Things to do in Miami - Off the beaten path.

17th Aug 2019

Miami is the gateway to the United States for millions of travelers from around the world, and Latin Americans in particular find it attractive for different reasons.

Although many visit it with some frequency, it is common for them to repeat their itinerary, between South Beach, the beach and some shopping centers. There is much more.

I was visiting the city of Miami and staying at the new Hyatt Centric Brickell, the company's newest hotel in this trendy area of Miami, and that besides offering a privileged location and amazing views, it motivated me to know other places in Miami.

Here are 10 recommendations for our next trip to Miami:

Walk Brickell

First I must recommend Brickell as an area and it is a great idea to choose it to stay on our next trip to Miami.

While it has no beach, Brickell's life with restaurants, shopping, and waterfront spaces for walking or physical activity make it a very attractive place.

Hotel proposals have grown remarkably, and the new Hyatt Centric Brickell combines an ideal location, spectacular views of Miami and a Cuban imprint in its cuisine that is worth trying.

Travel in Metromover (free)

Uber, taxi or rent a car can be some of the options to move in the city, but if we are in Brickell we have a great option of mobility and free.

The metromover is an elevated train that travels 7 kilometers through the urban center of Miami and it is not necessary to buy tickets or do any paperwork. Just get on and enjoy the tour.

Go to Brickell City Center

The shopping center has become the heart of this area, housing the main luxury brands and results in a must see. With closed and open spaces, Brickell City Center not only has stores, but offers different dining options that are worthwhile.

Eat in La Centrale

It is one of the most interesting gastronomic proposals of Brickell City Center.

There are three floors of pure European influence in Miami's first Italian food hall, including restaurants, bars, cafes, markets, wine bars and even cooking classes.

We can simply buy to take away or sit in some of the different restaurants.

Dine at Marion

At night, a very good option is to go to Marion, a restaurant and cocktail lounge that with Asian influence in its gastronomic proposal and varied cocktails offer a relaxed and fun atmosphere, ideal to go with friends.

Wynwood Walls

It is one of the coolest areas of the city and does not stop growing. Wynwood is famous for its murals (Wynwood Walls) and walking through its streets and touring the works of art on the walls assure us a good time in one of the most instagrammable places.

Eat in Sette Osteria

In Wynwood it is a great idea to stop and eat at Sette Osteria, a restaurant with the best Italian cuisine that has become a must since its opening, and is chosen by artists and locals.

Visit Little Havana

Also known as Little Havana is a very popular neighborhood in Miami where we will clearly find all the Cuban influence that the city has.

We can visit it during the day, visit the iconic Parque del Dominó, have a delicious Cuban coffee or buy made-up cigars.

Have a cocktail at Ball & Chain

In Little Havana, Ball & Chain is a classic where we can dine, have cocktails and enjoy live music, both in an indoor space and in a patio with stage.

It is one of the most iconic places in the area and the musical proposal varies according to the day. It is advisable to book in advance.

Visit the PAMM

The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a clear sign that contemporary art says it is present in the city in South Florida, and a worthwhile visit.

The importance of the museum lies not only in the samples it offers, but in the value it gives to the city and its projection of the future.

Dining at Caña, Hyatt Centric Miami

The Hyatt Centric Miami hotel has a restaurant on the first floor that is worth visiting, even if we are not staying at the hotel.

With the best food with Cuban influence, it is open from breakfast to dinner.

Go to Microteatro

Works of 15 minutes inside containers summarize the proposal of Microteatro, an idea that was imported to Miami 

and worth visiting.

There are works in Spanish, in English and others that are not spoken and results in a more than interesting option to do something different in Miami. Safe recommendation
