    Very cool district with a lot of nice graffiti’s and other arts! We love the small cafes and restaurants. You don’t have to buy a ticket. All walls are free to watch around the wynwood walls „museum“.
    Very good! We visit again.

    This was my 2nd time at ZWF and my daughter's 1st. She loved it as much as I do! The staff always treats you like you are family! Interacting with all of the animals is so amazing! From feeding the tiger, capybara, sloths, monkeys, serval, otters and lemur, to holding the lemur, monkey, snakes and lizards, to playing tug-of-war with the tiger and interacting with the new guinea singing dogs and artic timber wolf (we got lots of loving from them), we couldn't stop smiling! It was an amazing 1st day in Miami and we will definitely be back. If we didn't live in PA, we would visit all the time!

    Excellent art themed destination in Miami. It is only $12 to enter the art exhibit- Wynwood walls. We highly recommend this experience- takes about an hour to see. There’s also graffiti areas in the area we saw on a tour that were amazing.

    Monkey Jungle was founded in the 1930s and is still owned by the same family. It really is a hidden gem located outside Miami Proper. We were able to spend about 2.5 hours there wondering around the lush grounds. Everything is super clean and well maintained. There are of course monkeys, but also some reptiles that will get your attention, and several bird species. We attended three different informational shows . It was fun to feed the tortoises and the iguana , along with learning their histories. You can also purchase packets of dried fruit to place in bowls for the monkeys to retrieve. . The staff are very friendly and are full of great information . (I believe there are over 400 monkeys on property). We even got to see one swim ! I definitely suggest stopping in. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

    This is a worthwhile visit. Go to the wood frame house first and find the video in the drawing room and sit for all of it. It gives you great historic information and some interesting tidbits. I would go to Fairchild Gardens and Viscaya first, but this is a good addition to the story of South Florida.

    A very nice arboretum for tropical plant lovers. Very quiet usually so it’s a joy to be there. The staff is excited to see guests and a knowledgeable groups is always working on the gardens. The “pointe” is amazing. Sitting on the waterfront with all the nature around you. They have alligators and crocodiles in residence though I didn’t see any. We did see peacocks and a raccoon. I can’t recommend it enough.

    Pleasant small park with lovely bay views. Only $2pp to enter. We enjoyed strolling round the grounds but didn’t go into the house.

    Architect Jose Esteves guided our group of architects from Brazil with great dedication, showing us old and contemporary buildings in downtown Miami. All of his explanations were accompanied by the context of the projects, behind-the-scenes details, and lots of useful information. Even for those who are not in the field of architecture, the historical information is of great interest and will arouse curiosity in those who can enjoy the company of the very friendly Jose.

    Stopped here during a food tour of Little Havana. Mr. Galnza is an excellent and welcoming artist. He produces products in a range of styles and prices. It is great to have a combination artist studio and Tavern.

    We came here to do the zombie lab room! The host we had ( a guy, can’t remember the name) he was amazing! He made the whole experience even better than we thought it would be. We struggled a bit as there was only 2 of us but it was brilliant! Definitely want to come back to do another room!

    Mariela was, hands down the BEST tour guide in Little Havana (even her husband thinks so)! Seriously though, everything about this experience was enjoyable; food, the history, the culture and the feeling of community. Enough to put a lump in my throat and fill my belly beyond what I expected. Plenty of time and more than enough food at every stop. Can’t recommend this tour enough.

    We did the 90 minute semi-private air boat tour with Captain Mike and thoroughly enjoyed it! Captain Mike was a great guide and was very knowledable, friendly and fun. We felt very safe with him in the airboat. The directions to the meeting point at the dock were easy to follow. We highly recommend this company for your Everglades airboat excursion!

    Great Mojitos and many flavors. Decor was vibrant and fun but aged. Noise and smoking (skunk) was hard to tolerate.
    Drinks was fun and atmosphere could be fun ..
