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

Loved it Key West is absolutely worth a visit!

The driver was nice and we had more time then expected! I would recommend this tour

Key West Full-Day Tour from Miami Reviewed by Fabienne, 02/03/2017

A safe and awesome full day exploratory adventure!

We wanted to surprise a friend for his birthday and enjoy a day at sea. We found this offer online and gave it a try. Mr. Manuel Fernández was our guide. He was charming, very kind and protective. We felt safe at all times. The drive down to Key West is beautiful. You get to sit back and enjoy the view with a short documentary about the island. Once in Key West, Mr. Manuel handles all your ticket purchases. We bought the Trolly tour with a discount and ordered some food to go before our snorkeling activity. Blue skies, sun block and an endless ocean on the way to the two snorkeling spots. We swam until the very last minute. The crew was so much fun and really professional. Had a couple of beers on the way back. Got on the Trolly to head to the beach. It was nice to see the architecture and hear about some of its history. It really left us wanting to spend more time there. We did not have time to walk around much or go to museums. We ate what we bought earlier on the busride back.

Once we got the the park it was interesting and professional.

We waited for an hour for the bus and the 45 mins to get out of Miami for the 1 hour drive to the park. The organizer was pleasant, but a bit disorganized.

Enjoyable Day with excellent tour guide!!

Long day but worth it Manny and Tony were very diligent and you felt they were concerned for all on the bus We bought The Trolley Bus hop on hop off and it was well worth it again advised by Manny a good day!!
