Fri 29

Lincoln Road Walking Tour

Stroll one of Miami’s most stunning outdoor malls and famed walkways, which was once affectionately called the Fifth Avenue of the South. More than scope out of the area’s shops, guests of the tour will learn about the neighborhood’s history and its colorful architecture.

Jazz at MOCA x Miami Big Sound Orchestra

Spend the last Friday of 2017 picnicking under the stars while the Miami Big Sound Orchestra serenades you free of charge. It’s all part of MOCA’s free jazz series, happening on the last Friday of each month. Make time before or after the concert to explore the museum's groundbreaking exhibit “How to Unlock a Portal,” from Swedish artist Jacob Felländer, which guests may browse free of charge from 7 to 10pm.

Sat 30

Elements Fitness Pop-Up

Make one last-ditch effort at getting toned this weekend, when Elements Fitness—the Hamptons studio frequented by the likes of Kelly Ripa and Sarah Jessica Parker—touches down at the 1 Hotel. You have two opportunities get fit: Friday’s class is TonedAF, a barre/pilates-style workout, while Saturday’s session, SexyAF, is high-energy, cardio-focused class designed to make you sweat.

Nikki Beach Rosé Saturdays with Pinky Party

Party alongside Instagram sensation Josh Ostrovsky, a.k.a. the Fat Jewish, who brings his sparkling rosé—Pinky Party Rosé with Bubbles—to South Beach for one epic brunch party. Bottles of the basic stuff are just $35 bucks during the event.

Sun 31

Noon Year’s Eve at Miami Children’s Museum

Most little ones won’t stay up long enough to count down to 2018, but the Miami Children's Museum is making sure they don’t miss out on this fun New Year’s Eve tradition. The popular kid-friendly hangout shifts the schedule slightly, hosting its own festive celebration at noon—complete with a balloon drop and confetti.

Sunday yoga at Atton Brickell

You’re officially running out of excuses for not getting in shape in 2018: Atton Brickell’s new weekly yoga series is completely free and the folks will even loan you a mat for class (first come, first served). After your hour-long sivananda practice, a particular style of hatha yoga, you’ll fuel up with gratis granola bars and smoothies. Should you decide to stick around longer, the hotel's stunning rooftop is open to locals.
