returned the Ball & Chain to its entertainment roots in the 2000s, mirroring the neighborhood's Cuban culture.

Travelers love the venue's live music, mentioning that the desire to salsa dance becomes contagious after a few mojitos. In addition to drinks, Ball & Chain also impresses visitors with its take on Cuban classics like pork tacos, conch ceviche and Cuban sandwiches. However, some feel that prices are too high. Be prepared for a dress code of no flip-flops to be enforced.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Located in the Coconut Grove district, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens were originally built as a winter villa for businessman James Deering in the early 1900s. Today, it serves as a museum, with a wide variety of art from the 15th to the 19th century. The atmosphere and architecture are a key part of the experience, which impress visitors. Much of the original house (which spans 38,000 feet) is intact and showcases a neat assortment of vintage furniture.

For many travelers, the gorgeous gardens are the highlight of a trip here. Plus, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is one of the top musuems in Miami . Visitors say the picturesque grounds remind them of European mansions. You can walk around the property at your leisure.

Venetian Pool Venetian Pool

This historic public pool with an Italian village theme is a relaxing alternative for those looking for water and sun away from the fast pace of South Beach . The pool does not use chemically treated water, relying instead on fresh water from an underground aquifer.

The Venetian Pool makes for a great family trip, but keep in mind that children younger than 3 years old are not admitted. Swimmers and sunbathers praise the architecture and refreshing water, though some say the admission prices are too high. If you get a case of the munchies, a cafe is available on-site with the usual assortment: pizza, mozzarella sticks, nachos and chicken tenders, among other concession snacks.

The planetarium offers space enthusiasts an educational trek through the cosmos via its massive high-definition screen. It also puts on a variety of light shows. Meanwhile, the museum's three-level aquarium transports guests from Florida's Everglades to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. The museum also hosts rotating special exhibits covering everything from the human microbiome to dinosaurs.

Pérez Art Museum Miami Pérez Art Museum Miami

Known by locals as the PAMM, Pérez Art Museum Miami is Miami's leading modern and contemporary art museum with a collection of international art from the 20th and 21st centuries. The museum's permanent collections and special exhibits highlight Miami's diversity and its geographic location at the intersection of the Americas, with an emphasis on the Latin experience in the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean and the African diaspora. PAMM's collection spans nearly 3,000 works of art, only a selection of which is on view across its eight galleries at any given time.

One of the first things visitors will see when they arrive at PAMM is kinetic artist Jesús Rafael Soto's interactive outdoor installation of blue strings, meant for guests to interact with and walk through, called "Penetrable BBL Blue." Recent visitors called the museum building itself the true sight to see, however – with its exterior hanging gardens and views of Biscayne Bay. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron as a state-of-the-art, sustainable structure overlooking the bay, the 200,000-square foot facility has become a cultural icon in Miami. PAMM also has a modern American restaurant on-site called Verde with an outdoor terrace offering waterfront views, which visitors enjoyed, and a boutique gift shop with art books, apparel, home decor and office supplies, and collections of merchandise by artists whose works are featured at the museum.

Zoo Miami Zoo Miami

This beautiful zoo is home to more than 3,000 animals, representing more than 500 different species. It's famous for providing a natural environment for its residents without the use of cages – rather, the zoo employs strategically placed moats to separate the animals from the visitors.

Petting zoos and plenty of "edutainment" programs are sure to keep your little ones interested. The whole family will enjoy the parrot feeding and mild rides. Recent visitors praise the zoo's cleanliness, the generous amount of space the animals have to roam and the friendly and knowledgeable employees. When planning your visit, keep a few traveler tips in mind: The zoo is large, meaning you'll be walking a fair amount; a good pair of sneakers is key. To avoid the crowds, get to the zoo right when it opens at 10 a.m. If you're visiting in the warmer months, you'll be happy to know there are plenty of water fountains, misters and shaded play areas.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

At 83 acres, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is one of the largest of its kind in the country. With a surplus of tropical plants and other beautiful greenery, you'll likely find the Fairchild to be one of the most relaxing attractions on your to-do list.

