ATTRACTIONS

Near the Cruise Terminal: You can’t get closer than Bayside Marketplace and adjacent Bayfront Park, where Port Blvd. and Biscayne Blvd. meet. The Marketplace hosts over 110 shops and eateries, and is the jumping-off spot for bus tours and harbor cruises (see next page). The landmark Freedom Tower is two blocks north on Biscayne Blvd., and the free Metromover is less than a block away. Watson Island, on the west end of MacArthur Causeway, hosts The Miami Children’s Museum ($18 ages 1 and up, http://www.miamichildrensmuseum.org) and Jungle Island (formerly Parrot Jungle) ($40/$33 ages 3-1, https://www.jungleisland.com).

Miami: Three miles from Downtown, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens preserves a palatial, Italian-style estate, with furnishings and art from the 15th through 19th centuries and a 10-acre formal garden. Price is $18/$6 ages 6-12. Located at 3251 S. Miami Ave., Coconut Grove. http://www.vizcayamuseum.org. Just west of Downtown, centered on SW 8th St., is Little Havana, famed spot for food and shopping from all of Latin America. Versailles Restaurant, 3555 SW 8th, is a long-time favorite and Cuba Tobacco Cigar Co. at 1528 SW 8th offers a glimpse of the cigar-roller’s craft.

Charming Espanola Way

Miami Beach: This nine-mile, hotel-studded barrier island starts just north of the port. Ocean Drive follows the oceanfront, and the 10-block strip north of 5th St. is wall-to-wall sidewalk cafés on one side, and Lumus Park Beach on the other, is the heart of South Beach and the eastern edge of the Art Deco District. The Art Deco Welcome Center is mid-way, at Ocean and 10th St. Most of the action is within a few blocks of the Atlantic, between Ocean Dr. and Washington Ave. Tree-shaded Lincoln Road Mall, is an eight-block shopping and dining promenade between 16th St. and 17th St. Espanola Way is a delightful, Mediterranean-styled area packed with cafés and boutiques, one block north of 14th St., off Washington.
