South Beach for a Short Stay

There is so much to see in our fabulous city that you could spend years exploring all Greater Miami has to offer.

But what if you’re here for only a day or two?

Here are some tips for discovering the best of Miami Beach in a short amount of time.

If you have 1/2 a Day 

Get a taste of our waterfront in the always-lively Bayside Marketplace.
Arm yourself with a frozen daiquiri and stroll along the bay. There are lots of shops and kiosks, plus live music and entertainment every day.

You can also catch a quick sightseeing cruise from Bayside.

If you have 1 Day 

Spend the day in South Beach, where you can get a sun tan, take a tour of historic art deco hotels, lunch at an Ocean Drive cafe, watch a fashion shoot, shop at trendy boutiques, rub elbows with celebrities at dinner, then dance the night away at the hottest clubs, all in the radius of a few blocks!

Don’t miss newly renovated Lincoln Road, site of art galleries, funky shops, and chic restaurants.

And do rent inline skates if you haven’t brought them – it’s one of the most popular ways to get around.

If you have 2 Days 

After a hectic day on South Beach, you’ll want to relax. Head out early to Key Biscayne to catch rays on the palm-lined beaches along the causeway or at Crandon Park. There are two attractions moments away: the Miami Seaquarium for a first-hand look at marine life, and Vizcaya, a stunning Italian Renaissance style villa and formal gardens on Biscayne Bay.

In late afternoon, drive down the winding Bayshore Drive to downtown Coconut Grove, a delightful artists’ colony that is now home to eclectic boutiques, fun cafes and restaurants, charming architecture and tropical foliage.

End your day at Cocowalk, a bustling open-air marketplace with shops, restaurants, movies and nightlife.

If you have 3 Days

On your third day, take some time to explore our subtropical flora and fauna. 

Three popular attractions to consider: Parrot Jungle and Gardens, a bird sanctuary and botanical garden; Metrozoo, nearly 300 acres of cageless animal exhibits and plant life from four continents; and Fairchild Tropical Garden, a world-renowned botanical garden and conservatory.

Or see our biggest natural attraction of all: Everglades National Park.

Two popular entrances are Shark Valley, on the Tamiami Trail 25 miles west of the turnpike; and the Royal Palm Visitor Center, off the last southern exit of the Florida Turnpike.

You’ll be able to walk the boardwalks and trails and get a first-hand view of this unique river of grass.

In any case, we suggest to spend some time walking in Lincoln Road, it is a very romantic street, where you can enjoy candle light dinner.
