In a city of skyscrapers, Bayfront Park provides a welcome green space in downtown Miami. What's more, the park boasts a waterfront location on Biscayne Bay. Over the past century, the city expanded Bayfront Park's offerings to meet the requests of Miamians. Nowadays, the park hosts many events, such as yoga, movie nights and salsa classes, all of which are free. Bayfront Park also hosts a handful of paid events, including a flying trapeze school and concerts.

Recent visitors were impressed by the park's amphitheater and pavilion, which are where the concerts and yoga take place, respectively. They also enjoyed Bayfront Park's panoramic views of the bay. Many suggested walking here before or after a visit to Bayside Marketplace. However, some visitors noted that vagabonds tend to populate the area, meaning it may be unsafe after dark.

The park sits in downtown Miami, just north of the InterContinental Miami. The Metromover includes a stop at the southwest corner of the park, which is aptly named the Bayfront Park Station. Travelers must purchase tickets for paid events from the events' respective websites. Check out Bayfront Park's website to see a full schedule of activities and learn more about the park.

Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach, the region's unrivaled crown jewel, which visitors say they can't get enough of. Here, the art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.

There's something for everyone in Miami Beach – and a lot of it. White sand, an eclectic dining scene, prime shopping, luxurious spas and world-class nightlife are all staples in Miami Beach. Just make sure to bring plenty of loot – Miami Beach can be done on a budget, but you'll severely limit your options and it won't be nearly as fun.
