The best time to visit Miami ☀️

9 Things to do in Miami
Here’s a little overview of Miami’s districts.
1 | Ocean Drive
Take a walk on Ocean Drive by night. If you are visiting Miami, the famous Ocean Drive is clearly one of the must-see places. Between the music everywhere, the flashy neon storefronts, or the lively bars, such as the Palace bar with Drag Queen shows, you will be amazed. In short, it is a little walk that can be fun in the evening with friends, lovers or family!
2 | Little Havana district
In Miami, one thing is certain: the Cuban influence is present! So much that there is even a neighborhood called Little Havana. This area is full of several shops, cafés or typical restaurants that recall Cuban culture.
3 | Watching the sunset in South Beach Miami
Watch the sunset at the South Pointe Park Pier.
4 | Wynwood and design district
Be amazed by Wynwood and the Design District. Wynwood, which was a very infrequent neighborhood ten years ago and which has been transformed by street art which makes it very trendy and open to tourists. It is the largest street art district in the world! The Design District is very elegant. There are luxury boutiques with very artistic and architecturally innovative storefronts.
5 | Rent a bike along the coast
Rent a bike and just let yourself go at your own pace by going down the entire avenue by the sea, hair blowing in the wind and gazing into the turquoise ocean. Breaks are frequent, but how can you resist the charm of Miami Beach’s pretty lifeguard cabins? And then, some chic hotels (like the Delano) are well worth a little photo break. The bike path (boardwalk) makes the ride really cool and carefree. 🤩
6 | Biscayne Bay
Also, called the Bay of billionaires, Biscayne Bay is known for its high concentration of luxury homes. We took a boat trip to enjoy a unique view of Miami as well as these famous villas of “Stars Island“. For the most part, they belong to celebrities. For example, the villas of Will Smith, Shakira and Shaquille O’Neal.
