If you find yourself alone in Miami, get excited - the city has plenty to offer. A recent report by Pinterest found that searches for solo adventures are up 593%. There is no better place to jump on this travel trend than Magic City! To help you get going we’ve made a list of the best places to see, eat, and hang while traveling solo in Miami.
1. Plan the Perfect Beach Day
It’s not a visit to Miami unless you dip your toes in the warm waters of South Beach. Let our eco-friendly Tuk Tuk shuttle take you there. Perfect for quick trips around SoBe, our Tuk Tuk is happy to pick you up after too much sun (or too many mojitos) at the beach. A solo trip to the beach is the perfect time to disconnect, catch some z’s in the salty air, or spend the afternoon tearing through a beach read.
2. Spend the Day in Wynwood
Known for its colorful murals, Wynwood is one of Miami’s most trendiest neighborhoods. Located north of downtown, the Wynwood Walls outdoor museum showcases murals by some of the world’s most famous street artists. Visit the colorful district for an art walking tour, indie craft breweries, and hip eateries.
3. Tour the Art Deco District
The pastel colors of Art Deco architecture marked South Beach’s rise in the 1920s and 30s to iconic status. Today, this legacy stands as the best Art Deco neighborhood in the nation. While in SoBe, explore over 800 buildings in the Art Deco Historic District, located between 5th Street and 23rd Street, along Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue, and Washington Avenue. Check out our Art Deco guide for some can’t-miss architectural gems.
4. Eat Your Way Through Miami
Eating out alone can be a daunting endeavor, but Miami’s restaurant scene is too good to pass up when you’re solo. Think of it as a new adventure. Dining alone invites excellent conversation from strangers you may not have had otherwise. Make friends with the host or waiter. Take pleasure in people watching from one of Lincoln Road’s outdoor cafés. This is the time to experience things in your own unique way. From brunch to late night sushi cravings, we’ve got a Miami restaurant guide for you. Check out our blog for the best Miami eats, cocktails, and where to score the perfect cup of Miami’s signature Cuban coffee.
5. Walk Along Ocean Drive
Take a stroll along the iconic South Beach street to see if you can spot where some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters were filmed. From Washington Park Hotel, take 11th Street east towards the beach and take a left on Ocean Drive. As you make your way north, check out Lummus Park on your right and the famous Gianni Versace House on the corner of 11th and Ocean Drive. The palm-lined street will take you past colorful Art Deco buildings, South Beach’s most renowned bars and eateries, and an amazing array of shops.
