So this is the famous Wynwood. It's spectacular. Get comfortable shoes. Spend hours there. Make sure you grab lunch or dinner. Start off at 2250 NW 2 Ave and go north to Wynwood Walls at 2520 NW 2 Ave, where you will take pictures in front of the most beautiful murals that you will remember for the rest of your life. It's an iconic place. What is it? On the second Saturday of each month, the neighborhood’s studios, galleries and showrooms open their doors to the public. Why go? Stretching into up-and-coming areas, Wynwood Second Saturday happenings converge between Miami Avenue and Northwest Second Avenue, where you’ll also find pop-up shops from local artisans and a battery of food trucks swarmed by crowds of all ages. Traffic moves at a snail’s pace but the range of street art is enough to keep you entertained.

Obviously south Beach is a must!! Go to Ocean Drive and 5th Street. Start there. You CANNOT take alcohol on the beach (sandy area). You have to purchase it there. Take your towels, snacks and that's it. And don't litter. Walk up and down Ocean Drive all the way to 17th street, where you can go west and go to Lincoln Road Mall, open air. When paying for dinner, most places will include the tip as part of their charge and the establishment will not tell you. It will say it on your check or ask!! Never leave your drink alone. Not ever! It's a very touristy place and people are not careful with their drinking. Be safe. And definitely put on sunblock!!! Oh, yeah. Enjoy!

Shopping
Great shopping area. Marshall's for all your casual wear, shorts, T-shirts, sandals, shoes, men and women, beach towels. There's Ross in case you need a dress or suit at inexpensive price. There's Target for sporting good, Starbucks inside, inexpensive but trendy clothing and lots of items and food to purchase. The mall is surrounded by a lot of good restaurants. Visit Sakaya. It's $2 to park in the garage. Don't park on street. It's so much more expensive and you'll wind up getting a parking ticket. You can walk or ride bike from the apartment. Only 5 minutes away.

If you have the time, you must take a drive (4 hours) to Key West. The beauty of the drive is breathtaking. And once you're in Key West, you've reached the most southern tip of Florida, and the beginning of where many Cubans arrived escaping their government. It's a quaint and friendly place. If you don't want to drive, just Google the many tours that leave from Miami/Miami Beach. They're reasonably priced.

Fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and cycling are all encouraged at this active beach. Pavilions offer picnic shelter and the nearby Lighthouse Café is good for a solid lunch.

What is it?

Plus, with 83-acres of rare plants and flowers, you’ll never get tired of exploring. Why go? Take a morning or afternoon stroll through these stunning surroundings and escape the South Beach bustle. Not one for greenery? Visit during the annual chocolate festival in January—a delicious event dedicated to all things cocoa. Time Out tip: Spring for a membership and take advantage of after-hours programming (like current fave NightGarden) for free. Deals change seasonally but often include a perk to one of the garden’s exciting festivals.
