Go swimming at Venetian Pool
In Miami, we love our rooftop pools, but we’re also OK with historic pools that are made out of coral rock formations, have Mediterranean caves, lookout towers and stone bridges, and are emptied and filled with fresh spring water daily.
Go to Miami’s “hidden” tequila bar
Aside from amazing slow-roasted pork shoulder tacos, Wynwood’s COYO Taco is also home to one of Miami’s speakeasies. Go for dinner, walk to the back, and look for a door marked “Employees Only.” It’s the secret passageway to a mezcal and tequila-based sanctuary that pumps electric music, serves popsicle-infused margaritas (or “Palelaritas”), and makes all of your tequila dreams come true.
Go to Robert Is Here
Rednecks aside, Homestead is also known for its huge groves of exotic fruits, including the weird ones that no one else has, like star fruit, papaya, lychees, carambola, jackfruit, and dragonfruit. Started by a guy named (gasp!) Robert, this fruit stand has been a local staple since 1960. Go when it's hottest -- which in Miami, is like, whenever -- and order a strawberry banana milkshake.
