If you live in Miami, it can be hard to make the most of your time in the summer. The weather makes it hard to spend all your time outdoors—but it’s almost impossible to sit at home and miss out on the glorious summertime activities that Miami has to offer.
After months under lockdown, now’s the time to let loose and—responsibly—have all the fun you can. But if you’re tired of being a beach bum, and want to do something else this summer, we’ve got you covered.
Here are the best summertime activities that are hotter than the Miami sun:
Be at the Florida Keys
Technically not in Miami, but a few hours away, the Florida Keys are a must-see for anyone headed to Miami this summer. The Overseas Highway experience alone is what makes it worth it, thanks to the incredible sights along the way. You can make a day trip out of it or enjoy a weekend getaway.
Off-season tourists in Florida Keys are few and far between. This makes it the perfect time to hit the Keys for their incredible architecture, historical significance, amazing nightlife, and tons of tourist activities. If you’re into island hopping, the Florida Strait has six gorgeous islands waiting for your summer tour. These include Lower and Upper Matecumbe Key, Plantation Key, Windley Key, Indian Key, and Lignumvita Key.
You can do a range of things, from diving in for a snorkeling adventure to exploring a historic shipwreck that the Keys are famous for. And to top it all off, there's freshly-made seafood to devour after an action-packed day!
