Known for its nightlife, culture, art-deco style, and great food, South Beach Miami is the place to be. For over 50 years, this “sun and fun and capital of the world” has seen a lot of change but has remained of the most iconic places worldwide.
With shops lining the roads, beautiful sunsets occurring every night, and multiple festivals happening throughout the year, there are hundreds of things you can choose to do. Overwhelmed? Don’t worry; we’ve narrowed it down to the top 5 places you need to visit on your next trip to South Beach.
Go European At Espanola Way
Espanola Way is a one-way pedestrian street that will take you right out of South Beach and straight into Europe. If you love historical architecture and the European way of life, then Espanola Way is the place to be. This quaint area on South Beach has a variety of cafe’s to choose from, like Papo Coffee, A La Folie Cafe, and Havana 1957 just to name a few.
After drinking premium French roast coffee and snacking on Cuban sandwiches, you can take a stroll underneath Miami’s sunshine and cafe lights. Afterward, be prepared for a vibrant night of unforgettable dining and dancing in the streets.
Shop At Lincoln Road Mall
To truly live the South Beach lifestyle, your day should —in no particular order— consist of eating, going to the beach, and shopping at the Lincoln Mall. Coined as Brazilian excellence, the Lincoln Mall has 82 stores and 64 restaurants to choose from. The mall is open 10:00 am to 11:00 pm every day, and with the high number of restaurants and shops to visit, you could easily spend an entire weekend here. And you should!
Once you’ve exhausted your South Beach shopping, you can head down Lincoln Road for a few blocks and people-watch, go to the movies, or enjoy a cocktail with a view at one of many rooftop bars in Miami.
Face Your Fears At Jungle Island
If you’re looking to do something more adventurous or just prefer to be outdoors, then Jungle Island is another location you must visit in South Beach. Visitors can book a flight on SuperFlight, which is a wind tunnel free-flight experience similar to skydiving, but not as risky. If you enjoy adrenaline rushes but aren’t into free-falling, then try SkyWire instead. This is Miami’s very first zip line that takes you from the city into the “jungle.”
Or, you could choose to keep your visit traditional by participating in Jungle Island’s “enhanced animal experiences.” You can hang with sloths, lemurs, or parrots, during your visit to this one-of-a-kind amusement park. The hours of operation are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from Wednesday to Sunday.
Spend A Day At The Science Museum
The Frost Science Museum, located on Biscayne Boulevard, is over 250,000 square feet of pure enjoyment. The museum separates into four distinct parts: the Aquarium, The Frost Planetarium, the North Wing, and the West Wing. Children and adults of all ages can learn about space, technology, engineering, architecture, sustainability, and more.
This museum of science has something for everyone, including a premiere Insider’s Tour option where visitors can purchase a ticket that takes them behind the scenes of the museum’s most popular areas. The museum is open 365 days a year from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm.
