Fun things to do in Miami Beach
My friends at Hotels.com asked me to share a few fun things to do in Miami Beach! The whole world will be watching the vibrant city of Miami, Florida on Sunday February 2, 2020, because Super Bowl LIV will be played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. Families, empty nesters, couples and friend groups will travel away from the winter blues and down to where the sun shines virtually every day. Travel to Miami is red hot right now.
I read where an estimated 17,000,000 people will call in sick on Monday after the game! Parties are planned, restaurants are reserved, playtime is happening EVERYWHERE! Football fans plan for and wait patiently for this special game to see whether their favorite team will be playing and to celebrate in a big way.
Are you a football fan? Are you a Forty Niner or a Chiefs fan? Do your family and friends want to head to Miami Beach and soak up the Super Bowl party extraordinaire ? Or maybe you would love to know a few fun things to do in Miami that are not football related?
Here’s a few places to see, restaurants to eat and stops to make while on your weekend in Miami Beach. Even if you don’t plan to go in February, keep this short and colorful itinerary ready for your next visit!
If you are up for sunny skies, big smiles, white sand beaches, craft cocktails, outdoor attractions and a hopping night life, this eclectic destination will make every visitor happy, I promise.
As for accommodations, there are several areas of the city that you can choose from. My favorites would be Miami Beach which is more urban and close to nearby museums or for a more party-like atmosphere you should stay in South Beach. Each neighborhood has their own personal flair and it is up to you to decide which way to go!
Beaker and Grey – Lunch, Brunch, Dinner and Cocktails – Yes Please! Choose your meal and make a reservation. It’s fantastic.
1 800 Lucky – A 10,000 square foot hall created in the style of a hip Asian Market. There is indoor and outdoor seating and a booming soundtrack of hip hop music.
Zak the Baker – According to my nephew Clint, a Miami resident, “this restaurant has the best breakfast and pastries in the wholeeeeee state”! He sold me! It is casual and Certified Kosher.
Lucali – Divine pizzas, salad and calzones – On the Eater 38 List too!
Café La Trova – The world famous Julio Cabrera and long-time friend, Chef Michelle Bernstein, team up to bring Cafe La Trova to the heart of Little Havana.
Beach! For goodness sake, go to the beach! Miami Beach offers some of the most stunning beaches and pale green water that I have ever enjoyed!
Lincoln Road Mall – This pedestrian walking area is eight blocks of “retail therapy”. Located in South Beach, there are divine cafes, restaurants and shops that will please every palate.
Sugar Rooftop Bar – Best sunset views in the city!
J Wakefield Brewing – The enjoyable establishment is an independently owned craft brewery and tap room located in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District.
Wynwood Walls – Artists from around the world working in the graffiti and street art scene have revitalized a warehouse district originally conceived by the late Tony Goldman in 2009. Public and private tours are available and are given by the Goldman Global Arts team.
Botanical Garden – This is a 2.6 acre hidden oasis in the heart of Miami and features subtropical plants from around the world. Admission is free.
Haulover Park – Haulover Beach Park contains the largest remaining stretch of undeveloped beach front in Miami-Dade County. It is situated just a few miles north of Miami Beach, between Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Beach.
If you can make it to all of these places in a weekend, you are quite the travelista! There is so much going on in Miami that you could easily spend a week enjoying the local cuisine and many tourist attractions.
