Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
January 2021: There’s nothing like winter in Florida. While the rest of the country makes snow angels, we play on the sand and take advantage of all there is to see and do outdoors without the need to bundle up. Great weather isn’t the only impetus to head outside this season: most of Miami’s top attractions have reopened after being closed for most of 2020. Below you’ll find museums to visit with the family, bars to check out with friends, restaurants to go and dine like a local and more of the best things to do in Miami whether you’re visiting or looking to explore a different side of home.
Locals and tourists can agree that the best things to do in Miami extend beyond lounging on the sand—though it goes without saying that spending some time on the best Miami beaches is fundamental to life in the 305. In the wintertime particularly, Miami is better known for its thriving cultural scene led by events like Art Basel and neighborhoods such as Wynwood, which every year turns over a brand new facade with the spate of fresh murals that debut during Miami Art Week. And lest we miss out on one of the most important aspects of life in the Magic City—eating!—it’s worth mentioning the booming culinary scene and the host of award-winning Miami restaurants that abound, many of whom we’ve invited to join us at Time Out Market Miami. In between sunbathing, swimming and sipping cocktails, check off these essential Miami experiences. By the way, this list is curated, as always, but isn’t ranked—we just couldn’t choose favorites.
