First-time visitors to the city will want to hit all the famed attractions. The best option is a guided tour which takes people as a group to all the right places such as the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Jungle Island, Coral Castle, Zoo Miami and Gator Park. Browsing and shopping in South Beach and on Lincoln Road is something that most tourists enjoy, so they are usually included in all the tour itineraries.
For those who prefer a less rigid itinerary, buying a multi-day ticket for a hop-on hop-off bus route is a better choice. These buses follow city and beach loops that include popular tourist spots. Passengers can get off at any stop and then get on the bus again at any point along the route at a later time or even on the next day.
The starting point for these buses is Central Station. The beach loop then takes passengers on a circuitous route around the island of Miami Beach, offering spectacular views on Collins Avenue, Ocean Drive and South Beach. The city loop bus drives through all the tourist-friendly districts, including Coral Gables, Downtown Miami, Little Havana and Coconut Grove. This route allows passengers to stop by at famed tourist attractions such as the Art Deco District and Vizcaya.
Day trips are just as exciting as the city itself. A popular day trip is an Everglades adventure involving a fast airboat ride and going eye-to-eye with some of the 2,000 hungry and mean residents of the alligator farm. A decidedly more relaxing day can be spent poking around on the beautiful island of Key West.
Foodies looking for a taste of the Caribbean may opt for culinary tours. Little Havana is a good place to find Cuban dishes, with tour stops for sampling everything from breaded chicken toston and plantains to a Cafe Cubano. South Beach is ideal for those who need more variety in their food. This tour will stop by at delis offering Jewish fare, Italian restaurants with succulent gelatos, Colombian eateries for homemade empanadas, and a lot more. Individuals may also ask for a custom food tour.
Fitness conscious visitors can opt for a bicycle or walking tour. This can be a stroll down Little Havana's Calle Ocho, or it can be an exploration of Miami Beach's art deco treasures. Many tourists can also be found rattling along in groups on segways along the riverfront or to various sunset points facing the ocean.
Those who want to get to know the city have a huge list of self-guided tours of Miami Florida to choose from. Just follow the GPS as it leads the way from one point of interest to the next in each area, along with audio to indicate what to see and do. Tourists planning to do this may want to get a Go Miami Card. It will be much more affordable than paying entry fees at each attraction individually.
