Hit the Beach

If you’re a beach bum, you’re in for a treat. The south coast is full of free-access beaches. Explore the beautiful beaches of Haulover Park, Surfside, South Beach, Lummus Park Beach, and South Pointe Park. These azure beaches are trendy, vibrant with the most diverse crowd, and full of bars. Change into your swimsuit, put on your sunglasses, sip a cocktail and take in the view!

Stroll around Little Havana

Experience Miami’s rich Cuban heritage by visiting Little Havana. Delve into its Hispanic culture by taking a walk through the place. Have a look at the old monuments such as the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame – a Hispanic version of the star-studded Hollywood sidewalk.

Gorge on the Local Cuisine

Ditch the fancy South Beach restaurants and make your way to places where you can get affordable yet lip-smacking food. Try the Cuban delicacies at Little Havana for just 1.50 to 10 USD. Away from the South Beach area, there are several cafes and restaurants offering you a filling meal at great prices. Love cooking? You could even shop for a ton of groceries at low rates and cook an elaborate meal for yourself!

Take a Bike Tour

Rent a bike to tour the famed Coconut Grove. It is the best way to explore the colorful neighborhoods of Miami. Ride by the blue waters of Biscayne Bay, visit boutique shops, eat at eclectic restaurants, enjoy the lush green landscapes, and the breathtaking natural setting of the Coconut Grove.

Enjoy a Movie by the Beach

How about watching a local movie with friendly strangers on the beach? Sounds exciting? Then head to the Gratis Outdoor Films by the Miami Beach Soundscape ExoStage on a Wednesday. Gather your gang or go solo to catch the day’s flick sharp at 8 pm. Guess what? It’s free!

Jazz it Up

Love jazz music? On every last Friday of the month, the Museum Of Contemporary Art presents a free jazz show. So, time your trip to make the most of what they have to offer without spending a dime. There’s nothing like a beautiful jazz evening to end your day on a great note.
