Fairchild Tropical Garden
If you need to escape Miami’s madness, consider a green day in the country’s largest tropical botanical garden. A butterfly grove, tropical plant conservatory, and gentle vistas of marsh and keys habitats, plus frequent art installations from artists like Roy Lichtenstein, are all stunning.
Few American parks can claim to front such a lovely stretch of turquoise, but Miamians are lucky like that. Notable park features are two performance venues: the Klipsch Amphitheater, which boasts excellent views over Biscayne Bay, is a good spot for live music shows, while the smaller 200-seat Tina Hills Pavilion hosts free springtime performances.
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
They call Miami the Magic City, and if it is, this Italian villa, the housing equivalent of a Fabergé egg, is its most fairytale residence. In 1916, industrialist James Deering started a Miami tradition by making a ton of money and building ridiculously grandiose digs. He employed 1000 people (then 10% of the local population) and stuffed his home with 15th to 19th century furniture, tapestries, paintings and decorative arts; today, the grounds are used for rotating contemporary art exhibitions.
