Do & See
Miami has unlimited ways to charm visitors. The natural beauty of the city and its surroundings are breath-taking, and the great weather makes outdoor activities a possibility pretty much all year round. But Miami's architectural past and vibrant art scene will tempt you to spend some time indoors, and the warmth of the vastly international population will make you want to stay for good. Explore a little further from the city proper and discover the wonders of the Everglades or the Florida Keys, or stay close by and enjoy some of the beast beaches on the planet.

This beautiful state park on Key Biscayne is a favourite among both locals and visitors for its lovely beaches (listed among America's Top 10 Beaches) and sunsets, and for its historic lighthouse, the oldest structure in South Florida (1845). Possible activities include hiking and cycling paths with stunning views of downtown Miami's skyline across the water, as well as fishing, kayaking picnicking and resting at one of the two cafes. Free tours of the lighthouse begin at 10am and 1pm Thursdays to Mondays.

As there is no public transportation to the park, the best way to get there is in a rented car or with one of the many organized tours either by boat or bus.