A free 45-minute narrated tram tour, which recent visitors recommend, will show you the highlights, but then you're on your own to browse the gardens as you see fit. Previous visitors suggest you stop by the butterfly garden and the sunken garden. They also recommend you budget plenty of time to just take in all of this park's natural beauty and give high marks to the docents.

Brickell City Centre Brickell City Centre free

U.S News Insider Tip: The Mandarin Oriental is just a short walk from the Brickell City Centre and every day it has a happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. with some great craft cocktails. – Lawrence Phillips, founder and CEO of Green Book Global

From its position in the heart of downtown Miami, Brickell City Centre helps pump style through the trendy city's veins. The open complex spans three city blocks and four stories, housing roughly 100 different retail, restaurant and cinema options for visitors to pass the time. Despite being an open area, the Climate Ribbon installation that towers over the outdoor walkways works to lower the temperature while maintaining Miami's glamorous style. Because of this, many reviewers said it's a nice place to go for a stroll.

U.S. News Insider Tip: End your day in Key Biscayne with a sunset view from a waterfront spot like Dune Burgers on the Beach (for toes-in-the-sand dining), The Cleat (an outdoor bar at the tip of a harbor) or Rusty Pelican (a more elevated option). – Lyssa Goldberg

Crandon Park comprises the northern portion of Key Biscayne (almost 7 miles southeast of Miami). The key began as a coconut plantation, before being donated with the stipulation that Miami-Dade County uses the land as a public park. With its abundance of activities, it's not hard to spend multiple days exploring the park's offerings. A tennis center, complete with 29 courts, a golf course, a marina and a beach all call the sprawling Crandon Park home.

Schnebly's Redland Winery Schnebly's Redland Winery

You won't find grapes growing at Schnebly Redland's Winery, dubbed the southernmost winery in the United States. Instead, it makes wine using local tropical fruits like guava, mango and passion fruit. At this gem in Miami's rural farmland region, you can take part in a wine tasting at the taproom or enjoy a walking tour of the estate to learn how the tropical wines are made. In addition to single-fruit flavors ranging from avocado to lychee, Schnebly also produces award-winning signature blends and even sparkling wine varieties. Whether or not exotic fruit wines are for you, recent visitors praised the winery's beautiful grounds, with its lush foliage, serene waterfalls, koi ponds and tiki hut structures that provide shade while you wine and dine.

For $25 per person, you're able to select five wines to sample, which a bartender will pour for you into a souvenir engraved wine glass (you'll get to take it home as a memento). Once you've picked a favorite, you can always opt to purchase a bottle to take home or open it up right then and there to split with friends alongside a charcuterie board from the small market. Guided tours are offered hourly on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) for $16 per person, but must be reserved online at least 24 hours in advance. The 30- to 45-minute tour of the estate covers the history of the Schnebly family and the process of making wine with tropical fruits instead of grapes.

Coral Castle Museum Coral Castle Museum

Fans of the mystical will love the Coral Castle Museum, which houses a sculpture garden made entirely of coral rock. The park's oddities begin with its creator, Ed Leedskalnin, who constructed the whole garden from 1923 to 1951 in secrecy. Part of the museum's fun comes from puzzling how one man could have secretly moved and carved more than 1,100 tons of rock. Another excellent question for the Coral Castle Museum's visitors: why?

Travelers delight in the Coral Castle Museum's classic roadside attraction charm, though others feel the entrance fee is too pricey. Some praise the museum's tour guides, who weave Leedskalnin's complex story into the information regarding each of the unique sculptures. Just don't expect to leave with any definitive answers.

loanDepot Park loanDepot Park

Formerly known as Marlins Park, loanDepot Park is the home base for the Miami Marlins, the city's Major League Baseball team. Located in the Little Havana neighborhood, the ballpark is ultramodern with a trace of classic Miami culture. Visitors who make it to a game get to watch one of baseball's most interesting teams. Though the Marlins have won two World Series titles since they began playing in 1993, travelers aren't guaranteed a win: The Marlins have the least number of winning seasons of any MLB franchise. 

