Like on most vacations, one of the best experiences to take from a holiday in Miami is the discovery of the city’s culture. The Magic City has a colorful quilt of different languages, ideas, and, of course, fashion. Here are the best places to take in Miami’s scenery.
Pulsating to the beat of live salsa music and an eclectic mix of visitors, Bayside’s open-air marketplace is ideal for experiencing the city’s international vibe. The waterfront marketplace sits along Biscayne Bay where party boats and yachts are docked, and it is home to various restaurants, popular stores, and souvenir shops. You’ll have plenty of vantage points from which to catch people in action, but the party boat is probably the most fun.
Good old Monty’s. The restaurant with a tiki hut bar and happy hour specials has front-row views of beautiful Miami sunsets you can’t un-see. A diverse crowd from local 9-to-5ers looking to unwind to mature-looking folks scouting out their next partner visit this spot. The best part? When the Miami heat gets sweating, you can jump into the pool, beer and all.
The artsy neighborhood in Miami always draws a busy crowd, even when they don’t have one of their art or beer festivals or thrift markets taking place. It’s generally busy during the day and night, full of locals and tourists who come to explore the food scene that’s imploded over the past few years. It doesn’t matter where you go here; whether it’s KYU for drinks and Korean food, the popular Panther Coffee or The Salty Donut, anywhere you walk is packed with local Miamian culture.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
