"The Miami Beach Botanical Gardens was originally a municipal park that opened in the early ’60s; it wasn’t until decades later when the area was redesigned and rejuvenated that it became the fantastic attraction that it is now. Designed by one of the state’s most renowned landscape architects, the gardens are an urban oasis filled with fountains, art, and an amazingly diverse array of plants, trees, and flowers, most of which are species native to Florida. The grounds include a Japanese garden, warden gardens, plenty of shaded seating areas, and well-marked pathways that lead to each distinct area."

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Sizable horticultural destination with a guided tour via tram, water features & a butterfly exhibit.
"If you need to escape Miami’s madness, consider a green day in one of the country’s largest tropical botanical gardens. A butterfly grove, tropical plant conservatory and gentle vistas of marsh and keys habitats, plus frequent art installations from artists like Roy Lichtenstein, are all stunning. In addition to easy-to-follow, self-guided walking tours, a free 45-minute tram tours the entire park on the hour from 10am to 3pm (till 4pm weekends)."
The Kampong, National Tropical Botanical Garden
4.6 (263 ratings)4.5 (95 ratings)
Lush botanical garden with flowering trees & tropical fruit, including more than 50 types of mango.
"When owner Anthony Bruno moved to Florida, he missed authentic New York-style pizza so much that he decided to make his own. Now, years later, the chain has spread across the Sunshine State and beyond. This spot is known for its cheesy pies, from the most traditional square margherita to modern takes like white pizza and meaty pies decked with pepperoni, sausage, and meatballs."

"Secluded in the Sunset Harbor Neighborhood in Miami Beach, Sardinia Ristorante has been a local favorite since it open in 2006. Owners Antonio Gallo and Pietro Vardeu have created a mixture of amazing food and great ambiance in their restaurant. Chosen to be one of Miami’s BEST Restaurants for several years in a row by New Times Magazine, New York Times among others, you will enjoy authentic Italian food and a wide selection of wines that will make your dinner experience worth coming back."
"The show-stopper at Sardinia Enoteca is chef Pietro Verdeu's pasta bottarga ($25) — a Sardinian classic spaghetti in tomato sauce enlivened by gray mullet's cured fish roe. The unique, lovely aroma of the delicacy is memorable on its own, but the bottarga is also salty and deeply flavorful, clinging to the al dente pasta to add an exquisite crunchiness. The basil in the light tomato sauce adds a beautiful touch of green."
"Situated in heart of what many call the “true Everglades”—a river of grass that stretches 100 miles (161 kilometers) from Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico—Shark Valley is part of a freshwater ecosystem with incredible biodiversity. It’s one of the best places in Everglades National Park to spot alligators, birds, and other wildlife.More"
"Around 50-minutes from Miami, Shark Valley is one of the best places in the Everglades that’s within easy reach of Miami. Once here, you can explore the trails and the iconic Bobcat Boardwalk that’s totally stunning on a gorgeous sunny day. Though, take lots of water and sunblock with you – that humidity and mosquitos can be tough."
"Shark Valley sounds like it should be the headquarters for the villain in a James Bond movie, but it is in fact a slice of National Park Service grounds heavy with informative signs and knowledgeable rangers...."

"Head first to CocoWalk, where there is ample covered parking. Stroll through CocoWalk’s colorful boutiques and kiosks. When hunger strikes, head for Chili’s, Fat Tuesdays, Duffy’s Sports Grill or the Cheesecake Factory. If you’re in the mood for Latin food, check out Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar & LatAm Grill (next door to CocoWalk) or stroll over to the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel and sample excellent Peruvian fare at Panorama (located on the hotel’s 8th floor) which boasts a spectacular view of Dinner Key Marina sailboats and Biscayne Bay."
"Grab the car and spend the afternoon in Coconut Grove strolling through the Tuscan-style pedestrian mall CocoWalk, which includes hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. A hidden favorite down the road, Monty’s, is ideal for waterfront afternoon drinking and the occasional local band. Walk along the dock to admire boats of all shapes and sizes."
"A post shared by CocoWalk (@cocowalkmiami) on Aug 31, 2018 at 2:03pm PDT. In the heart of the Coconut Grove community is CocoWalk. Coconut Grove is one of the oldest communities in Miami and it has always tried to maintain its old school Miami aesthetic."