Spectators are generally astounded by the park, especially by its diverse food offerings. They praise the retractable roof, which ensures that it's always baseball weather, even during Miami's sweltering summers. Ticket prices vary based on the game. They are available for purchase in advance on the Miami Marlins' page of the MLB website . Visitors can also take tours of the park for $15 per adult and $10 for kids ages 14 and under. Hours vary and reservations should be made in advance . The Nos.  7, 11, 51 and 208 bus routes drop passengers a few blocks from the park.

Power Rankings: These 10 Players Look Ready to Win the Masters

The 2024 Masters is here, and our model has identified the 10 players with the best chance to claim a green jacket. Here's the breakdown.

  • Author: Jim Stracka

Welcome to Power Rankings, a weekly feature on SI Golf from our partners at KeyCompete . This week the PGA Tour drops into San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open, the final stop before the Masters. Here’s how our model sees this week shaping up:

2024 Masters Preview 

The azaleas are in bloom and our focus is on Augusta National for the 2024 Masters Tournament. Designed by the legendary Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie, ANGC has been a theater of dreams since its inception in 1933. Known for its immaculate condition, strategic layout and iconic features like Amen Corner, the course requires a combination of precision, power and creativity. Its undulating greens, perilously placed bunkers and ever-present threat of Rae’s Creek are a pure physical and mental test. Here are the 10 players our model likes this week.

KeyCompete’s 2024 Masters Power Rankings

1. Scottie Scheffler (+450) - The reigning king of consistency. No 1 in the World and playing like it at just the right time.

2. Jon Rahm (+1100) - The defending champion . Powerful game, fiery competitiveness won’t go out of style. Repeat win would not surprise.

3. Xander Schauffele (+1600) - Balanced game and mental toughness make him as a serious threat. Three top 10s in his last four visits. Still chasing elusive first major.

4. Brooks Koepka (+2500) - Unmatched major championship pedigree and a couple of previous close calls here. He’ll be ready.

5. Hideki Matsuyama (+2500) - A past champion, and his precise iron play and calm demeanor are dialed in. Won the Genesis in Febrary and hasn’t finished outside the top 12 since then.


6. Rory McIlroy (+1000) - The pursuit of the elusive Grand Slam continues . Recent form and refined short game signal this could be the year.

7. Will Zalatoris (+3500) - Still early in his comeback season from back surgery, but has looked strong so far. Consistency will be key to his success.


 8. Jordan Spieth (+2200) - Exceptional putting and course management could launch him right into the mix. Should be a thrill ride regardless.


9. Joaquin Niemann (+2500) - Unique blend of creativity, power, and finesse fits Augusta like a glove. Ready to step into the major-championship spotlight.


10. Sahith Theegala (+4500) - A rising star who seems to be building to something big. Fearless approach and adaptability make him a dark horse.

About Last Week

The 2024 Valero Texas Open will be remembered for the dramatic emergence of Akshay Bhatia and a playoff that ended in heartbreak for Denny McCarthy. The playoff was only one hole but it was theatrical, and Bhatia’s victory earned him an invitation to Augusta National for his first Masters.

KeyCompete had —dare we say—a masterful week, going 5-1 on our picks. Our yearly record is 62-45 heading into the first major of the year.

President Milei of cash-strapped Argentina starts another US tour, plans to meet Elon Musk

President Javier Milei of Argentina kicked off a visit to the United States, where he'll meet with tech billionaire Elon Musk, as the libertarian leader seeks an infusion of cash to overhaul Argentina’s embattled economy

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- President Javier Milei of Argentina kicked off a visit Wednesday to the United States, where he'll meet with tech billionaire Elon Musk, as his government seeks an infusion of cash to overhaul Argentina's embattled economy.

