5 Outdoor Miami Attractions Where You Can Social Distance
As Miami begins to reopen post-coronavirus quarantine, tourists are returning to the city and looking for ways to have fun while still social distancing. One way to do that is to hop on your scooter rental and check out some of the many outdoor attractions that Miami has to offer!
If you’re planning a trip to Miami soon, be sure to add these spots to your itinerary.
#1 – Wynwood Walls
A massive collection of graffiti and street art commissioned by the late city revitalizer, Tony Goldman, Wynwood Walls is a free, open-air, walking art exhibit. Located in the warehouse district of Wynwood, more than 50 artists from 16 countries used blank warehouse walls as their canvas to create more than 80,000 square feet of art. The walls are open daily and free to visit. Note: the safest way to get to downtown Miami (the mainland) from South Beach is via the Venetian Causeway, as the lower speed limit accommodates 50cc scooter rentals.
#2 – Art Deco Walking Tour
A trip to Miami isn’t complete without taking in some of the city’s iconic art deco architecture. While you can certainly cruise around the district on your own, the Miami Design & Preservation League also offers scheduled guided walking tours with a tour guide. The slower pace gives you more time to take in the beautiful sights, while the tour guide tells the history behind the buildings and the art deco movement.
#3 – Boat Tours
If you’re ready for a different perspective of the city, park your scooter and check out one of the many Miami water tour operators. You can choose from different packages, with some tours taking you past the exclusive mansions of Star Island, while others take you through Biscayne Bay for stunning views of the city skyline. There are even Everglades boat tours, complete with a luxury bus ride out to the Glades. The company has reopened, but advance reservations are required as they are keeping groups small in order to social distance.
#4 – Lummus Park
An urban park with beach access, Lummus Park is located off Ocean Drive, in the heart of the Art Deco District and across from the iconic Clevelander hotel and bar. The park features trails for walking, biking, or rollerblading, as well as exercise equipment, volleyball courts, playgrounds, and of course, sand and surf! It’s a great spot to take a picnic, grab a seat under a palm tree, and enjoy some people-watching.
#5 – Water Sports
Rent a kayak and paddle into the mangroves, or test your balance on a paddleboard as you cruise through the channels of Sunset Islands. This operator even offers a sunset paddleboard tour complete with neon boards that glow and light up the water beneath you. For a little more adventure, consider chartering a private yacht or party boat, going on a deep-sea fishing excursion, parasailing over the city, renting a jetski, jetpack, or flyboard, or heading under the waves on a diving or snorkeling trip.
