Hi folks! Ready for another tour of Miami? Here we go!!!
What to do in Miami?
If you are looking for beaches here I will suggest you my favorite spots:1. Virginia Key is a 863-acre barrier island in Miami, Florida, United States in Biscayne Bay, south of Brickell and north of Key Biscayne. It accessible from the mainland via the Rickenbacker Causeway. (it has 2 entrance across the street from Miami Sea aquarium,. they charge a fee)
Thee first entrance coming from the city, the beach itself is better, the water is clear, has a little playground for kids and if you drive all the way to the end of the park you will be fascinate with the view, park your car and walk through a path under beautiful trees , once there you will see the cruises set sail and you can still swim a clear/deeper waters, there are also starfish for you to admired. This part of the park it is also great for biking and it has larger BBQ areas .
The second entrance, its better for kayaking, and there is also areas for BBQ.
2.Another great spot will be Crandon Park all the way at the end of Biscayne Key. There are several beaches in this area, but the one I like most is the last beach(it also has an entrance fee) Here in Miami we called it, El Farito (lighthouse), but the real name is Cape Florida LightHouse which is open to the public. What I like about this beach is that offers a lot to do, rent a single bike, a duo bike or a fun bike(up to 5 people) and explore the beach. Spend the day by the water, go fish, bring or rent a kayak, paddle your favorite board, go parasailing, have lunch on your own in one of the BBQ areas or at the café. Later enjoy the sunset while having late lunch or dinner at Boater’s Grill while you will be delighted with boaters coming in and out of the bay.
3. My next spot brings me in land to Sunny Isles Area .Head to the parking at Newport Hotel and enjoy the waves of our ocean, and white sand. What is special about this beach?: the pier that takes you to a wonderful fishing spot, delicious mojito and great food .The Pier has limited parking but there are plenty public parking nearby or you can always use the hotel parking.
We still at the beach since to me is the best option when visiting Miami, lets talk about beach nights and Places to go:
A must see is Lincoln Road. It is a group of streets full of restaurants to choose from, any kind of food your graving for, you’ll find it here, then you have museums, stores, lots of interaction with street performances. At one end of the street you’ll have a the bay full of boats, while at the other end you’ll have the beach full of arts and craft vendors.
Few block further, visit Espanola Way very similar to Lincoln Road but smaller in size.
South Beach Night Life: walk through Collins Ave. finding night clubs and famous Mango’s Café for an active night.
Bayside: It is like a commercial center near the water, with open spaces for the performers, musicians, dancers, and tremendous ambiance. This is a place for ages, there is something for everybody to do. Boat Tour leave the docks to visit millionaires mansions, others offer cruising the bay just as a sightseeing. The speed boat tours its also an attraction, carriages, Casino Cruises, stores, restaurants.
Across from Bayside we have the American Lines Arena where there are concerts, Sport games, and many other events every month.
Enjoy this pics of me and my family enjoying Beach Life in Miami, during summer or winter is always fun!!!
