Off-the-beach adventures in Miami

When people think about Miami they normally default to the sun, sea, and sand vision of this popular southern destination – and if you’re staying in one of our apartments in South Beach, then you know how exciting this part of the city can be. But there is so much more to this little corner of Florida, with something to satisfy everyone from art lovers to surfer chicks. Here are some activities you never knew Miami was great for:

Hiking: With its tropical flora and plentiful wildlife, Miami is perfect for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts alike. Check out Ash Creek Park, the site of a Tequesta Indian village between 500 B.C. and 1300 A.D., or the Anhinga Trail in the Everglades National Park, where you’ll have no trouble spotting alligators sunning themselves by the waterfront.

Food: You may be aware of the myriad of incredible restaurants in Miami – but there are only so many times a day one can eat out. Fill in the gaps with food tours and cooking classes. The highly-rated excursions at Miami Culinary Tours include tastings and trivia for lots of different neighborhoods, while Ayesha’s Kitchen offers up something a little different – Indian cooking classes guaranteed to get your tastebuds tingling.

Adventure Sports: Ever heard of a flyboard? Well, it’s a jetpack that goes on your feet – think snowboarding on air – and you can do it right here in Miami! With training from a skilled instructor and a little practice, you can surf the sky or go underwater – all with the exhilarating propulsion of your own personal jetpack.

Boating: Could there be a more romantic way to see Miami than from a sailboat at sunset? Join one of the Biscayne Bay tours which stop at exotic islands and beautiful bird sanctuaries, or splash out and charter a boat for a luxury getaway to the Florida Keys.

History: Miami was a hot destination long before the Kardashians went shopping there. Join one of History Miami’s walking tours and learn all about the art deco architecture of South Beach, the Cuban influence in Little Havana, and the botanical gardens by the Collins Canal.
