Fun Things to Do in South Florida

My ultimate guide for you to find fun things to do in South Florida.

Southern Florida is the perfect destination for you to ralax and escape from the cold climate. Besides relaxing at the beach, there are many fun things to do in South Florida. South Florida is a home to the incredible natures and natural habitat, and there are many state parks and national parks. There area many fun things to do no matter what ages and interests you have. Here are some things I’d recommend doing, along with places to eat and stay.


Things to Do

Wynwood Walls

The walls and doors are soaked with bright, eclectic street art and graffiti. This is not just simple graffiti, but an outdoor art museum to be enjoyed for free. It is just 20 minutes away from South Beach. Whether you love Graffiti or not, I guarantee that you will be impressed and inspired upon visiting – the raw talent exhibited here is impressive and refreshing. This place also offers plenty of restaurants, shops, stores, and even night clubs. It’s a perfect place to have fun in South Florida! If you want to check out more contemporary arts, there is a museum called Pérez Art Museum Miami, 10 minutes away from Wynwood Walls. The admission is $16 for adults and $12 for youths.

Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park is located South West of Miami, and it is well known for the largest subtropical ecosystem in the United States. It is also famous for a bunch of wild alligators. It was my first time to ever see wild alligators, so I was very excited. If you visit Everglades, I strongly recommend you take airboat guided tours. The scenery was astonishing, and our guide was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants. We learned so much about Everglades ecosystem and habitats which are connected by wetlands and water bodies.We saw 2 alligators and even 3 wild raccoons! Some of the boat take you close to alligators, while others focus more on explaining the natural beauty of the environment. No matter what you want to see, you will have an experience of a lifetime. The ride was smooth but exhilarating.

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is located in Key Largo. It is the first undersea park in the United States, and most visors enjoy the beautiful coral reefs and their marine life. There are many unique activities to do, such as glass-bottom boat trip, snorkeling tours, scuba diving, kayaks, and a small beach to relax. It is recommended to do glass-bottom boat trip.

Biscayne National Park

Biscayne National Park is the largest marine park in the US national park, which is protecting the northernmost Key West, mangrove shorelines, and living coral reefs. At Biscayne National Park, you will encounter diverse and colorful aquatic life, including sea turtles, sharks, jellyfish, and more than 500 species of fish. You can snorkel and watch wildlife, but you can also simply relax ash the beach. During November and April, you have a chance to even a manatee. It is definitely a fun place to explore in South Florida.

What to Eat

Mignonette

I introduced Wynwood Walls earlier for their vibrant murals, but there’s also a great seafood restaurant nearby.  The name is Mignonette Miami. Reservations are suggested as this place is busy. It had high reviews on Yelp, so our expectations were high, but it didn’t disappoint us!

For appetizers,  I recommend trying a sampler plate of the oysters, so you can get tastes of the different selections from West coast to East coast. Each oyster was fresh and excellent. We also tried their clam chowder and Lobster Deviled Eggs, and my highlight was definitely the chowder! It was probably the best chowder I ever had. For entrees, each one of us got the lobster roll and it was absolutely delicious. Their portion of lobster was very generous, and the crusty bread was delightful. For dessert, I strongly recommend you try their bread pudding! It was a butterscotch bread pudding with cayenne whipped cream, and the flavors were to die for.

A La Folie Café

A La Folie Cafe – This place was such a gem! I loved everything about it – I felt like I was in Paris. The interior was lovely and comfortable (there was even a cute kitty!), and their crape was phenomenal. I had a crape called NORMANDE – caramelized apples with a Calvados cream sauce. It was not too sweet and the flavor was absolutely delightful. Their cappuccino was perfectly presented as well.

Where to Stay

North Miami is a popular place to stay in Miami, but it is usually very crowded, loud, and expensive. If you are looking for hotels to relax in front of a beautiful beach, I recommend you stay at Grand Beach Hotel Surfside – located in the vibrant town of Surfside, Florida. The hotel is right in front of the ocean, so all you have to do is walk out the back door and you will be amazed by their beautiful private beach. The hotel provides chairs, umbrellas, and towels.

The room was very spacious, clean, and decorated in all white. The big balcony was a big plus, and the ocean view from the balcony was breathtaking. We also loved the super comfortable king bed. Besides the room, our favorite part of the hotel was their adult-only rooftop pool. Spectacular views, and you can have nice cocktails with great service. It’s definitely a perfect spot for romantic evening.
