Explore South Beach and its Art Deco jewels
In the day, this is where the muscle gods descend from heaven to glimmer in the sun just for your viewing pleasure. You can watch non-stop till sundown or when your eyeballs pop. In the night, the bars and restaurants along the beach come alive with exuberant music, eclectic neon-lights and clinking of cocktail glasses.
If you like architecture, South Beach is home to Miami’s iconic Art Deco jewels, which of course are likewise dotted around the city.
Enjoy some Hispanic cuisines
Miami is home to many hispanic migrants, such as Cubans and Peruvians. The hispanic culture is certainly the reason for the vibrant and colourful nightlife and food scene of Miami. Either head to Little Havana or the closer Española Way.
Ride on an Airboat across the Everglades
The Everglades is a wetland located in southern Florida, covering an area of 97km wide and 160km long. You can rent an airboat (that comes with a driver of course) and literally glide across it. It is not an area you would want to swim in as these marshes are the main nesting and feeding grounds of the region’s alligators.
There are no seatbelts on the airboat, so hang on VERY tight to your seat!
Try some Gator Nuggets
Alligators were and still are the staple diet of the Native American peoples of Florida. They are normally fried, and often served in a burger. I’m not too sure about the texture, as it feels tougher than chicken, and tastes rather bland. But it is an experience, nonetheless.
