Stroll down South Beach
Take a leisurely thirty minute stroll along the sand; a theatre experience in itself. Glamour and celebrity sing out, at one end is the former Versace mansion (now Casa Casurina a private club), everywhere are the Versace clad and Latin rhythms accompany you all the way.
The Design District is what it says, a mile of style. This quarter of industrial chic is lined with galleries, exhibits and design shops. A key landmark is The Living Room, a giant replica of a living room, only on the street, created by an Argentinean duo, Behar and Marquadt.
Built in 1923 The Miami Venetian Pool is one of the world?s most beautiful public swimming pools. The architecture is influenced by Venice, naturally, with its own Venetian style moorings. It is fed by fresh spring water and features coral caves, grottos and even two waterfalls.
Cafe Cubano in Little Havana
All of Miami is infused with Latin flavors, scents and rhythms. Calle Ocho is the heart of the neighborhood. This is not a glamorous fiesta experience, just a slice of real life, with real cafe cubano, hand rolled cigars and old men playing dominoes.
Everglades Airboat Tour
Take a tour on an airboat that glides at 35mph through the waterways over sawgrass and observe this unique eco system and indigenous wildlife. Everglades National Park, set aside in 1947 as one of the nation's largest parks, is home to many rare and endangered species such as the American crocodile.
If you want efficient sightseeing a helicopter trip can take in more in one hour than you can see in many days from the ground. Take an aerial view of the beaches, the city neon or Florida Everglades.