The populist president started his four-day trip in Miami, which hosts one of the largest Argentine population in the US, and home to soccer superstar Lionel Messi. In an event closed to the press, a Miami chapter of the Hasidic group Chabad-Lubavitch honored the president and Karina Milei, his sister and presidential adviser, at a local synagogue for their “tireless efforts for Israel.”

Milei will meet with Musk on Friday in Texas, the president's spokesperson said, where he will also tour a factory for Tesla, Musk’s electric car company.

Milei's third trip to the U.S. in merely four months as president comes as he reshapes Argentine foreign policy in line with Washington. Standing beside Gen. Laura Richardson, head of the U.S. Southern Command, at the southernmost tip of South America last week, Milei vowed to boost the nations' “strategic alliance” — he sees U.S. support as vital to the economic overhaul on which he has staked his presidency.

“We took advantage to present a new foreign doctrine for Argentina,” Milei wrote Wednesday on social media platform X of his meeting with Richardson. In the same post, apparently directed at Musk — a self-declared free speech absolutist — Milei said he promoted “true freedom of expression” and slammed journalists critical of his administration as trying to “stop us from speaking."

“We are not going to remain silent in the face of slander, insult or defamation,” he wrote.

Milei's plan to slash spending has encountered resistance in a nation where annual inflation tops 276%. On Wednesday, police forcibly dispersed anti-government protestors blocking a main Buenos Aires artery.

The United States, the biggest investor in Argentina, also has the most influence over the International Monetary Fund, to which Argentina owes $42 billion. The IMF has endorsed Milei’s shock therapy for Argentina, agreeing to disburse $4.7 billion from a bailout package the country took out six years ago.

The State Department’s investment climate statement last year noted “capital controls, trade restrictions, and price controls” hampered investors in Argentina. Milei has vowed to roll back interventionist policies with market-oriented changes favored by business executives, like Musk, one of the world's richest men who leads rocket company SpaceX , car company Tesla and took over Twitter in 2022.

Milei and Musk — who share a brash personality-driven style and distaste for government overreach — have expressed mutual admiration. Ahead of his inauguration last December, Milei praised Musk as an “icon of freedom." Musk gushed over Milei's speech lambasting socialism at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, commenting “So hot” with a meme of a couple having sex while watching Milei speak.

That's in sharp contrast to Musk's clash with Brazilian authorities, who threatened to regulate social media sites and accused Musk of obstruction this week.

With its vast mineral reserves, Argentina has much to offer Musk, a dominant player in the auto industry who has referred to lithium — indispensable for electric car batteries — as "the new oil."

Milei's free-market policies have raised hopes in the U.S. that the metal and other badly needed raw materials like lithium can be extracted closer to home, breaking China's dominance of the battery supply chain. The Biden administration said it was exploring investment opportunities in Argentine lithium earlier this year.

Faced with possibly paying for news, Google removes links to California news sites for some users

Adam Beam And Trân Nguyễn

Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Google on Friday began removing California news websites from some people's search results, a test that acted as a threat should the state Legislature pass a law requiring the search giant to pay media companies for linking to their content.

Google announced the move in a blog post on Friday, calling it a "short-term test for a small percentage of users ... to measure the impact of the legislation on our product experience.” The company said it also would pause new investments in the California news industry, including the partnership initiative with news organizations and its product licensing program.

Recommended Videos

“By helping people find news stories, we help publishers of all sizes grow their audiences at no cost to them. (This bill) would up-end that model,” Jaffer Zaidi, Google's vice president for global news partnerships, wrote in the blog post.

The California Legislature is considering a bill that would require tech giants like Google, Facebook and Microsoft to pay a certain percentage of advertising revenue to media companies for linking to their content. How much the companies would have to pay would be decided by a panel of three judges through an arbitration process.

