    I have been to the zoo several times, I have gone with friends and with boys, a super nice time is spent, it helps you connect with nature and get to know a little about the fauna of our planet. Thank you, it has helped me a lot to disconnect from the city.

    This is an awesome arena to see an event in. We saw the Heat vs Knicks game in March. Countless amounts of eating options and the views from where we were in the stands was awesome. I'd absolutely go back here when in Miami for another Heat game.

    My wife and I went here just so she could hold a monkey. We ended up holding several very nice animals and falling in love with a special monkey named Romeo. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our question on their very wide array of species. A very fun experience for both of us

    Free! Three loops in downtown Miami. No narrative, but three great free "windshield" tours. Every three minutes, so no waiting. Easy step on step off from one loop to another. Only 4 seats per car, reserved for disabled or elderly, so be able to stand a while.

    This artsy neighbourhood is known for its bold evocative art on building facades, walls and the like. Sometimes the messages on these hand painted murals are a little obtuse and even dark, but the skill and talent is undeniable. The art is found on several city blocks and is considered the highest concentration of street art anywhere in the world. Within this area is an outdoor museum Wynwood Walls that has many contemporary artists exhibited. There is also a Wynwood Walk that takes people on walking tours and explains what they are seeing. Nowadays, this area has become very trendy with many fashionable shops, galleries and eateries locating here.

    I visited here both days I was in Miami. It’s a nice spot to walk but it’s not a huge area. It leads to Bayside Marketplace from downtown and overlooks the water and port. There was some evidence of rough sleeping in the park but that’s not a shock and it wasn’t intrusive.

    Exploring Miami, Miami Beach and other neighbourhoods is made easier by the Miami Trolley. Not only is it free, but air conditioned with friendly drivers whose helpful advice sets you on your way. To make the best of this opportunity you need to find schedules to plan your route. You may need to walk a bit to catch one, but the experience is rewarding.

    Museum Director is a wealth of history and knowledge of the City of Miami. Such a good experience to learn how the building blocks were put together to form what we know today as the City of Miami PD

    Great experience at Ballpark. We went for a sold-out World Baseball Classic semi-final game. Marlins sent plenty of emails and notices that parking could be an issue. We chose to Uber. No problem. Despite a huge crowd getting through security was no issue. No lines. Lots of police around the outside. Felt safe.

    Most sat down during game play. People moved in-between inning. Long lines at bathrooms unless you walked to Centre Field. Nice mascot display out there with kids area. Food cheaper out there as well.

    Concessions stands were quick. Prices much like other ball parks. Teamstore under stocked with merchandise.

    Ballpark worth a visit. Not much next door but a quick ride from Bayside Market Place where you can get plenty to eat and drink.

    A different look at wild life. You are in the cage and the monkeys are on the outside. Highly recommend a visit.

    It isn't perfect, but my daughter had a blast. Some elements were not working, and the pricing is a little high, especially for a 19 mo. However, there was something for kids of all ages. We loved the music wing, which was highly interactive. Many of the art activities come at an additional charge. You can easily entertain a kid for hours, so pack accordingly.

    Don't be confused. It took me a little while to figure it out. The Charles Deering who established the Deering Estate was the brother of the James Deering who built Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Two Miami landmarks, two millionaire brothers/industrialists/philanthropists. Charles Deering was the son of William Deering, founder of Deering Harvester Company. After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy and serving as an officer in the Navy until 1881, he became secretary of his father's company, which merged with McCormick Harvesting Company and became International Harvester in 1902. He died at the age of 75 at his estate at Cutler. He lived on the 444-acre property for five years, from 1922 until his death in 1927. Located at 16701 Southwest 72nd Avenue in the Cutler neighborhood of Palmetto Bay, the estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, consists of a three-story wooden house built in 1900, known as the Richmond Cottage, and a three-story stone mansion. The grounds include what is thought to be the largest virgin coastal tropical hardwood hammock in the continental United States. The Richmond Cottage was built as a family home at the end of the 19th century, converted into a 22-room hotel in 1900, then purchased by Charles Deering in 1916 and used as his residence until his Mediterranean Stone House was completed in 1922. It has 18-inch poured concrete walls, oolitic limestone, coffered ceilings, copper clad and brass doors, an elevator and a wine cellar. Deering intended the house to be used as a showcase for his art collection and books. Two other must-see attractions on the property are the Cutler Burial Mound, one of the few surviving prehistoric mounds in Miami-Dade County, and the Cutler Fossil Site, a sinkhole that was discovered in 1979 that was found to contain bones of Pleistocene animals and bones and artifacts of early humans.
