Things To Do In Miami Beach
Everyone is so geeked about the trending topics of the day. So much so, that we now use hashtags for just about everything. Are you traveling from long distances, or a resident tired of the Keys and searching for things to do in Miami Beach, look no further than Instagram for some inspiration, using #miamibeach. Below, our picks for any day of the week to get you you started.
Tour the Art Deco District on Ocean Drive
Follow the footsteps of Gianni Versace down this iconic and historic part of Miami Beach. The Art Deco district was constructed in the early 1900’s as a way to show off Miami’s vibrant culture to new incoming tourists. Now locals and visitors alike can marvel in the rows of neon-colored buildings, each with their own unique architecture and story to tell. The Miami Design Preservation League offers tours every day or if you like to go at your speed you can rent a self-guided audio tour available in four languages. Visit the Art Deco Visitor’s Center in South Beach for tour information.

No Miami Beach experience is complete without a beach day. With over 10 miles of beach space to choose from you can opt for a busier section of the beach down South to enjoy group volleyball games, people watching, and community music events. Or you can settle in at a more quiet location up North to enjoy a nice book on the sand and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Pack a picnic with friends, or enjoy one of the many cafes and restaurants that line the beach boardwalks. Want to bring your furry friend along too? Haulover Park allows dogs for a small fee.
