Moving To Miami? Check Out These Fun Activities

You’ve settled in your new home and are ready to explore the city. Miami is famous for its
pristine beaches and fabulous cuisine, but there is more to the Florida city. Miami is also rich in
culture and offers plenty of adventures for nature lovers. Here are a few activities you may want
to check out in Miami.

December Art Fair and More

The weather is great in December. It’s the perfect time to explore the international Art Basel
Miami Beach fair. While the galleries are open throughout the year, the first week in December
draws thousands of artists to the gallery districts.
Downtown Miami is home to the performing arts. You can catch everything from a Broadway
play to the opera and symphony. While on downtown, stop at the Museum of Science
and Planetarium. Don’t forget to include a visit to the aquarium.

Explore Nature and Experience History

Whether it’s the Zoo Miami with over 3,000 animals or the educational Seaquarium, animal
lovers can learn more about wild and ocean life. New and long-term residents can also learn
more about the wildlife, living in their backyards at Everglades National Park. If you want an
adventure and to protect the area’s ecosystem, you can take part in the annual snake-hunting
event. Prizes and accolades are handed out to whoever bags the most or largest snakes.
The best way to experience the Everglades is by boat. You can take an airboat tour or rent
kayaks and paddleboards. Millionaire’s Row is something else worth experiencing. The Island
Queen cruises Biscayne Bay throughout the year.

Spend the Day at the Beach

Whether in the metro area or the suburbs, living in Miami means easy access to
fabulous beaches. You can find beaches to show off your bikini, tour outdoor art galleries, or are
family-friendly. There’s a beach for every taste and style.
Virginia Key Beach Park offers white sand, pristine water, and history. The park pays homage to
the area’s expansive African American culture. Crandon Park Beach is the ideal place to spend
some family time. The water is calm, and the beach is perfect for relaxing. Take some time to
explore Crandon Gardens. It’s the former home of the Miami zoo.
Jet skiing, windsurfing, and relaxing on the sand are standard activities at Matheson Hammock
Park. When you need to get out of the hot Florida sun, the nearby grove of oak trees provides
plenty of shade and incredible ocean views.

Enjoy a Refreshing Adult Beverage

Anyone new to Miami isn’t going to have problems finding a great place to eat. The city is filled
with restaurants, cafes, and food trucks serving almost every type of dish. But did you know,
Does Miami also have a thriving craft beer scene?
The Abbey Brewing Company is a fun place to start sampling the local brews. Located in South
Beach, the brewery boasts stained glass windows, wooden benches, and beers with names like
Father Theodore’s Stout and Immaculate IPA.
Wynwood Brewing Company serves up its award-winning Pop’s Porter, while the Miami
Brewing Company is the perfect place to try a wheat ale with a hint of mango. If you are in the
Little Haiti neighborhood, stop in at the Focal Brewing Company.

Enjoy Your Backyard

Miami’s weather is also great for outdoor entertainment at home. Chances are you are taking
photos and videos of your adventures. Grab some take-out, pick up some beverages from a local brewery, and spend the night reliving the day on the big screen. You can take your home movies to the next level with a home theater projector.
