Fun Things to Do in South Florida: An Insiders Guide

The surf, the sun, the culture, what’s not to love about South Florida? This area is an exciting hub of fun outdoor activities, jaw-dropping beaches, one-of-a-kind culture, and so much more.

From the area’s most gorgeous beaches and oceanfront destinations to the hottest night clubs and art districts, there’s something here for everyone. Allow me to guide you through this area’s can’t-miss attractions. It’s so easy to have fun in South Florida, I’ve broken it up into categories.

The Culture

Sidewalk art with chalk.Searching for cultural bliss in South Florida? Nothing comes close to the famed Miami Design District. This neighborhood is one-of-a-kind, and it’s packed with over 130 galleries, showrooms, stores, eateries, and more. Venues in this district host special seasonal events, so depending on when you visit you may be in for a show-stopping treat!

Popular events include film festivals, fashion exhibits, and musical performances featuring world-class artists. Not only is it a haven for art lovers, it also features amazing restaurants, bars, and other fun things to do!

I highly recommend siting down at the Mandolin Aegean Bistro for an unforgettable meal or Boombox on Wynwood for a night of dancing and drinking gourmet cocktails!

The Art

Head to Wynwood Walls. This urban graffiti art museum is a mainstay of Miami culture—and for good reason. I’m not kidding when I say that this location is dripping with art, it’s on every single wall! It’s the perfect addition to any trip to Miami, and when you live here you’ll want to visit again and again.

The art changes out regularly and this is the perfect place to discover new and exciting artists. I recommend grabbing an iced coffee or some ice cream and taking your time perusing the different works of art. It’s unlike any other museum you’ve visited, I promise!

Craving something indoors? Check out the Museum of Contemporary Art, which regularly features carefully curated exhibitions of modern artists and a permanent collection that never gets old.

The Beach

Young boy skipping on the beach.Ok, so now it’s time to talk about the real reason you want to move to South Florida. I don’t blame you—the beaches here are magnificent. There are so many to choose from but I’m going to focus on my top three.

If you’re in Miami, South Beach is iconic. It’s one of the most popular beaches in the world because it’s gorgeous and perfectly accented by all the fun things to do in Miami.

Looking for something a little more tranquil? Go to Sunny Isles Beach, famous for its soft white sand and unbelievably clear waters. This is a wonderful location for snorkeling and other aquatic recreation!

Want to go for a run along the shoreline? Then you can’t go wrong with a trip to Siesta Beach, which boasts an eight-mile shoreline and beautiful sparkling sand.