The bill aims to stop the loss of journalism jobs, which have been disappearing rapidly as legacy media companies have struggled to profit in the digital age. More than 2,500 newspapers have closed in the U.S. since 2005, according to Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. California has lost more than 100 news organizations in the past decade, according to Democratic Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, the bill’s author.

"This is a bill about basic fairness — it’s about ensuring that platforms pay for the content they repurpose,” Wicks said. “We are committed to continuing negotiations with Google and all other stakeholders to secure a brighter future for California journalists and ensure that the lights of democracy stay on.”

The state Assembly passed the bill last year with bipartisan support despite fierce opposition and lobbying efforts from big tech companies. The California Senate would have to pass it later this year for it to become law.

Supporters said the legislation would help level the playing field between news publishers and large digital platforms and provide a “lifeline” to local news organizations, which rely heavily on Google's search engine to distribute its content in the digital era. While Google's search engine has become the hub of a digital advertisement empire that generates more than $200 billion annually, news publishers saw their advertising revenues nosedive significantly in the last few decades.

But opponents, including Google, Meta and some independent newsrooms, call the legislation a “link tax” that would primarily benefit out-of-state newspaper chains and hedge funds and further decimate local news organizations. Richard Gingras, Google's vice president of news, also told state lawmakers, in a hearing last December, that Google already made significant contributions to support local journalism, pointing to the tech giant's financial grants and training to nearly 1,000 local publications in 2023, among other programs.

Google's search engine should be seen as “the largest newsstand on Earth,” Gingras said, where it helps connect users to news websites more than 24 billion times per month. Google's search engine holds an estimated 90% share of the market.

“This traffic in turn helps publishers make money by showing ads or attracting new subscribers,” he said, adding that it's estimated that each click on a link from Google is worth 5 cents to 7 cents to a news website.

Google's decision to temporarily remove links to news websites is not a new tactic for tech giants to use when pushing back on unwanted legislation. When Canada and Australia passed similar laws to promote journalism, Meta — the company that owns Facebook and Instagram — responded by blocking content from Canadian publishers on its sites in Canada. The company made similar threats to U.S. Congress and California lawmakers last year. Google had threatened to do the same in Canada. But in November, Google agreed to pay 100 million Canadian dollars ($74 million U.S. dollars) to the news industry.

News publishers would suffer and could lay off more journalists if Google completely blocks content from its search, but experts say Google also would take a financial hit without news content.

“Google would be damaging itself enormously if it decided to stop using newspaper content,” Brandon Kressin, an antitrust attorney representing News Media Alliance and other news publishers, told lawmakers in a December hearing. “They would be cutting off their nose to spite their own face.”

The political wrangling over Google’s dominant search engine can throttle access to various news sources comes against the backdrop of legal trouble that could culminate in decisions that undercut the company’s internet empire.

After presenting evidence to support its allegations that Google has been abusing its power to stifle competition and innovation during the biggest antitrust trial in a quarter century, lawyers for the U.S. Justice Department will present its closing arguments next month to a federal judge who is expected to issue a decision in the case later this year.

Following another antitrust trial that ended in December, a federal jury concluded Google had turned its app store for smartphones running on its Android software into an illegal monopoly that limited consumer choices while enriching the company through unfairly high commissions charged for in-app purchases. A hearing on the changes that Google will have to make resulting from that verdict is also scheduled to occur next month.

California has attempted to boost local journalism through various initiatives, including a $25 million multiyear, state-funded program in partnership with UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism to place 40 early-career journalists in local newsrooms annually. Lawmakers are also considering another proposal that would expand tax credits for local news organizations this year.

Country music star Morgan Wallen was arrested on felony charges after allegedly throwing a chair from a bar rooftop in Nashville on Sunday night, police said. 

