Where I stayed
Deering Estate at Cutler
This is a historic estate establishing by Charles Deering (the older brother of James who did Vizcaya). While this estate is archaeologically quite significant, none of the finds or archaeological areas where on display while we were there. The buildings and grounds were interesting enough, but did not have the impact of Vizcaya.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
The admission price ($25 each) seemed a little steep until we had a look inside
Even people who are not normally interested in Botanical Gardens should find this one absorbing.
Miami Bus Tour
Miami is known for its Art Deco buildings. We figured the best way to see them was from the open upper-deck of a tourist bus. There are laws in Miami preserving the Art Deco buildings and preventing any of the existing ones from being copied. The bus, amongst other things, took in well known areas of Miami, such as Little Havana and Miami Beach (including Muscle Beach).
Little Havana is an area of Miami heavily influenced by it's Cuban population and is named after the capital of Cuba, Havana
Sawgrass Recreation Park
We couldn't leave Florida without have a ride on an Air Boat.
