May 2021: May in Miami is busy! We’ve updated this list with two of the essential happenings this month: South Beach Wine and Food Festival and Rolling Loud. We’re so thrilled to see these two major events return. We’ve bumped Joe’s from the list now that stone crab season is over and said goodbye to the Dali exhibit, which was a great one. In its place, you’ll find the immersive Van Gogh experience as well as Lasting Impression at the Arsht Center, where art and Instagram opportunities abound.
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.
