Best Things To Do in Miami

From glamorous to intellectually-stimulating, Miami offers visitors a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities. The stellar Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and HistoryMiami are not to be missed. Shopaholics will gravitate toward the very fashionable Coral Gables for luxury spending. If you're with the kids, seek out the Zoo Miami or the Venetian Pool for an afternoon. Or, the most popular option, due east: a handful of beaches, sun, sand and seaside nightlife that make their year-round home in Miami Beach. You'll also want to explore the city's other neighborhoods, particularly the Design District and, of course, Little Havana.
