Favorite Place to Eat in Miami

Favorite Outdoor Activity Spot in Miami
Key Biscayne: Staying fit and active is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Key Biscayne is a beautiful barrier island with sheltered beaches, mangroves, wildlife, and a lighthouse. It’s like going on a mini-vacation that’s right in your backyard. Plus, there are great bike paths to explore.
Top Socially-Distanced Activity in Miami
Outdoor concerts at the Arscht Center: Did you know the Arscht center is one of the largest performing arts centers in the U.S. and is an Art Deco style building that was built in 1929? So much history! With limited entertainment due to COVID-19, the outdoor concerts have been a wonderful activity for the community.
Favorite Gym in Miami
Coral Gables Athletic Center: The Olympic size pool, clean and plentiful machines, and convenient location make this gym a great escape.
Hidden Gem in Miami
Boater’s Grill on no-name Harbor Key Biscayne: It’s a little slice of paradise with beautiful views, plentiful outdoor seating, and some of the best fresh fish around. Whether you’re a local or have family and friends in town, it’s a spot that seems to get better each time you visit.
Must-See Spot for Locals or Visitors in Miami
Key Biscayne Lighthouse view from the top: The Cape Florida Lighthouse is situated in Bill Baggs Cape State Park. As the oldest structure in Miami-Dade, it has a long history tied to it. The view from the top is stunning and the walk to get up there is quite the workout, but very much worth the Kodak moment, you’ll be able to capture.
