As with some of the other destinations on this tour, Miami feels like a historical monument in itself even though it is considered to be a relatively young city. There is still a bit of history to be observed here, with attractions such as the Ancient Spanish Monastery, Barnacle State Park and Coral Castle are but a few destinations that will allow you to learn about aspects of Miami’s past, while enjoying your day in this beautiful, tropical city.
The Ancient Spanish Monastery is a very unique sight in a young city like Miami. The monastery was originally built in Segovia, Spain in 1141. In 1925, William Randolph Hearst purchased the building, but it wasn’t until 1952 that the stones were reassembled at its current site in North Miami Beach.
Barnacle State Park was completed in 1891 and was built by Commodore Ralph Munroe. It is Miami-Dade County’s oldest house still situated in its original location. The surrounding tropical hardwood hammock is one of the last examples left of Miami’s original landscape.
Lastly Coral Castle, located in Homestead, is a bizarre and mysterious attraction. Edward Leedskalnin took 28 years to build the monument, which he did out of unrequited love for the fiance who left him one day before their wedding.
What every kind of party you are looking for, chances are that you will be able to find it in Miami. Live venues, clubs, beach bars, live jazz, rooftop bars and so much more is available for your entertainment. Too much to take in? Easy, just arrange a package from one of the many local companies around.
They arrange everything from a limo to drive you around in style, access to as many venues as you wish and ensure that that you have the best possible time while in Mami. Don’t party too hard though as you are going to want to be up and about during the day as much as possible!
Start your day with breakfast at a beach side cafe, or maybe choose to visit a local dinner well known to the locals. Take a stroll down the beach side in Miami and then venture into a few shops that peak your interest. Trade in the beaches for something a bit more tropical and take a tour of the Everglades. Crocodiles and wildlife are abundant in this area and you can arrange to see it all with an Airboat ride.
