The Star Attractions of Miami & South Florida

There’s always a flurry of activity in Miami and the Beaches, with a bevy of attractions at your fingertips. Many of these allow you to enjoy South Florida’s great outdoors and gorgeous weather, while others thrive in keeping alive the colorful history that makes this stretch of sunshine so attractive to millions.

After splashing about on the ocean waters located just a minute away from the Hotel St. Augustine, visitors often stop by Nikki Beach Club for a drink and socializing or head to Lummus Park for roller blading, biking or just people watching. Nature lovers often head to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens in Coral Gables to admire the myriad plants and trees (including the world’s largest collection of cycads and palms) or Jungle Island on Watson Island, where exotic animals, interactive shows and eco-friendly initiatives and interactive shows get you that much closer to wildlife.

Other famous attractions include Miami Seaquarium, where you can frolic with dolphins and enjoy many other underwater wonders; Venetian Pool, a gigantic pool formed from a coral rock quarry in the early 1920s that is fed with spring water and hides away cool caves and grottos; and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, an Italian Villa set in 180 acres of lush gardens that has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

It’s all within easy reach of our Miami Beach boutique hotel, and our friendly concierge staff can help you plan the perfect outing.
