The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science stands out from its competitors thanks to its expansive selection of offerings. The planetarium offers space enthusiasts an educational trek through the cosmos via its massive high-definition screen. It also puts on a variety of light shows. Meanwhile, the museum's three-level aquarium transports guests from Florida's Everglades to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. The museum also hosts a rotating list of additional exhibits covering everything from the human microbiome to flight.

Past visitors raved about the museum's offerings, saying that it offers something for guests of all ages. Travelers were especially appreciative of the museum's interactive displays, which particularly appeal to children. Recent visitors recommended arriving early and setting aside several hours to get your money's worth at the massive museum.

The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science sits about 1 mile north of downtown Miami. The Museum Park Metromover Station sits across the street from the museum. Visitors who opt to drive can park in the museum's garage, which costs $8 for the first hour and $4 for each additional hour, with a max daily rate of $40. The museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Tickets cost $29.95 for adults, $20.95 for children ages 3 to 11 and are free for kids 2 and younger. Purchasing tickets online in advance saves visitors $2 per ticket. Check out the museum's website to snag tickets and learn more about its offerings.

#1 Miami Beach

Travelers go to Miami mainly for Miami Beach and they go to Miami Beach mainly for South Beach, the region's unrivaled crown jewel. The art deco history of the city meets the bright lights and vibrant nightlife of the younger generation.

There's something for everyone here — 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.
