As a Chicago guy turned Miamian (and I really am a true Miamian now based on this list) I’m lucky enough to be able to spend every single weekend where I love the most — outside (minus the 2:30PM rainy season thunderstorms). If you live in Miami Beach, one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in my opinion is Sunset Harbour. It’s packed with amazing vegan restaurants, like Soul Tavern with a great outdoor patio.
Whether you’re visiting or live here, you should rent a paddle board from South Beach Kayak. It’s super affordable, the people are great and you can spend a sunny afternoon exploring the intracoastal which many folks in South Beach forget is even a thing.
See incredible views of downtown, like this:
There are spots perfect for jumping out and swimming, not to mention the absolutely ridiculous architecture and views of J Lo’s mansion.
