With Miami’s ideal weather, you can take advantage of the sun and being outside a great deal. What is the best part about enjoying the outdoors? Most of Miami’s beaches and outdoor activities are completely free.
There are so many options for a beach day in Miami. Most people recommend that the further north you go, the quieter the beach atmosphere is. Miami Beach Central extends from Collins Avenue and 21st Street to 46th Street. It has a nice, long boardwalk for those who want to walk with shoes and without sand.
Of course, there are also beaches that present fun for the entire family, including your little furry friends. Some dog-friendly beaches in the area include Haulover Beach, Hobie Beach, and The North Shore Open Space Park.
Beyond the sands of the beach, Miami Beach offers beautiful sceneries from just about anywhere. One way to enjoy the water and boating community is by walking through the many marinas of the area. Situated on a causeway midway between Miami Shores and Miami Beach, Pelican Harbour Marina is a popular launch site for boaters in North Bay Village. It’s also a great bird-watching spot, as it dwells on a 10-acre, natural preserve site of Pelican Island. There are picnic tables, barbecue pits, and volleyball courts for families to get together for a low-budget day of fun by the water.
The art community is very vibrant in Miami Beach. Art walks are a wonderful, cost-free ways to see the city, while exploring the city’s artistic trends. The area is also the home base to Art Basel Miami Beach, which is a large art show that presents leading galleries from all over the world.
Many parks throughout Miami offer free yoga sessions. One to check out with beautiful views of the bay is in South Beach at the Mondrian on Sunday mornings. There are other free classes offered deeper in the city at Bayfront Park three times per week, Coconut Grove at Kennedy Park on Saturday mornings, and Margaret Pace Park on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
Miami and Miami Beach are gems for those looking for ways to save a nickel and a penny, especially with just how much the natural scenery of Southern Florida offers on its own. Spend your vacation taking in the views at Miami Beach and not worry about breaking the bank.
