What to do in Miami

Miami is one of the many Florida based beach destinations in the entire United States. A trip to South Florida could bring welcome respite when timed with the onset of the cold winter season in the North where many Miami visitors come from. The all year warm climate in Floridamakes the Atlantic coast a magnet for tourists. The North Miami Beach district starts from Collins Avenue, an 11 km beach strip, and is among the many beaches and parks in this part of Florida. The North Beach is where you will find Surfside, Golden Beach, and the Sunny Isles beach areas. However, the warm weather and nice beaches is not all that Miami and Southern Florida has to offer. The following are some of the popular sites in a typical tour of Miami:

A Different Miami

You can make your trip interesting by asking some of the tour guides who are familiar with the local culture. From there you can choose from a variety of community and eco-friendly tours. Many cities such as Miami have mixed communities that are composed of many ethnicities peacefully coexisting with each other and tourism becomes a tool to support their progress. You can observe this trend in tourism –based community efforts that have really taken off in other parts of the state particularly in the theme parks and nature preserves in Orlando.

Cubans, who comprise one of the biggest and thriving ethnicities in this part of Florida, make their home in Little Havana. If you plan a visit there you can include a trip to The Coral Gables district just a bit to the south of little Havana and see its attractive streets , wide boulevards, and many stunning buildings with Italian and Spanish architecture.

Miami Culture

Miami is steeped in culture and art as well. The Historical Museum of Southern Florida is one of the largest private, regional history museums in the country; and it tells the stories of South Florida and the Caribbean while the Miami Art Museum focuses on the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Both of these museums are located in Flagler Avenue. If you brought kids along, they will surely learn and enjoy the sights inside the Miami Children's Museum in Macarthur Causeway.

Miami History

More historical flavor awaits tourists at the Spanish Monastery of St. Bernard. Rumor has it that a famous tycoon purchased some portions of a monastic complex built around the early 12th century in Segovia and shipped them across the Atlantic to be rebuilt in Miami in the 1920’s. Other premiere Miami tourist spots include the Little Haiti Cutural Centre, the KalbassiArt and Retail house, the Miami River’s Riverwalk, Bayfront Park, Lincoln Street Mall, and the outdoor shopping complex in Bayside Marketplace.
