Though locals might think of it more as a crowded, elevated, rolling soup kitchen, taking the entire loop from Brickell up to the Arsht Center and back is a great way to see the city from above. And should the cay mysteriously stop for no reason as it does once in a while, you can cross “walking the Mover tracks” off your Miami bucket list.
Work out outside
No need to shell out a car payment for a month at Equinox! We’ve got calisthenics courses and volleyball courts in South Beach, weight machines under the Metrorail in Brickell, and plenty of scenic runs all over the city. Your visitors will have a Miami-worthy body in no time, maybe minus the plastic surgery.
Go to the beach, obviously
For many locals, the only time we go to the beach is when people are in town, so find the Miami beach that’s best for them. If your crew wants to be in the middle of the action, South Beach is the move. But if they’d prefer a deserted tropical island feel, head out to Crandon Park. For the real Robinson Crusoe effect, go all the way to the end of Key Biscayne to Bill Baggs State Park. Or get crazy and strip down at Haulover.
