Updated: Apr 7, 2022
THREE DAYS IN MIAMI. VISITING MIAMI FOR THE FIRST TIME AND LOOKING TO SEE IF YOU LIKE IT?
Day 1: Miami Beach When you come to Miami most people want to hit the beach first, weather permits. Our advice is to go to Ocean Drive in South Beach. In this famous strip you will find outside cafes and restaurants and a gorgeous beach waiting for you to dig your feet in the sand. Preferably use public transportation to get there because it is pretty difficult to park in Miami Beach. If you are using your own vehicle be very careful not to park illegally, your car will be towed in no time and besides the headache it supposes it is very costly. So if you are lucky and find a spot great, if not consider these public parkings. After the beach you can head west to Lincoln Road and have lunch in the numerous outside terraces. This is the main pedestrian boulevard in Miami and you will find a wide array of shopping possibilities. If you don’t want to shop and want a rest from the beach you can book an Art Deco Walking Tour. Once finished with that you can go back to the beach to enjoy a little more the sand or you can watch the sunset over the bay atMonty’s Sunset. At night Miami Beach becomes alive and there are all kinds of clubs and restaurants you can enjoy.
Day 2 Downtown and the quaint neighborhoods Head out to Coconut Grove and have breakfast at the terrace of Green Street Café and enjoy “Miami watching” and the beautiful shops in the area. Go Downtown and stop to see the PAMM and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. Don’t skip sitting by the water in the “flying chairs” and enjoy the water breeze. A couple of blocks away is Bay Side Marketplace. Have a stroll through the little shops and have a drink in one of the restaurants by the water. Then visit Wynwood for some lunch. Wynwood is an up-and-coming neighborhood in Miami where you can find really unique restaurants. After lunch, you must stroll down to the “Wynwood walls,” an outdoor museum showcasing large-scale works by some of the world’s best-known street artists. You will see wonderful murals! In the afternoon, head to Little Havana where you can have a little taste of Cuban life. Latin music is played everywhere and you can relax at the bars there, smoke a handmade cigar or have a delicious Cuban drink like the “Mojito”. If you don’t drink nor smoke, then you might enjoy a “colada,” strong and delicious Cuban coffee. Stay there until sundown and learn to dance salsa! Or be a spectator and watch “the Latin moves” in any of the clubs – It’s well worth it.
Day 3 Miami from the Water Miami should be seen on land and from the water. Here are several choices. The first is to rent a boat and venture out in the water on your own, the second is to rent a captained boat and the third is buy tickets of a river and islands boat tour going through the residential canals. Pack lunch with you and enjoy a whole morning of fun water and adventure. Go back to your place, rest and prepare for a hopping night. Visit Miami City Centre the new mall in town right smack in the center of Miami financial district you can walk around and have an aperitif there. Later on, cross the street south to Mary Brickell Village. Enjoy one of the many restaurants around. No matter what day of the week you go to this neighborhood you will see many people walking around. Enjoy a night cap in one of the Blue Martini, it has a nice outside terrace.
