This beautiful 2.6-acre tract of urban greenspace features unique collections of trees and flowers both native to Florida and sourced from alternate locations. The garden's standout sections include its Japanese garden and its array of orchids.

Try to plan your visit during January, so you can experience the Art Deco festival that makes South Beach come alive with its vibrant sights and sounds.

Vizcaya Museum

Be inspired during your getaway to Miami Beach with a visit to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. This National Historic Landmark was once a luxurious residence belonging to James Deering, a worldwide leader in agricultural equipment.

South Pointe Park

Take in sweeping views of the ocean, go for a relaxing stroll along the winding paths, or sit on a grassy knoll and enjoy a quiet moment. This 17-acre park on the southernmost tip of Miami Beach also features a playground and a dog park, making it the perfect destination if you want to spend some quality time with your loved ones and furry companions.

Miami Children's Museum

Located on a little island nestled in between Miami and South Beach, the Miami Children's Museum features a plethora of kid-friendly interactive exhibits, including a 6-foot piggy bank, the Castle of Dreams, and the Music Makers Studio, to name a few.
