WMC 2015

Explore

Miami is a diverse city with a rich history. Here, the side-by-side existence of both beach and city isn’t the only contradictory element. Miami mixes English and Spanish to form “Spanglish", and effortlessly fuses the traditional with modern cosmopolitanism. Thus, a trip to Miami should include more than a relaxing beach vacation or a high energy, music-filled week. If you have the time (and the energy), try to venture out and explore what Miami has to offer.

Head to our Guide to Ultra for the rundown on exploring Downtown Miami.

The collections of paintings, sculptures, sex toys, and tapestries range from antiquities to the present day and provide equal emphasis on all cultures and lifestyles.

  • South Beach Kayak

    Experience the beautiful tropical sites of Miami while enjoying the ocean and a fun and relaxing activity. South Beach Kayak offers rentals, tours, and lessons for all skill levels and group sizes. Check the website for event listings such as the Fool Moon tour that begins with kayaking at sunset and ends with a moonlit bonfire complete with s’mores, booze, and music.

  • Parasail Miami Beach

    Parasailing is an exciting way to view South Beach, Downtown Miami, as well as a myriad of marine life from above. Reaching heights of up to 600 feet, parasailing provides an adrenaline rush just as much as it does a prime viewing location. The boats leave right from South Beach behind the Loews Hotel Miami, convenient for those heading to this famous beach for a day in the sun and sand.

  • Bass Museum of Art

    With art dating from the Renaissance to the present, as well as an Egyptian gallery, this quaint museum has a little bit of something for everyone. Be sure to check out their calendar for any upcoming parties or free viewings.

While also evident in furniture, jewelry, and patterns, this style is most prevalent in architecture ‐ which can be seen in more than 800 buildings in Miami’s Art Deco district. Some notable buildings to see include the Park Central Hotel and the Essex House Hotel.
