The Coppertone girl sign
Psst: The poor Coppertone girl was partially decapitated by Hurricane Irma. Fortunately, she’s since been reunited with the upper third of her noggin. (7300 Biscayne Blvd)
Welcome to Miami Beach sign
Psst: Make sure to have a passenger snap this, as there is no parking on the Julia Tuttle Causeway, and the stop-and-go traffic requires your attention. (Heading east on the Julia Tuttle Causeway, near Alton Rd)
Psst: The murals in this free outdoor gallery change each year during Art Basel. Be sure to snap 2017’s 12 new installations before they go away for good.

Vizcaya’s spiral staircase
Bowling at Basement
Calle Ocho rooster sculptures
Psst: Keep your eyes peeled for these colorful cocks, randomly situated every couple of blocks, when strolling down Calle Ocho. Though originally a flock of 80 in 2002, only a handful of these commissioned statues remain. (Calle Ocho at various locations)
Mana Wynwood’s rooftop poem
Psst: This poem, written by student Nieema Marshall at Orchard Villa Elementary School, was painted on the roof of Mana Wynwood during the 2016 O, Miami Poetry Festival. Sadly, you’ll need a drone to capture it.

Palm trees in the breeze
Psst: The milkshake shop’s interior is an exact replica of owner Matt Kuscher’s childhood home. Thirsty? The washing machine is loaded with cans of PBR.
