You are here

Miami is one of those cities you can't fully explore during a one-and-done trip. Many people visit and decide to come back for more. If you want the road less traveled this time around, check out these unique things to do in Miami. 

Take a day trip to Rapids Water Park and Lion Country Safari, or stay in the city limits with a Wynwood Graffiti Tour and a visit to Miami Brewing Company. Whatever you choose to do, we hope you choose Sextant Stays as your home base.

 

Rapids Water Park

Take a drive and hang out at Rapids Water Park for the day. South Florida’s largest water park spans over 30 acres and boasts 42 attractions, including a wave pool, 7-story speed slides, raft rides, and a lazy river. Even better, they offer deals for discounted rates from 4-7 pm on certain days.

Lion Country Safari

There’s only one thing better than the zoo: Florida's Lion Country Safari! Lion Country Safari is one of the attractions that every Floridian agrees is a must-visit. Enjoy two sections: the drive-through cageless safari and the walk-through amusement park. And the icing on the cake: you can see Tonk, the rare baby chimpanzee born at the beginning of 2022.

Everglades Alligator Farm

Here's a party conversation starter — who else can say they held an alligator? That's exactly what you can do at the Everglades Alligator Farm. On the Alligator Encounter Tour, you meet baby alligators and crocodiles, hold an alligator over three feet long, and feed over 250 gators. You can also hop on an airboat ride through the Everglades and see a show.

 

Wynwood Graffiti Tour

There are two ways to explore the Wynwood Art Walk: by foot or golf cart. Visit and discuss the contemporary art and murals, and learn more about the history of the Wynwood art scene. 

 

Tony Goldman, a community revitalizer and developer, created the Wynwood Walls with the goal to create a center for people to explore and expose them to the underappreciated genre of graffiti and street art. Over 80,000 square feet of the walls are covered with art from American and international artists — a true glimpse into the cultural melting pot that is Miami.

But because it’s outside, don’t forget to wear sunscreen!

 


Miami Brewing Company

There’s no better review than the one that Conde Nast gave this brewery: “​​The whole place feels a bit like a block party, where the beer is cold and everyone is welcome.” Treat yourself by ordering a flight with a unique appetizer like guava wings. As for the beer, the Miami Brewing Company rotates its flavor lineup throughout the year. Sip on a fruity beer in the summer, and enjoy a full-bodied pumpkin beer in the fall. This is the place to kick back and relax after a day full of activities.
