Top 10 things to do in Miami

With a relaxed beach life and Cuban-bred passion for partying, this Floridian metropolis is a pastel paradise for people watching. And animals too! Here are Miami's top 10 attractions.

Fisher Island

Home to superstars and the mega-rich, the most affluent corner of the US isn't open to just anyone, but you can get pretty close to Fisher Island on a boat tour of the bay.

Miami Seaquarium

"Flipper" was filmed at the US' oldest oceanarium on Virginia Key, but there are more creatures at the Miami Seaquarium than just performing marine animals – aquatic and otherwise!

Gator Park

Gator Park is the place to go if you want to see alligators, of course, but take an airboat tour of this Everglades attraction for snakes, turtles, and exotic birds too!

Miami Museum of Science

2015 sees the grand reopening of Miami's leading science museum, but this is Miami so there are animals here too. Check out the bird of prey center!

South Beach

Home to the famous Ocean Drive, the first part of Miami to be developed is arguably still the most... well, Miami-ish. South Beach remains one of the city's best beaches too.

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens

Once known as Villa Vizcaya, this opulent estate is now open to the public to walk around and think about moving there upon winning the lottery.

Miami Children's Museum

With exhibits catered to the young (and young at heart), this is a great place to take the family, especially if your children are averse to regular museums!

Zoo Miami

Miami's climate makes it the ideal location for the only tropical zoo in the US. For a small fee you can even feed the giraffes!

Miami Beach Architectural District

This historic district of Miami Beach is sometimes referred to as the Art Deco District. No prizes for guessing which style of architecture dominates its postcard-perfect streets!

Bass Museum of Art

With art from the Renaissance to the present day, the city's leading gallery occupies Miami Beach's old public library building.

Planning Your Miami Visit

When to go?

The city's basketball team is called the Miami Heat for a reason. The tropical monsoon climate means it's always hot, although you can expect thunderstorms in summer and hurricane season runs for as long as June to November. Nevertheless, it's perfect for sunbathing in winter!

How many days?

Most of Miami Beach's best attractions can be covered in 3 or 4 days, but book at least a week if you want to see more of the city and/or go to the Everglades.

How safe is it?

Despite its depiction in movies, much of Miami is pretty safe. Like most cities though, it has parts tourists would be smart to avoid. High-crime areas include Biscayne Boulevard, Liberty City, Opa-Locka, and Overtown. Unlike the others, you might have reason to go to Miami's Downtown district, but stay alert, especially after dark.

What People Are Saying About Miami

Very friendly team and interesting tour.

From the pick up at the hotel to the drive back, everybody was friendly and professional. The tour was interesting and guide spoke with passion. I highly recommend it.

Perfect way to take in the Marvellous Miami Magic!

Negatives: I wish it ran later finishing at 5.15pm is a shame when there is still so much to do and the shops are open late. Also an approximate time for when the bus will arrive at the bus stops would be useful once you have booked your ticket. I booked online and printed the voucher but not all the staff are aware of the voucher offer and they should be. Positives: friendly yet professional staff in particular Marc Mament who ensured I knew where to go in Bayside to pick up my ticket for the bus travel and Ocean Queen Cruise. Jack and Yvonne - my namesake :)) - were brilliant! Funny, informative and Yvonne really knows her music, Teddy P, Marvin Gaye. We were stuck in traffic so it was great finding out that her dogs are named after these brilliant old school soul singers. My pick up and drop off point was right outside my hotel -the Mayfair Hotel and Spa - so a perfect start to the day. Loved the cruise! I will definitely book again and will be telling my friends to do so too! :))

good organization and enough time on the isle to get a good glimpse

one comment though : the bus was poorly equipped : air conditionining was not working; way back was very unconfortable for all passengers due to high temparture on the bus; no safety belts either
Key West Full-Day Tour from Miami Beach with Options Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/22/2016

The pub crawl was so much fun and really convenient.

I had a blast! We didn't have to figure out which clubs or bars to go to, which was one less thing to worry about. All we had to do was have fun.
