Go on a tranquil hike through the Everglades
A scant 20 miles or so from downtown, we have one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. A hike through the Cypress trees, swamps, and mangroves at Shark Valley or the Gumbo Limbo trail can be calmingly romantic and won’t cost you much more than the price of OFF!... and gas.
Wok this way
Impress your date with some slicing, dicing, stir fry action. And even if it doesn’t work out with your new flame, you’ll come out a Wok Star.
Discover a new park
With daytime temperatures that won’t make you sweat through your shirt, now’s the perfect time to discover the serene wilderness of some of the county parks. Matheson Hammock is a waterfront slice of old Florida with one of the most secluded beaches in the city. Or take the most scenic bike ride in Hialeah along the trails at Amelia Earhart Park.
Pretend its winter on ice skates
Just because our version of winter involves 80-degree temperatures and palm trees with Christmas lights doesn’t mean we can’t get into the winter spirit. Although we lack ponds, the ice skating rink at the EDITION is a fun way to stumble through a new skill together and only costs $30. Or if you want to go a little more native (and cheaper), there’s always the Kendall Ice Arena for $11. Both include skate rental.
