While summer is probably the time of year that comes to mind when it comes to vacations, traveling can be fun year-round – especially when the destination is somewhere like Miami, which enjoys pleasant weather even in the months that are snowy in many other places. If you’re looking to visit Miami this fall, here are 7 off-the-beaten-path things to do to mix it up!
1. Visit Perez Art Museum
Perez Art Museum Miami is a contemporary museum that features the works of artists from various different cultures, from America to Africa. Boasting a collection of nearly 2,000 works, viewing the varied and beautiful art that calls this museum home can be a peaceful way to spend an afternoon. Tickets are available online.
2. Check Out The Tinez Farms Fall Festival
Spooky wonderland isn’t the only seasonal festival in Miami this fall! If ghouls and ghosts aren’t quite up your alley, Tinez Farms Fall Festival might be! This family-friendly event offers fun for all ages. Some of the attractions include bouncy houses, an animal barnyard, and of course, a pumpkin patch! Tickets are available online.
3. See Manatees
Head to Biscayne National Park to get a chance to see these beautiful sea mammals up close! Black Point Park and Marina is a popular place to catch glimpses of manatees, and late fall is one of the best times to see them. November through March is typically considered Florida’s manatee season when these gentle giants come closer to shore seeking warmer waters.
4. Take A Dip In The Venetian Pool
Swimming season might have ended in many places, but Florida still offers warm enough temperatures to enjoy a day lounging by a pool, even in the fall. Venetian pool is the perfect pool to do so by! Far from your typical public pool, the Venetian pool features gorgeously intricate architecture. Information about admission is available here, and the pool is open through the end of November.
5. Relax At Miami Beach Botanical Gardens
If you’re wanting to add a little bit of peaceful relaxation to your trip, a visit to the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens is the perfect way to do so! Miami beach may be most well known for its nightlife, but the botanical gardens offer an excellent, less touristy activity. Whether you’re an enjoyer of nature or simply looking for a bit of quiet during an otherwise busy trip, this is a great place to spend a few hours this fall!
6. Go On A Ghost Tour
Here’s another option for those looking for some Halloween fun! Miami Haunts offers tours of the city that delve into the darker side of its history. From ghost stories to historical crimes, this tour is fun, even if you’re not a believer in the supernatural! Tickets are available online.
1. Stop By The Cat’s Meow Cafe
Here’s a pretty unique thing to do in Miami – visit and cuddle with cats! The Cat’s Meow Cafe hosts adoptable cats from a local rescue and offers visitors the chance to come to hang out and interact with them. It’s a win-win for everyone – not only do the cats get plenty of socialization and love while waiting for their forever home, but visitors also get to spend time with these adorable animals! Reservations are recommended due to the cafe’s popularity, and can be made online.
