How to Spend 1 Day in Miami

How to Spend 1 Day in Miami

Miami offers diversions that go beyond its famous sun and sand. Stroll through the Art Deco District, climb aboard a speedboat for a fast-paced tour, or cycle through Little Havana to get a taste of Miami’s Cuban food—all in 24 hours. Here are a few ways to spend one day in Miami. 

Morning: Welcome to Miami

Start your day in Miami by getting the lay of the land. Choose among several tours that allow you to maximize time in the city, such as a hop-on hop-off with more than 40 stops throughout Miami or a Segway tour that zips through South Beach and its Art Deco District. Visitors who are interested in Miami beyond South Beach may want to check out a food tour by bike, which takes you on a scenic cycle through a Cuban neighborhood complete with Cuban snacks. Learn about Miami’s history and cultural influences from your guide. 

Afternoon: Miami by Sea and by Air

Get a new perspective on Miami with an afternoon tour by boat or plane. Adventurous travelers can sign up for a parasailing excursion in Biscayne Bay or a speedboat sightseeing tour of Miami. Another option for an adrenaline-inducing ride is a seaplane tour of Miami, which takes off and lands in the waters of Key Biscayne and offers views over South Beach, Coconut Grove, and Star Island. Sightseeing cruises offer a more relaxed option to see Miami by water; keep an eye out for dolphins. 

Night: Eat, Drink, and Dance

Experience Miami’s renowned nightlife with a mojito and salsa-themed tour. Spend a night in South Beach sipping cocktails and learning how to salsa with music provided by a live band. To catch the sunset from a different perspective, sign up for an airplane tour at dusk. A twilight tour over Biscayne Bay offers panoramic views and countless photo opportunities. Visitors interested in Miami’s diverse food scene might opt for a food and walking tour. Sample bites from several Latin American cultures on a guided evening stroll.
