Christmas in Miami is truly magical: garland-wrapped palm trees, Santa cameos at brunch and festive holiday trees made of sand. It’s that time of the year when we give the amazing clubs in Miami a break, and instead stay in with the family (or book in at one of the best restaurants in Miami for a feast prepared by someone else—more on that below). Looking for things to do in Miami over the holidays, as well as places to eat and play? We’ve got you covered this holiday season. Forget snow—we’d rather sing Christmas carols chilling on the beach.
