Top 3 Things To Do In Miami

By Chris Boyle



South Beach or SoBe, is the über cool area of Miami that attracts the city’s beautiful people to its most gorgeous beach.

Located on the barrier island of Miami Beach that separates Biscayne Bay from the Atlantic Ocean, the area is easily accessible via various causeways from the Miami mainland. Roughly the size of 23 blocks, the district has a large collection of restaurants, clubs, boutiques, hotels and, of course, the beach. The large contingents of Europeans and Latin American visitors to South Beach have given the place a cosmopolitan feel; locals and tourists alike converse in many different languages. Expect to see surfers catching the waves, models strolling along the golden sands and even a few celebrities among the ubiquitous hipsters. Look out for the recently re-designed lifeguards stands; the colourful displays are unique to Miami. A great place to just sit and chill out, wander around the shops or enjoy lunch, SoBe is the place to head for if you’re looking to find the scene in Miami.


 A trip to the Everglades National Park is sure to be a highlight of any trip to Miami.

The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, the Park is home to a variety of rare and endangered species, including the American crocodile and the West Indian manatee. The Everglades are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance and there are several different ways to experience this incredible ecosystem. Jet and airboat tours are available for those looking to enjoy the Everglades in style, buggy tours and hiking trips will take you further into the prairies, wetlands and sloughs, while kayaking and canoeing tours allow you to explore off the beaten track with a little fishing thrown in. For those feeling a little more adventurous and wishing to see the Everglades from the skies, there is even a float plane excursion.


The famous quote by comedian Lenny Bruce that ‘Miami Beach is where neon goes to die’ may still hold true in some respects, but there is more to Miami nightlife than bright lights.
