Are you heading to Miami, Florida soon? Well, that’s pretty amazing — bet you’re pretty excited!. It’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet. It has a mixture of great weather, awesome sights, and wonderful people, so you’ll fall in love straight away. Like any vacation, you don’t just want to sit around for a week or two. Here’s how you can make the most of your trip to Miami…
Choose the Best Time to Go
Miami is a beautiful place throughout the entire calendar year. Down in the south-east of the US, it’s warm and humid. If you’re from a relatively cold part of the planet, you’ll enjoy the heat! Even as you enter the winter months, it’s still warm, so you won’t be worrying about frostbite.
The summer is the time to go, though, right? When you picture Miami, or see it in photos, it’s always bright, and colorful, and the sun is shining. There’s no one perfect time to go because everyone has different preferences, but you won’t forget a Miami summer!
Explore Zoos, Aquariums, Museums, and Art
Miami has a plethora of different areas you and your family can visit in order to learn a thing or two while having a great time. If you fancy spending a day with the animals, you could hit the Miami Zoo, the Seaquarium, or head to the Zoological Wildlife Foundation. There are also many different museums, such as the Jewish Museum, the Lock & Load Museum (great for the guys!) and the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
Miami is also known for its art scene. You can see street art at Wynwood Walls or visit the free Institute of Contemporary Art. Of course, there are numerous art galleries as well. Take a walk through the Art Deco Historic District to see the white- and pastel-colored stucco buildings we often think of when we think of Miami.
Another landmark that comes to mind when you picture Miami is the beautiful beach. If you want to make the most of your trip to Miami, certainly the beach will be on your itinerary. So relax and take in the fun ambiance. The sights, the sounds, and the overall feeling will leave you refreshed.
Enjoy the Views
As we’ve mentioned before, Miami is a very pretty place. You’ll want to see as much as you can before you leave. Visit some skyscrapers to have a look at Miami from a different perspective.
The views will blow your mind! Another idea for a gorgeous view is to see Miami from the water. In fact, this might be the best vantage point as it also helps you stay cool in the heat, plus you’re closer to marine wildlife. If you’re thinking of renting a boat in Miami, you’ll get more out of it than just a fun ride.
Be Sure to Take in Some Sports
Miami is pretty famous for its sporting achievements and sports teams. You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy a game, and it can be a fun family activity. The energy of the crowds, people-watching, and cheering for your favorite team are all part of the experience. The Marlins baseball team and the basketball team, Miami Heat, are two of the biggest names here. Inter Miami, a soccer team, will soon be ready to go too. Watching the pros do their thing would make for a fun day/evening out.
