Check out the country’s best new (and free) modern art museum
The new Institute of Contemporary Art in Buena Vista doesn’t just combine 20,000 square feet of gallery with a 15,000-square-foot sculpture garden so you and your date can enjoy Miami’s weather while taking in the provocative modern works. It’s also completely free.
Go on a Wynwood beer crawl
Wynwood has become Miami’s go-to 'hood for beer. You can start out visiting three breweries, beginning at J Wakefield, then mosey down the street to Concrete Beach and Wynwood Brewing Company. If you're looking for some more variety, head down to KUSH Wynwood, Gramps, and Boxelder Craft Beer Market. Stomachs full of beer always make for great ends-of-dates.
Visit farms and eat cinnamon rolls
Winter time means one thing: Cinnamon rolls from Knaus Berry Farm. But since Homestead can be kind of a schlep, why not make a whole day out of it? Hit Robert Is Here for some milkshakes and fresh picked produce, then feed some of the nastiest farm animals you’ll ever meet at the petting zoo out back. Pick up some rolls for dessert at Knaus, then make a big healthy dinner with the bounty you just harvested.
While folks in Pittsburgh or Toronto might laugh at the idea of a pro hockey game as a “cheap” date, well, this is Florida. And if you’re willing to watch the Panthers take on a team you’ve never heard of, tickets routinely run under $10 on StubHub. With free parking across the street at Sawgrass Mills, this can be cheaper than a movie.
Catch the fastest game on earth
Jai-alai, believe it or not, is not just a delicious IPA. It’s a game where men in helmets hurl a ball against a wall at speeds over 100mph, and you bet on who wins while drinking beer and heckling. With $2 minimum bets and cheap beer, Dania Jai-Alai is hours of entertainment where you might actually come out ahead.