Wallen, 30, faces three reckless endangerment charges and one disorderly conduct charge following an incident at country artist Eric Church's six-story restaurant bar, Chief's, in downtown Nashville, the Metro Nashville Police Department said. Police said in a social media post that Wallen tossed a chair from the top floor of Chief's and it landed on Broadway – close to two officers.

His lawyer, Worrick Robinson, confirmed the arrest and told CBS News in a statement that the singer is cooperating with authorities. 

Wallen's bond was set at $15,250. He's scheduled to appear in court on May 3. His arrest comes as he kicked off his One Night At A Time Tour on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. He will be in Nashville for his concert dates on May 2 through May 4. 

On Sunday, his fellow country music colleagues celebrated wins at the  Country Music Television Awards  in Austin, Texas. Wallen's music video for "Last Night" was nominated for best male video of the year, but he lost to  Jelly Roll, whose "Need a Favor" video  won it instead.

President Milei of Cash-Strapped Argentina Starts Another US Tour, Plans to Meet Elon Musk

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — President Javier Milei of Argentina kicked off a visit Wednesday to the United States, where he'll meet with tech billionaire Elon Musk , as his government seeks an infusion of cash to overhaul Argentina's embattled economy.

The populist president started his four-day trip in Miami, which hosts one of the largest Argentine population in the US, and home to soccer superstar Lionel Messi . In an event closed to the press, a Miami chapter of the Hasidic group Chabad-Lubavitch honored the president and Karina Milei, his sister and presidential adviser, at a local synagogue for their “tireless efforts for Israel.”

Milei will meet with Musk on Friday in Texas, the president's spokesperson said, where he will also tour a factory for Tesla, Musk’s electric car company .

Milei's third trip to the U.S. in merely four months as president comes as he reshapes Argentine foreign policy in line with Washington. Standing beside Gen. Laura Richardson, head of the U.S. Southern Command, at the southernmost tip of South America last week, Milei vowed to boost the nations' “strategic alliance” — he sees U.S. support as vital to the economic overhaul on which he has staked his presidency .

“We took advantage to present a new foreign doctrine for Argentina,” Milei wrote Wednesday on social media platform X of his meeting with Richardson. In the same post, apparently directed at Musk — a self-declared free speech absolutist — Milei said he promoted “true freedom of expression” and slammed journalists critical of his administration as trying to “stop us from speaking."

“We are not going to remain silent in the face of slander, insult or defamation,” he wrote.

Milei's plan to slash spending has encountered resistance in a nation where annual inflation tops 276%. On Wednesday, police forcibly dispersed anti-government protestors blocking a main Buenos Aires artery.

The United States, the biggest investor in Argentina, also has the most influence over the International Monetary Fund, to which Argentina owes $42 billion. The IMF has endorsed Milei’s shock therapy for Argentina, agreeing to disburse $4.7 billion from a bailout package the country took out six years ago.

The State Department’s investment climate statement last year noted “capital controls, trade restrictions, and price controls” hampered investors in Argentina. Milei has vowed to roll back interventionist policies with market-oriented changes favored by business executives, like Musk, one of the world's richest men who leads rocket company SpaceX, car company Tesla and took over Twitter in 2022.

Milei and Musk — who share a brash personality-driven style and distaste for government overreach — have expressed mutual admiration. Ahead of his inauguration last December, Milei praised Musk as an “icon of freedom." Musk gushed over Milei's speech lambasting socialism at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland , commenting “So hot” with a meme of a couple having sex while watching Milei speak.

That's in sharp contrast to Musk's clash with Brazilian authorities, who threatened to regulate social media sites and accused Musk of obstruction this week.

With its vast mineral reserves , Argentina has much to offer Musk, a dominant player in the auto industry who has referred to lithium — indispensable for electric car batteries — as "the new oil."

Milei's free-market policies have raised hopes in the U.S. that the metal and other badly needed raw materials like lithium can be extracted closer to home, breaking China's dominance of the battery supply chain. The Biden administration said it was exploring investment opportunities in Argentine lithium earlier this year.
