Hours in Miami 

Twenty-four hours in Miami can either be the start of a morning or the end of an epic night. The best way to explore “The Magic City” is to first begin on Miami Beach with sunrise yoga at dawn.  

From there, rent a bike, walk, or run-down Collins Avenue to Abba for a healthy and delicious Mediterranean breakfast. The sun is now starting to hit in full force; drive to Coconut Grove, stroll the majestic gardens of the Vizcaya Museum, rent a paddle board or jet ski, and jump into beautiful Biscayne Bay.  

After you work up another appetite, head toward Little Havana, stroll the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame and stop in Versailles for its famous Cuban sandwich.  

Miami’s art scene is more than Art Basel; the city is home to world-renowned art museums. Take your pick from the Pérez Art Museum Miami, The Bass, the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse in Wynwood, or countless other galleries and exhibits.  

Golden Hour is epic in Miami. With stunning sunsets off the bay. Need a drink? Head to Monty’s Raw Bar for oysters and a great view of the Miami marina, Joia Beach Club for music along the water or stop in at Bai Beach Club at the Mondrian Hotel for sunset cocktails.  

Now the real fun begins. As the sun sets, the city’s world-famous nightlife takes off. There is no shortage of dining options in Miami, from bottle service and sparklers to old-school establishments and international cuisine.  

Shining the bright lights in the city, Mila and Komodo provide an over-the-top experience for those looking to cut loose. Don’t underestimate Miami’s history with the 1950s glamour of the Surf Club and the world-famous Joe’s Stone Crab. Looking for some of the best Caribbean food in the world? Check out Creole Little Kitchen and Piman Bouk in Little Haiti. DJs and Entertainers run the night in Miami.  

After dinner, it is time to hit the dance floor. The options are limitless. Take your pick from Salsa clubs, famous nightclubs, such as LIV and Story, to trendy new spots in the Wynwood neighborhood.  

However the day begins or ends, we will see you tomorrow morning at sunrise on the beach. The beat and rhythm of the Magic City never stops.
