Woodlawn Cemetery Walking Tour with Dr. George

Halloween isn’t for another month, but it’s never too soon to get in the eerie spirit. Join HistoryMiami’s on a walk through one of Miami’s oldest cemeteries, Woodlawn Park North, where you’ll see the final resting places of some of Miami’s most notable families. The tour includes stops at famous mausoleums and monuments, including some dedicated to American soldiers and leaders of the Bay of Pigs Invasion. The tour departs from Caballero Rivero Woodlawn Park North Cemetery and Mausoleum (3260 SW 8th St) and admission to the museum is included in the ticket price.

Daybreaker: Groovy Grove

With so much green space, it’d be a shame not to take your workout outdoors in Coconut Grove. Join Daybreaker, as it takes its daytime party to the Barnacle for a waterfront, 1960s shindig that kicks off with a connective yoga flow led by Lizzy Chiappy of Casa Vinyasa followed by a fun dance break. Hydrate with matcha lattes, kombucha and other good-for-you bevs.

Live Art Battle at CityPlace Doral

Wynwood isn’t the only place with large-scale works of art. Head to Doral for CityPlace’s first annual’s live art battle and watch as local artists face off to create custom installations. You’ll vote on the winner, dance to live music, throw back a few cocktails and have an overall above-average mall experience.
