More to Miami Than the Beach

When you plan to part ways for a morning, afternoon or evening of adventure, make sure you’re not only in good company, but poised to embrace the many cultural experiences Miami has to offer: one-of-a-kind art galleries in Wynwood and Little River, opera, classical music and ballet performances in downtown Miami or Miami Beach, the Perez Museum of Modern Art, lively salsa music in Bayside, the piano bar at Magnum’s on 79 St., and concerts at the Miami Airlines Arena, to name a few.   If high-end shopping is your “calling” then the fashion houses at the Miami Design District, Bal Harbor, Aventura or Merrick Park will satisfy the most discriminating shoppers.  If interested in searching for bargains then the Sawgrass and Dolphin malls will prove fertile ground. Independent eateries, fabled sports teams, beautiful beaches and the Everglades National Park, Parrot Jungle, the Seaquarium in Key Biscayne, or the Miami Zoo in South Miami offer plenty of other adventure possibilities.
