Miami Seaquarium

This is a marine animal dream, covering an impressive 38 acres.

You can even swim with the seals and dolphins. Miami Seaquarium tickets can be purchased in advance and there are often seasonal discounts and special offers for visitors to take advantage of.

Hanging out at the Beach

Miami Beach and South Beach both boast long stretches of golden sand for visitors to spread out on. People who want to get back to nature and unwind for a while will find that soaking up on these beautiful beaches is the perfect way to relax and unwind. Both are lined with amenities such as shops and restaurants, while local companies offer equipment hire to people who want to spend a little time messing about in the water.

Ancient Spanish Monastery

This magnificent building was originally built in Segovia in Spain, then dismantled brick by brick, brought over and rebuilt. It offers an important insight into the rich history and culture of Miami. The monastery dates back to 1141, making it one of the oldest buildings in the area. The monastery still serves as a working church to this day, and it is a popular place to get married.
