While walking along Biscayne Boulevard, you’ll catch a glimpse of the Port of Miami. The busiest port in the world, it served 5.3 million visitors in 2017, hence the city’s moniker, “The Cruise Capital of the World.”
Directly in front of Bayside Marketplace, don’t miss the Simón Bolívar monument. The Venezuelan “liberator of Latin America” from the Spanish colonies is featured here surrounded by a share of Latin American flags.
Adjacent to Bayside, Bayfront Park is a 32-acre urban park with a children’s playground, artist statues and a sandy area with loungers and waterfront views where you can enjoy the gentle breeze underneath the palm trees. The best part of Bayfront is you can continue along the sidewalk until you cross the Brickell Avenue Bridge onto Brickell’s business district. (You can also hop on the free Metromover which is located just across Biscayne Boulevard.) For a tour of Miami Beach, you’ll have to take the bus, but once there it’s easy to navigate on trolley, bus or by foot!
