Explore Miami Beach Like a Local

Planning a vacation to Miami Beach? One of the world’s premier destinations for fun in the sun, Miami Beach hosts over 10 million visitors every year. While there is lots to see and do, it’s easy to get caught up with the tourist attractions and miss some of the magic that happens when experiencing Miami Beach like a local.

5 Tips to Get the Local Experience

1. Go for a Run | An island surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach offers an array of recreational activities. Skip the rollerblades and jog or walk along the bayside or oceanfront paths south from the hotel down to Government Cut and around the southern tip of the island. At Southpointe, enjoy the outdoor sculptures and take a minute to get an up-close view of the cruise ships as they head out to sea.

2. Bike or Uber | To enjoy Miami’s spectacular weather, pick up a bike at a bike sharing station located throughout the city for a minimal fee. If it’s a bit too hot for your liking, hop in an Uber, where a few dollars will get you around Miami Beach easily.

3. Eat Local | Miami Beach benefits from a rich immigrant history and the impact these cultures have made on its gastronomic scene. Around the Leslie Hotel you’ll find Cuban specialties such as vaca frita (fried steak) at Puerto Sagua, regional Haitian stews at Tap Tap, and Peruvian ceviche at Ceviche305. For a truly local meal, head to La Sandwicherie for a mid-day sandwich on crunchy french bread.

4. Follow the Dress Code | As this is a beach city, flip-flops and T-shirts are a common sight but Miami is also a sophisticated town. Do as the locals do and be casual during the day; at night, dress to impress.

5. Wear Sunscreen | If you’re truly a local, you know that the Florida sun isn’t kidding around. Wear a 30 spf sunscreen when you go outside to protect your skin from UV rays and reduce the chances of a sunburn. A bright red sunburn is a sure giveaway that you aren’t a local!
